IEEE-USA Can Help You Start an Employment Network in Your Section
IEEE-USA encourages U.S. Sections (Regions 1-6) to launch their own Employment Networks. The purpose of these Networks is to provide more local networking opportunities and group support for IEEE members who are seeking employment opportunities. Employment Networks are taken from the Job Club concept, usually attributed to Dr. Nathan Azrin, a clinical psychologist who co-authored Job Club Counselor’s Manual: A Behavioral Approach to Vocational Counseling. Azrin’s manual provides instruction on how job seekers can work effectively in a group to assist one another with their job search campaigns.
IEEE-USA would like to expand this program — which has demonstrated success in helping members find employment — throughout the United States. Daryll Griffin, IEEE-USA’s Program Manager for Career and Innovation Activities, is available to help IEEE Sections with their efforts to start Employment Networks. For more information, please contact Mr. Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1 202 530 8337.
In addition IEEE-USA has also created a LinkedIn group for IEEE members wanting to network online and discuss employment related topics.
