  • Author Amy K. Jones offers interesting anecdotes regarding her personal experiences as a woman in engineering. Some are stories of what she did well; others, she hopes, will demonstrate where she failed, and perhaps inspire others to act differently. Despite all the cringe-worthy moments, Jones believes her failures are the most vital to include. Successes feel intimidating, she writes, and it?s hard to accurately express how much hard work and luck go into them. In contrast, failure is a pathway to learning. Jones hopes her e-book inspires you to perform a bit of self-reflection; makes you laugh; and gives you a little of that special feeling one experiences when enjoying a glass of red wine--with a friend who really gets you.

Separate surveys focusing on the compensation of consultants were implemented in 2002, and with the exception of 2003, have been conducted annually ever since. All findings in this report represent only those participants who were identified as self-employed consultants--defined as the 632 individuals who indicated that 50% or more of their consulting hours came from working independently, with partners, or incorporated. This report provides the profile of typical, self-employed and independent technical consultants, including their education, experience, business practices, median earnings and hourly fee. The fee data this report provides will help you set an hourly rate that is competitive with your peers. Member: $29.95 Non-Member: $49.95
  • The first four of IEEE-USA's award-winning Women in Engineering E-Books are now available in a specially priced first compilation volume. Introduced in 2014, the WIE e-book series has a distinct purpose: to help narrow the gender gap between the numbers of men and women in engineering, by providing the stories of female role models at various phases of their careers. Except for the first volume, which is an overview of women in STEM occupations, each book is a first-hand account of how a notable contemporary woman engineer built her career.

  • Through 15 April, IEEE members can download a free copy of this eBook by adding it to your cart and using promo code MARFREE18 at checkout. In Book 5 of IEEE-USA's Women in Engineering E-Book Series, author Melissa Lau's story isn't about grand inventions that will bring about the next Industrial Revolution. It doesn't even have a science award for your usual World-Saving Development or Life-Changing Design. Rather her story points to the little triumphs in an engineer's life that make the journey worth the time, the effort and the wanderings that get us there. There is no fanfare or prestige, and barely anyone understands what engineers talk about at a cocktail party (for those of us brave enough to be found in one). But an ordinary life can be just as remarkable. Member: $0.00 Non-Member: $9.99
