Career Success in Engineering
A Guide for Students and New ProfessionalsBook - 2007
Today's time-pressed college engineering instructors have little time to discuss the real-world matters of employment, on-the-job performance, project management, leadership, ethics, and licensure that provide students with needed preparation for their professional futures. Years ago, employers or unions provided this information but today, career planning and development are left up to the individual. Students and new professionals may be at a disadvantage as they try to link their theory-based education with an application-based practice. Authors Bernard R. Berson and Douglas E. Benner share a common vision for nurturing young engineers and addressing this shortcoming. Drawing on the authors' own experiences, as well as those of other engineering industry leaders, Career Success in Engineering covers critical issues for current and recently graduated engineering students. Learn how to: Manage your career with goal setting, short- and long-range planning, continuing education, and professional development. Develop and present your ideas, work as part of a team, and manage a project. Select and use professional, mentors. Reap maximum benefits from professional association memberships, licensure, and networking. Book jacket.
