ITT IEEE Student Branch Visited Comcast

ITT Student Branch at Comcast Head Office in SpokaneOn August 26, 2010 the ITT IEEE Student Branch along with IEEE members visited the Comcast Head Office in Spokane. It was a quite a learning experience! The Comcast staff not only prepared an outstanding presentation and a fascinating tour, food and gifts – they also made us feel welcomed.

We had great discussions about technologies and various human aspects of the work that service providers do on a daily basis.  It is possible that some of our students will be working for a service provider once they graduate from school. Now we all know now what it takes to deliver Internet/Video/Voice to our homes !

ITT Students Are Forming a New Branch

Hello, Everyone

The ITT students are forming a new student branch.

ITT IEEE Student Branch is at the first stage of its formation. We are looking for IEEE members who are willing to donate their time mentoring some on-going engineering projects at ITT and being  guest speakers.

Also ITT students are studying for A+, Network+ , Cisco exams. We are looking for individuals who had obtained those certifications and are willing to share the experiences on how to effectively prepare for the exams.

If you are interested in helping the IEEE Student Branch  - email Olga
Mill (omill@ieee.org) and Randy Douglass   ( rdouglass@itt-tech.edu ).

IEEE Virtual Career Fair

The IEEE Job Site is having a Virtual Career Fair from February 22, 2010 till March 22, 2010.  Head over to the website and check it out.  They have tremendous services to help IEEE Members find the career that best fits your skills and lifestyle.

IEEE Media Recruitment Services are the ultimate technical professional recruitment resource.

  • Employers can gain immediate access to over two million engineers, managers and business leaders in the technology marketplace by combining print and electronic advertising opportunities in IEEE Spectrum, IEEE Spectrum Online, and other IEEE publications and Web sites.
  • Hiring managers at more than 4,000 leading corporations and organizations in fields ranging from ASIC design to weapons system development to transportation use IEEE Recruitment Services – Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Agilent Technologies, AMI Semiconductor, Raytheon, General Electric Research, Google, just to name a few.
  • IEEE Members who post their profile and resumes on the IEEE Job Site receive an e-mail when an employer posts an opening that matches their requirements.  This service is available exclusively to IEEE Members.

IEEE Members who use the IEEE Job Site say:

“I found many openings I did not see on other job search engines.”
“It allows me to find jobs in my specific field of engineering.”

I have used the IEEE Job Site myself a few years ago when I was looking for a change in career paths.  For Electrical Engineers there isn’t a better site out there.  It is not cluttered with horrible descriptions and 1000s of irrelevant job postings like the other sites out there.
