We pay special tribute to IEEE Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) members (now IEEE Young Professionals), recently graduated IEEE volunteers working at local, regional, and global levels of IEEE. These IEEE volunteers play an important role in helping new graduates make the difficult transition to young professionals. We’re especially thankful for GOLD volunteers like Caroline Chan, GOLD IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (GOLD EMC) representative, who work with IEEE societies to bring special GOLD sessions to IEEE society events.
Ms. Chan and fellow GOLD EMC members organized some fun and educational activities at the recent IEEE EMC Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, geared at helping recently graduated students in the field of EMC expand their professional horizons. A special GOLD session took place at the conference in which GOLD members saw presentations on how to write a technical paper and establish a career in the field of electromagnetic compatibility. Afterwards they got to unwind by participating in a raffle for a free Kindle and attend a social bowling night.
When you become a GOLD (now IEEE Young Professionals) member, not only do you enjoy opportunities to expand your technical knowledge and professional network, you also get to join colleagues in fun activities. Hiking, laser tag, bowling, and barbeques are just a few examples. Interested in learning more about IEEE GOLD (now IEEE Young Professionals) programs or joining a GOLD program in your society?
