9 LOCAL IEEE SECTION & PACE NETWORK PRESENTATIONS
To assist unemployed or at-risk members, IEEE-USA has developed six sets of Power Point Slides with Speaker's notes to help local sections and PACE Chairs conduct meetings focusing on:

These slides were prepared by the IEEE-USA Employment & Career Services Committee in an effort to assist members in improving their resume and cover letter writing skills. The slides also were designed to better prepare your members for what they might expect while interviewing. These presentations explore: What REALLY matters, appearance, behavior, topics to avoid, questions to ask, salary negotiations and what to do after the interview. We hope these slides will help you to help your local section members in their job search and interviewing skills. We would like your feedback! Please contact Scott D. Grayson s.grayson@ieee.org with questions or comments.
