Writing For Sucess An Engineer's Guide — Volume 2 — The Road to Excellence
Good writing comes from hard, diligent work. Engineers understand what that means in their profession. In writing, that effort means giving our writing a close read, and testing it in every way. As in our engineering efforts, these tests are conducted to identify problems. And when problems are found, we must then develop effective solutions. With writing, these tests involve using our critical eye to detect any aspects of our writing that are unclear, wordy, vague, inaccurate, missing, or unneeded. We understand the purpose of our writing and read it, edit, rewrite and reread it, until we are sure it accomplishes that purpose as directly and effectively as possible.

Leading and Managing Engineering and Technology - Book 1 - Perspectives on Leading and Managing
The competencies needed to lead and manage continue to be misunderstood. As a society, we focus on leadership as demonstrated by politicians, industry executives and individual effort related to some major accomplishment. This book discusses managing and leading as related to technical professionals and their managers.

Writing For Success — An Engineer's Guide — Volume 1
This book is not a technical writing text. Its purpose is to serve as an inspiration and guide to help engineers approach their writing tasks with the same confidence and skill that they take to the technical problems that confront them so that emails, reports, test-plans, and other documents they write are as useful and successful and valued as their engineering efforts.

2010 IEEE-USA Unemployment Survey Report
The IEEE-USA Employment Assistance Committee has continued its interest in developing a better understanding of the problem of unemployment among older engineers by conducting a survey of unemployed engineers. This report of results is organized into four sections. The first section reports the percentage distribution or means response for each of the questions in the survey. The second section reports the results of selected cross tabulations that focus on age and various aspects of employment status. The third section reports the results of a multivariate analysis that focuses on the impact of age on the duration of unemployment, when other factors are held constant. The final section compares some of the current results to those in 1995, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008.

2010 Profile of IEEE Consultants
IEEE-USA has conducted surveys focusing on the compensation of consultants in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, and 2009. Other than 2009, these were standalone surveys, and they were not a part of the overall Salary & Fringe Benefits Surveys. In 2009, for the first time, the two survey efforts were combined. As a result, the sampling frame and qualifying definition of "consultant" were changed from previous implementations. And this year, the results were further filtered to those consultants who also indicated they were employed in their primary area of technical competence (PATC). Not only is the current definition different (consultants are now defined as primarily fee-based and self-employed full or part time and), but the PATC restriction does not apply this year either.

Technical Presentations Book 1: Strategy — Preparation and Planning
Engineers and scientists are frequently required to present technical information to a broad spectrum of individuals, including co-workers, executives and potential clients in a variety of formats, such as conference papers, training materials and funding proposals. Even if you do not present conference papers or other formal presentations, you must present your ideas and opinions daily, in a clear and concise manner. Without a strategy and appropriate preparation, a presentation will be unfocused, not apply, or fail completely. Book 1 of this four-book series outlines a framework to help you prepare for your next presentation.

2009 Profile of IEEE Consultants
As a consultant is preparing a proposal or negotiating a contract, one of the primary concerns is deciding how much to charge. To establish a fixed price or a fee that is both competitive and fair, the consultant needs to know what other consultants working in similar fields charge. In response to this need, the Alliance of IEEE Consultants Networks (AICN) conducts national fee surveys of its members. This 2009 Profile of IEEE Consultants provides the profile of typical self-employed and independent technical consultants, including their education, experience, business practices, median earnings and hourly fee.
