IEEE-USA has invited Elizabeth Lions, Author, Human Resources Professional and Executive Career Coach, to discuss what people can do right now if they’ve lost their job due to this worldwide pandemic. Ms. Lions will give us tips on how to interview virtually, how to continue job searching now so you can find opportunities and still practice social distancing.

Our March 9 program (6.15pm at Rockfish Grill at Campbell/Coit) should be very interesting. Thanks to Steve Ruzic for finding our speaker who is from NPI Technologies in Richardson Texas.

Come on March 9 and meet other IEEE members and learn more about Contract Manufacturing.
