Young Professionals

IEEE Young Professionals is an international community of enthusiastic, dynamic, and innovative members and volunteers. IEEE is committed to helping young professionals evaluate their career goals, polish their professional image, and create the building blocks of a lifelong and diverse professional network.

Young professionals have a wide variety of member benefits and opportunities available to them through IEEE membership. These member benefits are intended to help young professionals grow professionally, enhance technical knowledge, and become involved in community.

IEEE Young Professional member benefits and opportunities for career enhancement include webinars, mentoring, networking, GOLDRush Newsletter, IEEE JobSite, volunteer leader development, and participation in IEEE’s Public Visibility Initiative.

If you are within approximately 10 years since you began your career, you are already a member of the Young Professionals.  Unfortunately, our Section does not have a formal organization (an “Affinity Group”),as most Sections do, to plan events to help you with you career.  We would like to form such a group.

If you are interested in participating in a group to help you further you career, please contact our Section Chairperson,  Fred Orland  (
