The IET has launched a new scheme to help engineers during the early stages of their career.
IET Career Advantage is a three-year membership package which is designed to give individuals more direction, particularly with a view to increasing their knowledge and experience. It makes available the tools and resources to help young engineers acquire the essential skills of a professional, while also providing essential engineering intelligence and the support of a worldwide community of peers.
Following the launch of the IET’s Graduate Advantage initiative in 2011, which helps engineering graduates bridge the gap between university and the working world, IET Career Advantage is the second step in a wider, three-stage programme (IET Advantage). It is designed to assist young engineers in their career development and towards achieving Professional Registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer (CEng/IEng).
"The IET is committed to supporting recently qualified engineers with their career development," said Michelle Richmond, director of membership and professional development at the IET. “The launch of IET Career Advantage will give a range of resources to our members to ensure they have a competitive edge in shaping their future and that of the engineering profession around the world.”
The scheme is open to all engineering graduates in the first three years of their career.
