This month why not work on your soft skills, attend a technical seminar or head out to one of the many site visits taking place all over the world!
February is packed with a great selection of events of interest to young engineers including lifeskills workshops and technical lectures and seminars. Many of these have been arranged by IET Young Professionals groups, meaning they’re great opportunities to meet with like-minded people.
For those who want to polish their public speaking skills (and also win some money!), why don’t you check out the IET’s Present around the World competition as there’s still time to enter, with local heats taking place throughout the month.
There’s also a real international feel this month, with technical visits taking place around the world, including Canada, Sri Lanka, Australia and China.
