Professional development is a key theme across many of the IET events taking place this month in the UK and beyond.
For those soon to be job hunting, as well as apprentices and graduates in the first few years of their career, many of May's IET events can help you gain skills to support your career.
Numerous courses and workshops are available, the majority of which are free of charge, giving you the chance to find out more about professional registration, perfecting your CV or perhaps getting the basics of management under your belt. Plus some of the IET's networks are hosting seminars on careers in specific engineering or technology sectors including power and telecoms.
There are also some interesting technical visits on offer providing you with great networking opportunities, in addition to more local heats in the IET's presentation competition, Present Around the World.
And for apprentices and technicians looking for that something extra to help them stand out from the crowd, be sure to apply for the IET Apprentice and Technician of theYear Awards before the entry deadline on 29 May.
