IEEE-USA's Free eBook Offers InSight on Licensing for Software Engineers
Licensing Software Engineers
"Being a licensed professional software engineer is an important credential, and even if not required for the work you do, it can distinguish you from other professionals, and unlock job opportunities," writes Dr. Phillip A. Laplante, CSDP, P.E.

As you make your list of resolutions for the New Year, resolve to download your free e-book: The Best of IEEE-USA InSight: On Licensing Software Engineers.

Laplante compiled this collection of 10 useful articles appearing in IEEE-USA InSight the past few years. The book examines the question of whether software engineers should be licensed in the United States. A hotly debated topic for more than 20 years, the controversy largely ended in 2013, when 30 states began offering licensure for software engineers.

Through 15 February, IEEE members can get a free download of this eBook. Log in with your IEEE Account, add the book to your cart, and use promo code JANFREE17 at checkout.

IEEE Mentoring Program
Are you an experienced professional in the field of engineering looking to share your knowledge and experience? Are you in need of advice, seeking guidance on starting your career, planning a career change, or building technical skills? The IEEE Mentoring Program (formerly IEEE MentorCentre) is a partnering experience matching mentors and mentees.

Getting Started
The program is available to all IEEE members and Society Affiliates. Both mentors and mentees can participate in the program by visiting IEEE Collabratec™. Mentors should select "Opportunities" from the menu and opt in from the "Settings" tab. Mentees can find a mentor by selecting "People" from the menu, and use the available filters to narrow your search.

Fostering a Productive Relationship
Once a mentorship match is made, the pair should set goals for the relationship. The partners are encouraged to work together on a plan to accomplish these goals and develop a timeline for them. It is also important for the pair to agree up front on the amount of time and commitment each person should expect from each other. More tips for a successful mentoring partnership can be found in the Getting Started Guide.

Thank you to the charter sponsors of IEEE Collabratec.
