IEEE-USA's WEB EMPLOYMENT SERVICES OFFERED WORLDWIDE

IEEE-USA's benchmark Web-based employment services are being made available and promoted to IEEE members worldwide, IEEE-USA President Paul Kostek announced at the 1999 IEEE Sections Congress on Oct. 10 in Minneapolis. A new global employment services Web page describes how job seekers and employers outside the United States can avail themselves of the organization's Job Listing Service, Resume Referral service and consultants database.

The site, located at www.ieeeusa.org/employment/global, also contains an invitation for non-U.S. regions and sections to contact IEEE-USA for assistance in promoting these services to their members.

In addition, IEEE-USA is offering a special discount on its *Consultants Directory* database to e-zine subscribers. Electrical, electronics, software and management consultants can obtain listings through April 2000 for $25, half the original price.

To take advantage of the offer, go to www.ieeeusa-consultants.org/submissions/submit.html/.

With hundreds of consultants and their services arranged alphabetically, by state and category, the *Directory* can be viewed on the Web at www.ieeeusa-consultants.org/directory/search.html. It is also available free of charge in hard copy through IEEE-USA's Marnie Clarke, m.clark@ieee.org.

EXCLUSIVE *TODAY'S ENGINEER* PREVIEW:
FROM INTERNET FUTURES TO BALANCING HOME, WORK

Providing the guest editorial in this forthcoming issue, Dr. Vinton G. Cerf one of the pioneers of today's Net, predicts some one-billion devices could be connected in three years.

Other articles in the fourth-quarter issue cover how the Net has transformed the way engineers communicate with members of their project teams, look for jobs and interact with suppliers; Web-based education; our ability to negotiate boundaries between home and work; the professional dilemma of cost cutting by higher ups putting a project at risk for violating laws; as well as an interview with the recently installed president of Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology, Anne Armstrong.

To see the current issue and to order a subscription (four quarterly issues at $19.95), go to www.todaysengineer.org.

National Engineers Week : "A Unique Opportunity"
 Y2K NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK SET FOR FEB. 20-26

What better way to kick off the 21st Century than a week devoted to turning ideas into reality? National Engineers Week, February 20-26, 2000, is a coordinated effort by IEEE-USA, major companies, engineering societies, schools and students to focus on the role of engineering and its contributions to our quality of life.

For the 2000 program, National Engineers Week offers a free planning kit, with tips for sponsoring local activities and events, including an impressive National Engineers Week 2000 Poster. In addition, the kit describes the Week's program, including: Discover "E" which will send tens of thousands of engineers into the nation's schools; and "Engineering Goes Public," which brings engineers and technology to libraries, science centers and shopping malls.

New for Y2K, on Feb. 22, the National Academy of Engineering will name the greatest engineering achievements of the last century, based on a year-long survey of engineering societies.
 
For more information about National Engineers Week programs or for kits, see the National Engineers Week Web site at www.eweek.org.
