Career Transitioning 101-Book 1: First Steps
Is there a professional who, at some point in their
career, has not sensed it is time to make a change?
Career transitioning is almost inevitable today-whether
it begins with feelings of stagnation in a current role or
company, changes in career goals or interests, or simply
an unplanned change in employment.
In fact, according to Dr. Robert Danielle, an expert
in professional and career development and career
transitioning, a person will change jobs an average of
12 times.
" The January 2018 report from the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics observed that many workers spend five
years or less in every job, " Danielle says. " It means they
devote more time and energy transitioning from one
job to another, and because of the economic impact
of the COVID-19 pandemic, those numbers could be
even higher. "
Danielle is a consultant, whose work also includes
leading large, successful change initiatives and
improving individual and team performances. He has
just written Career Transitioning 101-Book 1: First
Steps, the first volume in this timely, new e-book series
from IEEE-USA. IEEE-USA has introduced the e-book
this month at no charge to members and for $2.99 to
non-members. Go to https://ieeeusa.org/shop.

THE BRIDGE

Idea to Product:
A Research Pathway
for Students
A purely random assignment
to write a very simple
program calculating simple
interest, from a then-high
school IT instructor triggered
a breakthrough for author
Ramneek Kalra. Kalra began
thinking from the perspective of a customer/user. He
also found a new passion-inspiring other students to
understand the process of transforming an idea into
a product.
Now a project engineer at Wipro Limited in New Delhi,
India, this IEEE Member has written the IEEE-USA
E-Book, Idea to Product-A Research Pathway
for Students.
" I feel it is very important for students around the
world, studying in secondary schools and universities, to
understand the process of transforming an idea into a
product, " he writes.
Kalra sees the development of this concept as five
specific phases:
1. D
 etermining the problem, then developing problem
statements and solutions
2. Choosing the right team and the right technology
3. Conducting in-depth research and a literature survey
4. Developing the prototype
5. Securing intellectual property rights
IEEE-USA is offering the book, Idea to Product: A
Research Pathway for Students, at no charge to
members and $2.99 to non-members at: https://

Women in Engineering-Book 23: From
Semiconductor Physics to Sales & Marketing:
My Perfect Career Path
Liang Xi Downey didn't see the inside of a classroom
until she was almost 10. Born in 1965 - just as China's
Cultural Revolution was starting - she was one of
multitudes of children prohibited from starting their
learning when China's leaders forced the country's
schools and universities to close.
After the Cultural Revolution ended in 1976, relatives
took her to Beijing. With the support of family and
teachers, she persevered and excelled in her studies.
Ultimately, despite her late start in a classroom, Downey
graduated from the prestigious Tsinghua University with
a degree in microelectronics.
Today, her 30-year career spans not only electrical
engineering but also sales, marketing and business

development. Downey is an IEEE Senior Member and
a business strategist for DTE Energy, a Detroit, MIbased energy company. Using AI and other advanced
technologies, Downey leads cross-functional teams to
investigate, analyze and recommend current strategic
and operational issues.
Her remarkable autobiography, Women in Engineering
-Book 23: From Semiconductor Physics to Sales &
Marketing: My Perfect Career Path, is the subject of the
latest volume in the award-winning IEEE-USA Women
in Engineering (WIE) e-book series.
