Career Communications Group’s (CCG) Black Engineer magazine provides a front-row seat to developing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) all year round. But a new publication from CCG’s Foundation for Educational Development, Inc. (FEDI) features stories that teach students how to build a career plan step by step.
One of the nation’s largest STEM foundations, FEDI says a career guide is an important tool for use in classrooms and community STEM programs.
Becoming an Engineer: A Practical and Creative Guide to Planning a Career in Engineering was launched at CCG’s 24th Annual Women of Color magazine’s STEM Conference in Detroit and those who attended were lucky to receive the first copies from CCG’s managing editor Ray Kennedy.
The new Becoming an Engineer publication is designed to introduce young readers to the exciting world of engineering. The information on these creative pages provides the best answers to everything they need to know–ranging from industry descriptions to educational paths and salary.
“Any STEM conversation with young people should start with one question: What is engineering? This practical career guide has real-life stories to inspire young people as they plan their engineering future. That is what Becoming an Engineer is all about,” said CCG publisher and CEO Tyrone Taborn.
“We created this publication to help mentors have a meaningful conversation with young people on how to become a scientist or engineer, and encourage our professionals, mentors, and organizations to use this guide as they reach out to our youth throughout the year,” Taborn said in a statement.
