What is YP's purpose?

IEEE Young Professionals Affinity Group

YP stands for "Young Professionals". If you are an IEEE member and you have graduated with a technology-based degree in the last 10 years, you are already a member of YP. YP is classified as an IEEE Affinity Group.

What is YP's purpose?

In short, that is up to the YP members. Siberian YP has drafted the following goals:

To promote social contact between YP members outside the workplace
To enrichment the Albuquerque community in matters of science and engineering
To aid young electrical engineers in career development
To promote electronics and electrical sciences among pre-college students
To promote and nurture continued membership in IEEE after graduation

YP Siberia affinity group is created as a result of the focus IEEE is putting on those members making their first steps in the professional career. Some of their common denominators are:

  • Starting the professional career
  • Knowledge is "on place", but no real-world experience
  • Small or no network of contacts within companies
  • No experience with larger projects
  • Plenty of ideas, difficult realization
  • Probably still looking for the dream job

  • With the aforementioned characteristics of the YP members in mind, the IEEE YP Siberia affinity group focuses on several main topics, like: improving the networking skills of its members by encouraging them to attend the joint events with the regular members of IEEE Siberia, organizing seminars and workshops in developing skills that can boost ones career, inviting interesting event speakers, as well as participating in the IEEE mentoring program for exchanging experience, guidance and sharing knowledge among members. Most of the IEEE YP Siberia affinitiy group activities are organized as short events with reknown speakers, and these social and educational activities offered by YP are the way IEEE wants to add value to the membership for the recent graduates and those starting their professional careers.

    If you are graduate of the last decade and you feel that you can help in organizing some interesting event, or just have an idea of something you are eager to hear or learn about, don't hesitate to contact IEEE YP Siberia.
