Guidebook for Engineering Newcomers to the United States of America With a Word to Employers.
Berggren, Willard P.
This guidebook is intended to assist engineers and applied scientists who have recently entered the United States to accept professional employment or to undertake graduate study. It is not intended to encourage professional people to leave the country in which they now practice, but rather to welcome and advise engineers who have already made this decision. The book has five main chapters and an appendix. Chapter one discusses professional opportunities and recognition. Chapter two discusses the area of working conditions and the problems of professional adjustment. Chapter three is entitled "You and Your Family in a United States Community." Chapter four answers legal and welfare questions. Chapter five is entitled "A Word to Employers." Included in the appendix is information on salaries, professional societies, vocabulary and slang, conversion units, and other information. (BC)
