Engineering e-mail address stands out
Engineers can register an e-mail account under a unique name at engineering.com.
www.engineering.com has announced the launch of its newest service called Engineering Mail , an e-mail service for registered members. The service has been in prerelease testing with more than 1,000 existing members for several weeks. The company is now making the service available to all engineers, engineering students, and other members of the engineering community.
The new service provides two things that the big players such as Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft's Hotmail cannot. The www.engineering.com domain name identifies the member as belonging to the worldwide engineering community. This is particularly important to students and experienced engineers when looking for a new job, or in other instances when a professional presentation is required. The advantage over the big players is that members can find an e-mail address under his own name. This allows people with popular names, such as John Smith, to register an account without using underscores, additional characters, or even numbers.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
