The first ten years after graduation from university can be challenging for young professionals.  Employment searches, new jobs,  professional development, life status changes are common experiences for many recent graduates.  Going through these challenges can be daunting but IEEE members never have to go through these experiences alone or uninformed.  
IEEE Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) was created in 1996 as a membership program to help students transition to young professionals within the larger IEEE community.   IEEE's young professionals are automatically added to the GOLD member community as they graduate.    
IEEE GOLD is a vibrant community of engineers, scientists, and technical experts that cross IEEE, with representation across the globe and throughout IEEE societies.
