ONLINE CAREER COACHING COMMUNITY FOR SUCCESS ORIENTED ENGINEERS
“ARE YOU READY TO BECOME AN INDISPENSABLE ENGINEER AND EARN THE INCOME YOU DESERVE?”
Dear Fellow Engineer:
Right now, as you’re reading this, engineers who are less talented than you are earning higher incomes and working on more exciting projects – as partners in a prestigious engineering firms.
And these engineers might even be younger than you.
In fact, I know an engineer who graduated from college at 22 and was a partner by age 27 … earning a high income as a partner and also enjoying a well balanced career.
As soon as this engineer became a partner, he stopped working long hours for low pay. He had more vacation time, more time for hobbies … plus, at the end of the year, he received a larger bonus taking him to a six-figure salary.
LET ME BE FRANK FOR A SECOND …
if you’re happy with working crazy hours for low pay doing something you are not crazy about then you don’t need to read this message.
BUT … if you’re ready to become an engineering leader and enjoy a totally different lifestyle – and a higher quality of work – then stay with me for the next few minutes. What you’re about to read can transform your engineering career – and your life.
“I have managed to re-steer the ship of my professional career.”
“Support and encouragement when I need it…”
“Making the Best Decisions in My Career”
First, let me detail …
THE MAJOR PROBLEM AMBITIOUS ENGINEERS FACE … AND HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM …
You went to engineering school … well … to become an engineer. You worked diligently to develop the skills to be an accomplished professional.
Here’s the problem with even the world’s most prestigious engineering schools: they never teach you how to manage your career.
You might gain the knowledge you need to design the next Golden Gate Bridge but when it comes to gaining the exact skills you need to move your career forward – you don’t get what you need.
LET ME GIVE YOU THE SECRET TO SUCCESS IN OUR PROFESSION
I’m Anthony Fasano, a fellow engineer. I received a B.S. and a M.S. in Civil Engineering from Lafayette College and Columbia University respectively.
Just after graduating from college, I went to work for an engineering firm. And because – like you – I’m ambitious, I quickly realized I had to gain a new set of skills to move my career forward.
I gained these skills and, at 27, I was a partner in an engineering firm.
I mention this not to boast, but to prove it’s possible – probable even – to reach the partnership level early in your career. Yes, you can toil away for 10-20 years hoping to become a partner … but why wait?
In a minute, I’m going to show you exactly how to achieve the same level of success. But there’s something interesting I recently uncovered …
ENGINEERS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND … MAKING IT EASIER TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL, EVEN A PARTNER AT A YOUNG AGE … PROVIDED YOU TAKE THE RIGHT STEPS …
According to a recent article in The Houston Chronicle, there’s strong demand for engineering talent right now. And engineering schools, especially in the United States, are producing fewer engineers.
Many “baby boomer” engineers are retiring or slowing down, meaning the demand for engineers is even higher.
It’s great news for ambitious engineers like you. Here’s why … to attract qualified engineers, firms are offering partnerships as a “carrot.”
However, you still need the skills to find these companies, present yourself in the best possible light, and understand how to negotiate contracts … in short … the skills you never receive at engineering school!
When you’re applying for jobs, targeting potential firms, or advancing in your current firm, you can negotiate a partnership – or the path to a partnership – as part of your compensation.
Instead of being overworked and underpaid, you gain all the benefits of a partnership … including a much higher salary, profit sharing, shorter hours …
and more …
WHAT I DISCOVERED WILL SHOCK YOU …
As soon as I became a practicing engineer, I discovered something that shocked me.
Moving up the “ladder” to a partnership has little to do with your engineering skills.
If you want to become a partner in an engineering firm, you MUST develop and understand how to manage your career.
Making the decision you WANT to become a partner is easy. But getting the training and knowledge can be difficult if you decide to go it alone.
You’ll have to spend hours reading books and watching videos. And if you’re already overworked … it’s difficult to make the time to “do your career homework.”
So I created a much easier way for ambitious engineers to gain the tools and skills to manage a career – and gain that high six-figure partnership.
The easier way?
Just some of the skills you must master …
How to network online and offline
Knowing which engineering skills to develop … and which ones are a waste of your time
Negotiating a contract
Marketing your skills
Developing and maintaining a social media presence (especially vital in today’s virtual environment)
Learning how to find the right firm for you or facilitate your advancement in your current firm.
Handling recruiters and head hunters
Creating a search engine friendly resume
Interviewing with prospective employers and clients
THE INSTITUTE FOR ENGINEERING CAREER DEVELOPMENT – FOR AMBITIOUS ENGINEERS ONLY …
After I became a partner at age 27, my partners asked me to help other engineers in the firm with career management. Soon after, I met other engineers who were extremely hungry for my advice and expertise.
So I created an online community just for ambitious engineers.
This evolved into the Institute for Engineering Career Development – also known as the IECD.
IECD also provides an affordable avenue for engineers to acquire career skills through personal coaching plus through a private password-protected online community of engineers.
The IECD is a community of like-minded and ambitious engineers with the drive and desire to enjoy all the benefits – financial and otherwise – of becoming a partner in a thriving and respected engineering firm.

Reach your full earning potential so you trade a low salary for a six-figure income.
Work fewer hours so you have more time for friends, family, and hobbies.
Pursue engineering projects you enjoy the most.
Join a firm in a geographic location that suits you.
As a member of the IECD family, you will get the support you need to become a partner – and a high paid one – with a solid firm.
Membership in IECD is…
THE GREATEST INVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER MAKE IN YOUR CAREER … AND YOUR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL HAPPINESS …
If you’re earning around $50,000 a year now … or perhaps slightly higher … then I’m extremely confident you can be earning two times that – perhaps more – in the next 12-24 months as a partner in a firm.
That’s a realistic goal for an engineer with 2-3 years of experience.
I have personally mentored, through IECD, engineers who have made the leap from around $50,000 a year to $100,000 a year … with the potential for even higher pay.
RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT
So let me ask you a question… what would you pay for the opportunity to increase your salary from $25,000 to $50,000 a year?
Any of these amounts would be a wise investment … based on the return.
So you’ll be happily surprised to discover you can join IECD for as little as 39 cents a day. That’s just $2.85 a week … the price of a large coffee at Starbucks.
And to make it even easier to join IECD – and to customize what we offer to your precise needs – we offer three affordable membership options.
A LINKEDIN PROFILE REVIEW … YOUR PROFILE IS YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ADVERTISEMENT
Decision makers at prestigious engineering firms and/or prospective clients are going to take a long look at your profile – and decide whether or not to contact you based on what they see.
So it’s VITAL your profile is up-to-date and “sells” you as a strong candidate for a partnership role.
When you select the “Yearly Plus” membership option, you receive a LinkedIn profile review from a social media expert … a $400 value that’s included in your membership.
You’ve heard from me … now meet members of the IECD community you will soon join …
CURRENT COMMUNITY MEMBERS FIND IECD EXTREMELY VALUABLE …
“I have managed to re-steer the ship of my professional career.”
“Joining the institute was one of the best investments I have ever made in my life and meeting Anthony was utterly rewarding at a personal level as well as in my professional career. Thanks to Anthony, I have managed to re-steer the ship of my professional career. Now that I am on the right track, I can proceed forward with serenity and confidence as I know Anthony will always be present in my professional career development.”
Ilias Gibigaye, E.I.T., Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
“Support and encouragement when I need it…”
“The Institute’s assortment of services, including the webinars (live and recorded), conference calls, and networking site, allow me to find support and encouragement when I need it and how I need it at the time. I love the regular flow of recommendations that are delivered with new topics in the monthly webinars, but also find comfort in knowing that Anthony and others on the network are only an email or phone call away if I need urgent support.”
“Anthony has helped me have more patience in my career. I used to want things to happen unrealistically fast, but now I can proceed toward my goals with confidence and patience because I know I’m heading in the right direction. Many facets of an engineering career take a lot of leg work, but suddenly fall into place over a short period of time. To someone else it may appear that I have gotten lucky. I can honestly say that Anthony has helped me to create my own luck by making the best decisions in my career.”
Robert Mora, P.E., PLS, New Orleans, Louisiana.
