The twelfth and latest volume in the award-winning IEEE-USA Women in Engineering (WIE) e-book series — It’s Not a Career Path — It’s an Obstacle Course!, by Lisa Schoedel, cuts across her career path in three male-dominated industries: defense, oil and law. Schoedel readily admits that she did not carefully plan her vocation, stumbling upon earlier jobs with little thought or consideration. WIE Book 12 reflects the author’s pragmatism and sense of humor. Her work is brimming with anecdotes that explain why she made many of her career choices, and the lessons she learned along the way.
