YPAC Advisor and Co-Founder Tran Mah-Paulson, who recently won a YPP Achievement Award, chatted to Pipelines International about his journey as a young pipeliner
In his interview, Tran explains that strong peer networks were fundamental in creating success for him.
“By getting involved with these groups [YPAC/YPP], both as a member and in a leadership role, young professionals have the opportunity to increase their network on a global scale”
The ability for young people to gain valuable technical skills through industry associations is reinforced through relationship building that is authentic.
“Members are able to build strong relationships beyond those that are purely transactional, forming a network of peers and friends”
