SPE eMentoring Stories
Read how our members are building their careers and benefitting from joining the SPE eMentoring program as both mentors and mentees.
Jorge Luis Proaño Suárez, Petroleum Engineering Student, Mentee
"My mentors have become my friends. They still give me advice and are sources that I can look to for information."
Dinesh Shivananthan, Petroleum Production Engineer, Mentor
"For many mentees—especially students—you, as a mentor, may be their main portal into the world of professional petroleum engineers. Be prepared to share your experiences, achievements, and hardships with them."
Luis Enrique Valencia, Development Geologist, Mentor and Mentee
"My transition from mentee to mentor in the program was natural—to retribute to SPE the good advice provided to me by my mentors, and to encourage students to keep working hard for their dreams."

Kai C. Eberspaecher, Senior Associate, Mentor
"I was inspired, by commitment and service of very experienced senior colleagues in the oil and gas industry, to unleash my passion to serve SPE in different capacities."
Fábio Terzini, PHD Student, Mentee
"A good mentoring connection, from my perspective, is achieved when both sides are willing to share experiences and set goals, and when the mentee puts the advice into practice."
