With the launch of the redesigned, device-friendly website, SPE young professionals’ magazine, The Way Ahead (TWA), is now an online-only publication and can be found at www.spe.org/twa. The old website, which held pdfs of articles from the print issues, has been updated to a web-friendly format and adapts to desktop, tablet, or mobile reading.
Moving away from the individual issue model, the TWA website will feature new content regularly under its traditional departments and will also be grouped under broad topics such as Business, Career, and Technology. Social media and email options are provided with each article for easy sharing, and a monthly email newsletter delivering the latest updates from the website will be sent to readers.
Launched in 2005, TWA is produced by SPE young professional volunteers who make up the TWA Editorial Committee. They write the articles or solicit them from industry leaders on topics that are of interest to young professionals, such as career development, emerging technologies, mentoring, and university-to-industry transition.
