About the Career Pathways Fair

The Career Pathways Fair started as part of the 2015 SPE Offshore Europe Conference in Aberdeen, UK. The aim was to connect young aspiring engineers to speak to more experienced professionals about the realities and opportunities open to them. Booths were set up representing different roles across the industry. This allowed students and young professionals to ask questions and ensure they had the necessary skills to maximize available opportunities.

In 2019, the event also went virtual, with SPE’s first fully online conference. This opened up the same opportunities to a global audience, as well as being able to use the platform to bring together presentations, and further SPE resources has to support members’ development. This platform became a vital resource in the following years during the pandemic, and is now one of SPE’s most valuable young member programs.

This program is hosted collaboratively by the Student Development Committee and Young Professional Committee.
