NEWS  |  OTC 2016: Sponsors Offer A Gateway to Career Advancement  |  Rigzone

 

As a general rule of thumb, in any business, relationships are vital – connecting with people and continuing to foster relationships as one progresses in their career can be significant as to how far a person goes in a company.

 

The bottom line: no worker can climb the ranks alone. Even the savviest of professionals had someone – whether they’re aware of it or not – who vouched for them and helped them become successful. While mentors will lend their time to guide workers in their career paths, a sponsor is the person who sticks their neck out for an employee they deem worthy of it. A sponsor is talking about a worker behind closed doors to the executives making the hiring decisions. A sponsor is an individual who is invaluable. 

 

Coming off the heels of a straightforward and spirited OTC panel discussion about the prevalence and need for more sponsorship of women in the energy sector, Pink Petro founder and CEO Katie Mehnert took a moment to continue the dialogue with Rigzone.
