SPE Vietnam Section
In 28th Oct '17, SPE Vietnam, in conjunction with HCMUS SPE SC, organized a technical talk by Mr. Pham Van Vinh, Lead Drilling Engineer of Phu Quoc POC with the following topics:
Topic #1: A lucky career path story in drilling operation
Topic #2: The drilling rigs and their application in oil and gas industry
This event is a sequel to another technical sharing by Mr. Vinh at Bach Khoa University in 9th September '17, following by another sharing coming soon at PetroVietnam University.
During this talk, Mr. Vinh shared with HCMUS students about his career, the hardship he had to overcome in order to enter and succeed in Oil and Gas industry. According to him, apart from technical expertise, the key element for his career success is genuine attitude towards his work and its outcome. This attitude comes from one's willingness to learn and excel from hard work, and more importantly, sincerity. Additionally, another integral factor to his success is the ability to take advantages of opportunities when they arise.
Also, amidst the general industry downturn, he encouraged students and graduates to embrace persistence. Mr. Vinh has experienced 03 downturns in his careers; however, as our industry is cyclical, the storm will past. When it does, those who sail through it will get their rewards.
