Though I am now with Total, I still consider my time as a young professional (YP) working for Schlumberger as very pivotal in my professional life. During this period, I quickly appreciated the importance of hard work and the strong emphasis on being technically competent in my professional discipline. I also learned ethical behavior and the importance of cultivating strong professional integrity and respect in the workplace. I was exposed to all aspects of the business, from being responsible for performing technical jobs to sales and marketing and to keeping track of monthly revenue. As a young service-company professional, you become involved with all of this--always focusing on ensuring that the client is satisfied with the service you deliver.
