Following a co-op assignment while still in school, I later joined Air Products and became a participant in its Career Development Program.
Over three years, I gained work experience in various functional roles and process technologies while developing professional skills and fulfilling early career objectives. During one of my first assignments, I was given the opportunity to manage a project to reduce argon losses at one of our air separation plants. It seemed like a major responsibility, but fostering growth and development of its employees regardless of experience level is a characteristic of Air Products. The project resulted in significant financial savings for the plant. I developed essential skills, and the company benefited from decreased losses.
