The Young Railway Professionals (YRP) has launched a brand new website with a social network at its heart.
www.youngrailwayprofessionals. org – took its inspiration from social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook. The idea is to bring young people together from all over the rail industry creating a professional online community. Members can create their own profiles, link with colleagues and friends and post news and updates.
Says Paul Cooper, Chairman of the Young Railway Professionals, ‘I’m really pleased to announce the launch of a new home of the Young Railway Professionals. We will shortly be entering our fourth year and, as our organisation has grown, we have been looking at ways of better meeting the needs of young people in our industry.
‘We have invested in the creation of a bespoke website, designed to provide young people with access to a calendar of networking events in the industry, as well as the YRP online networking community where our members can create their own profiles and begin to connect with peers from around the world.’
