22/10/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
With so much construction going on in the Australia resources industry – and many new projects under development – the pre-start meeting held at the start of every shift might be the most important part of your day.

Is Gobbledygook Getting in the Way of Your Job Search?

19/10/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Do you know gobbledygook when you see it? If you’re trying to make a good impression with future employers, it’s a good idea to get familiar with the most commonly overused phrases and jargon. Why?

18/10/2012 05:00 AM / Sarah Mitchell, Director, Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Anyone that’s put in more than one swing knows the time ‘off roster’ is not a holiday. While your network at home may view it this way, most FIFO workers return from a shift feeling fatigued and needing some down time. If you have a family waiting – especially one with young children – it can be a particularly difficult situation for everyone involved.

What Does Fair Work Australia Think About Your Facebook profile?

15/10/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald called “Like it or not, Facebook posts could cost your job” explains why employees and jobseekers need to be mindful of what they post in their personal networks and how it can impact their careers. It’s understandable when an employee is caught in a lie – like calling in sick so they could go to a party. But when is it okay for an employer to sack someone because of what they said in their private networks?





Reality Check: Entry-Level Mining Jobs

12/10/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Every day we have jobseekers contact us about how to get started in mining jobs or how to find the first job on an offshore rig. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult for people with no experience to break into mining or energy jobs. At the very least, you will need to have qualifications relevant to the resources industry along with proven experience. These jobs are very competitive and there’s a large pool of people with no skills or site experience who are competing with you for a handful of entry-level roles.

Skilled Workers Still in Demand in Australian Resources Industry

09/10/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
We’ve been getting a lot of questions in our social networks about the viability of the resources industry and how it impacts job availability. There’s a growing concern among jobseekers about the many negative stories in the press saying the boom is over. It would be easy to assume the industry is on the verge of collapse. Nothing could be further from the truth.
