02/01/2013 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Job scams are rife in the resources industry with new varieties cropping up every day. Just before the Christmas break, we discovered an outfit attempting to run a job scam on the Mining Oil and Gas Jobs site.

The Hard Part About Holiday Rosters and the FIFO Life

17/12/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Did you hear about the warning not to call in sick during the holidays issued to FIFO workers in the Pilbara last week? The news was widely reported in industry publications and mainstream media.
