11 Things to Leave Off Your Resume

21/03/2013 01:15 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs

New Survival Guide to Help Oil and Gas Families

18/03/2013 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
One of the most challenging things about working in the resources industry is the extended separation of families. Let’s face it; no one goes to work on an oil rig in a major metropolitan city. Processing plants are not usually placed in suburban neighbourhoods. If someone in your family is working a FIFO roster, the folks from Mining Family Matters have just produced a new guidebook giving great advice and practical tips to help families cope with the special challenges faced by oil and gas industry employees.




How to Follow Up in Your Job Search

15/03/2013 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
One of the universal questions we hear from jobseekers is, “How long should I wait before I follow-up on a job application.” Get it right, and you’re on your way to an interview. Get it wrong, and you’ll never get to the next step in the hiring process.
Of course, employers are not going to have any update for you until after the closing date for the position. If you contact them before this time, you’re just pestering them.

A recent article in the West Australian newspaper provided shocking statistics about higher education graduates.
