The Australian gold production was steady for the March quarter of 2009 and expected to rise in the next coming months. Compared to this time last year, there is a 3% increase in production and those Companies making a positive impact on these figures are listed below. We've added in the links to their Careers Page, or Home Page (in the absence of the careers options on their website).

Engineering company Monadelphous Group Ltd has won a $170 million contract for major works associated with Woodside Petroleum Ltd's $12 billion Pluto liquefied natural gas project in Western Australia.
"Project works will begin immediately, with completion scheduled for the second quarter of calendar 2010," Monadelphous said in a statement last Thursday.
A few years ago, I was fortunate to be living in the US for a year and had an opportunity to see some of the country in our time there. One of the most amazing memories was visiting Hoover Dam and learning about the history of the project and some of the incredible challenges that were overcome to complete it. As one of Bechtel's signature projects back in the 1930's, they have enjoyed continued success in engineering, construction and project management and there is no surprise that some of the newly awarded or commenced contracts would be some of the most interesting opport
Back in April, United Group Limited announced they had secured a $230million contract at Pluto LNG Project to carry out construction - installing major process modules and fabricate and install interconnecting structural steel and pipe-work for the LNG train at Pluto.

"I've always been a great communicator - if I can get in front of people, I'll go well."
"I haven't had to interview for a long time, but I've always done well in them in the past."
"I've interviewed a lot of candidates - I don't need interview coaching."
Do any of these sound familiar? If you answered yes, you're not alone - many people think this way, and 10 years ago the chances are you would have been right. But the Human Resources industry has changed. Never before have selection systems been so process-driven. Interviews today are rarely an informal meeting to get a ‘feel' for the candidate. In fact modern systems have been specifically designed to ensure that charm, charisma and communication skills don't sway the interviewer's decision.
