Woodside uses AOG to recruit new engineering talent

Woodside and the Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition (AOG) have developed an initiative to encourage secondary and tertiary students to enter the oil and gas industry, in the form of the AOG Careers Day to be held at AOG 2010 on 26 March.

AOG Careers Day is designed to communicate the career opportunities available in the oil and gas industry, through a combination of seminar presentations and face-to-face interaction between students and industry leaders, according to AOG organiser, Diversified Exhibitions.

AOG Careers Day will be held as part of AOG 2010 on 26 March at Perth Convention Exhibition Centre in Western Australia. The Careers Day will be supported by Woodside along with Curtin University, University of Western Australia, JP Kenny, Society for Underwater Technology and Engineers Australia, says Diversified Exhibitions.

According to Woodside’s resourcing and diversity manager, Ben Davis, the initiative provided an opportunity to not only talk to students about career opportunities in the oil and gas industry available at Woodside, but also identify potential candidates for the company’s own graduate and training programs.

“Securing and developing emerging talent is integral to our growth strategy as we construct our Pluto liquefied natural gas project and progress our Sunrise and Browse LNG developments,” he said.
