Article leads to work
A STORY that ran in The Gympie Times helped a business urgently fill two vacancies and find work for two jobseekers in their chosen fields.
NRG Drilling was left in the lurch last week when two employees quit exploration operations at Rollestone Mine.
The Gympie-based mining company had already put them through the Certificate II in Drilling and were looking at a lengthy process to replace them with skilled workers.
That's when NRG's Nathan and Rebecca Griffiths spotted The Gympie Times article about a number of jobseekers graduating from a Certificate III in Drilling.
Rebecca was able to peruse resumes with the course's co-ordinator Kerry Fullarton and picked two new employees on the spot.
Brian Chivers and Robert Bell will take up positions as driller's offsiders next week in NRG's coal exploration operations.
