The recruitment challenge

The Recruitment Challenge, proudly supported by BHP Billiton, tests candidates' abilities in a mock job application. The challenge consists of three parts, based on the different stages of the application process that most large engineering firms use.

The Challenge opens with a cover letter and resume submission followed by a face-to-face interview and an assessment centre. Students will receive feedback throughout all three stages of the competition, providing invaluable experience and feedback on their performance in the job application process.

Finalists, being the top five from each division in terms of performance, have the chance to be interviewed by the BHP Billiton Recruitment Team at the BHP Billiton Offices. Finalists will receive BHP Billiton branded merchandise, with the top three from each division winning prize money!

Note: Winners of The Recruitment Challenge are NOT recruited as a direct consequence of the Challenge. The main outcome of the Challenge is to provide relevant industry experience with regards to applying for jobs.
