Youth & Careers

PORGERA Joint Venture (PJV) recently participated in the Papua New Guinea University of Technology (Unitech) careers fair to market PJV as an ideal employer for top graduates in key technical fields.
PJV was among 20 companies that participated in the fair from Aug 24-25 at the Unitech campus in Lae, Morobe.
PJV’s participation was facilitated by the employee development section led by superintendent talent management Basil Tabel and Adviser Rachael Lepokon.
They were assisted by mine underground senior engineer Gregory Oa, reliability senior supervisor Ian Kaison and processing metallurgist person Leki, who provided students with information in their technical fields of work.
“Papua New Guinea needs to remain competitive in the industry to attract highly qualified employees and such events provided the opportunity to inform students on what PJV was able to offer as an employer,” Tabel said.
The theme for the career fair was ‘Promoting Unitech-industry partnerships for entrepreneurial and innovative human resource for nation building.’.
Unitech Chancellor Jean Kekedo said the fair not only provided an opportunity for industry partners to show students the different career pathways available, but also for students to show the industry that they were innovative thinkers.
Other resource companies that participated included Ok Tedi Mining Limited (OTML), Newcrest Mining Limited (Lihir), Wafi-Golpu Joint Venture, ExxonMobil and Kumul Petroleum Holdings.
