Vacation Work Challenge

The annual SPE Vacation Work Challenge (VWC) is an industry-sponsored initiative designed for students to experience the recruitment process in a competitive environment and potentially secure vacation work. Students are marked based on their Resume, Cover Letter and Assessment Centre performance. Feedback is also given to every student for each stage of of the recruitment process so that candidates can learn from their mistakes and build on their strengths.

Finalists from the group stage will be interviewed by HR representatives and if successful, awarded vacation work placements.

In 2016, the VWC was sponsored by WorleyParsons, DOF Subsea and Woodside. Three students were successful in gaining interviews with each company, and one candidate was successful in gaining vacation work from this event. The VWC was another great success in 2017, sponsored by INPEX and Add Energy and with WorleyParsons joining for another year.
