Australian Job Fair in Houston, Texas Popular with Skilled American Workers

The Australian Job Fair, set in Houston, Texas to invite skilled American gas, oil, mining and construction workers to meet Australian recruiters, has met its enrollment target for attendees, reports

"Skilled workers from throughout Texas and adjoining southern states have sent us their details and those who 'have the goods' have received an email from the department with an invitation to attend the job fair. We've had to cut off online expressions of interest as it approached 3000 because we are limiting each session to ensure each applicant and all of the recruiters have quality time with each other," [Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship] spokesman Sandi Logan said.
