Sub-Prime Crisis in US Appears to Benefit Australia’s Engineering, Construction and Mining Sectors

Subiaco, Australia, August 06, 2008 --( Traffic to leading Engineering Job Boards “Engineering Jobs Australia” and “Expat Engineer” are still experiencing phenomenal growth, with the majority of traffic emanating from the US and Australia.

“Traditionally web traffic to the “Engineering Jobs Australia” job board has come from Australia, India and UK, however India and UK have recently been overtaken by traffic from the USA which has increased by 188% over the last quarter. This seems to indicate that Engineers and Technical specialists in the USA are seriously considering a move to Australia, probably brought on by the subprime crisis which has decimated the US Engineering and Construction sectors”, stated John Kirkby, MD of the Group.

“By comparison, US traffic to the site only increased by 19% over the same period but still remains the leading source of traffic behind the UAE, India and the UK”

“July has traditionally been a slow month for us in terms of traffic and revenue, however, in terms of web traffic, July 2008 has been our best month ever with traffic to our nine niche job boards increasing by 26% to over 1 million page views and 321,000 unique visitors”

“Engineering Jobs Australia” and “” are two of five Engineering and Technical niche Job boards owned and operated by Perth based, Group. The group also includes Medical, Financial, Teaching and IT niche job boards.
