Additional resources

  • read the monthly mining magazines like Mining Chronicle, Industry Hub and Mining Monthly
  • create some Google Alerts for “mining jobs”
  • search Google, Yahoo and Bing for “mining jobs”
  • be exact about the type of mining job you are searching for and make your online search targeted to the job, i.e. “electrician mining jobs moranbah”, or “diesel fitter FIFO Pilbara”
  • read the national newspapers like the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The West Australian (offline and online) for breaking news about mining company activities. This is a good opportunity to discover where the new mining projects are located and how and where to apply.
  • research the local newspapers in the areas where major mines are located. This is often a very good source of information because mining companies are very tightly connected to the local community in which they operate
  • take the time to drive out to a mining town, talk to the locals, drive around the local industrial estates and look for mining support companies, visit the local contractors in the area and get yourself known. Often there are jobs advertised in the smaller towns adjacent to a mine that never get advertised on the bigger mining jobs boards
  • get your resume up to scratch and make it mining focused. If you need some mining resume tips, iMINCO has plenty of them here on this website – plus for a small investment in your mining future, get a professional mining-specific resume written for you and keep copies on-hand at all times, because you never know who you’ll meet.

      Hi Veronica
      It’s never a walk-in-the-park to get into the mines these days, let’s be clear about this. A lot of people do however find entry level mining jobs through word-of-mouth or through friends or family who know someone who works in the mines. Best advice I can offer you Veronica is to start to learn about the industry and find out who the main contracting companies are who supply cleaning services to the mines. This is your first priority – build your knowledge and be proactive.

      View a list of catering and utility companies for mine site operations in Australia. This will give you some ideas on how and where to start. Also, download the ebook that shows you how to get entry level mining jobs… it’s free and it contains a lot of good information on how to break into mining, even if you have no experience in the industry.
