New Australian Bureau of Statistics figures reveal 12,600 new mining jobs – or 21 per cent more workers – in the mining industry at the end of May 2012 than for the same period in 2011.

The report found that for the 12 months until March 2012, $21.7 billion in private investment was pumped into the mining sector, about two-and-a-half times more than the previous year.

Mines Minister Andrew Cripps said it was no time for the government to be complacent.

    I got a resume done up by iMINCO and it was the best thing I have done.
    I got a good job out of it, and the phone didn’t stop ringing.
    It’s well worth it

      Hi Brendan
      Mining is no different to getting a job in any other industry. You have to have the right attitude and do your research on the mining companies in Australia. The mining safety induction course is what you need to do first, then start to research mining jobs online. Once you have this organised, you need a good mining focused resume, which you can find info about on our website.
