If you have just started looking then there are lots of entry level mining jobs going on Hardrock gold, nickel, copper, zinc, lithium and other base metal mines all around Australia.
So how do you get entry level mining job experience?
First you have to work out what experience the employer is after.
The Hardrock underground mining employers are looking for people that know how their mine works. They want people that know what is going to be expected of them on site. That understand how hard its going to be. You can do this using either the DIY Intro to Underground Mining or Workready packages.
People that complete the training, who study hard and learn all the information. These people end up selling themselves to the employers. Using their newly learned mining knowledge in the interviews, these people get jobs. You can see this on our Wall of Fame page.
Lots of people get an instant response, for others it can take a little longer. Its not a magic bullet, you have to do the study. You have to apply for the jobs every day and you have to do the interview yourself. As much as we would like to, we can’t do the interview for you. It’s up to you to be able to answer the mining questions in the interview, that’s how blow the wind up the employers skirt and get a start.
