  • looking for any work possible, long term job opportunity thanks… where is best place to send my resume? not much mining experience but plenty in construction and water boring… fast learner and get along with everyone…

    • Hi Timothy, Others who have responded to similar questions suggest registering with labour hire companies to get a foot in the door. Once you have some experience under your belt you can apply directly to work for the mining companies. Rio Tinto and BHP is doing a major recruitment drive for short-term work (check our previous articles on mining giant hiring sprees). Good luck!
