Your Career Starts Here


There are an almost infinite number of careers related to working within the Mining Cycle. Many of these jobs will take you to far off places in Canada and the world, requiring that you learn a second or third language and perhaps work with people of vastly different cultures and customs. We hope you have prepared yourself for that challenge. We hope you have broadened your educational experience, by stepping outside of your main discipline, by making yourself more marketable. Maybe you have taken a second language, completed a minor or certificate course in Occupational Health and Safety or Aboriginal relations, maybe you are ready.   You might want to come back once you have some work experience and chose to enroll in our executive Mining MBA program or executive Masters in Mineral Exploration. Learning should be a life-long experience, and you are always welcome to continue that experience with us at the Goodman School of Mines. The Job Source page should help in your search for a career or a summer job.
