The Mining Industry Is A Strange Beast.
Discussions about booms and busts, and world issues affecting the coal prices are always taking place. If you have no experience and are still trying to get that dream mining job as a dump truck operator you need to be ready when the “beast” is ready for you.
As operators we all go along for the ride. Up-sizing, down-sizing, job security and lifestyle choices are all affected by the decisions made by the Mining Companies we work for, or want to work for.
One thing is for sure, the black stuff is everywhere in Queensland and they need us operators to help get it out of the ground and onto the ships.
The world resources prices start to pick up again? Coal especially. The pits and machines that have been parked up will be cranked up again-real fast. Those machines all need operators. People like you and me.
All the mines currently awaiting approval get the go ahead. Some of these are huge, and will need thousands of workers. Where are they going to get all of the extra operators? The government is under a lot of pressure to ensure these mining companies don’t bring in overseas workers to fill the gaps.
They will need to hire a lot of new people (greenies, clean skins) as well as experienced operators, from their own backyards, us, you?

There is so much I want to share with you, like what to expect once you get a phone call for an interview. What about once you have a start date? What comes next? First day on the job, challenges that may arise and where help is available.
I struggled early on, and still do sometimes.
Mining is not as easy as many people think and some are cut out for it, and others are not.
If you would like to be notified of any cleanskin jobs I find, and have me help you on your journey into the mining industry, even if you have no experience I invite you to join my new POUNCE tribe. It is my passion to help others know what it’s really like, and to help as much as I can, in my own special Mad Mumzie style.
