002: Karen Part 1: From Cleaner to Dump Truck Operator

Karen reached out for some help to get a job in the mines as a dump truck operator. In this episode we sit down for a chat about why she so desperately wants to work in the mining industry, steps taken so far and tips for others looking to do the same.

We also celebrate some good news as she has a start date! Now the fun begins. What can she expect, the next steps  and her thoughts on her dream coming to reality.
