The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) Canberra Student Chapter hosted the annual Students Meet Industry Night on Wednesday the 26th of April. The night was a great success with Geoscience Australia, Newcrest, Northparkes, Evolution Mining, and The Research School of Earth Sciences present.
The representatives delivered a short seminar about: their company or organisation, individual experiences within their field, and career opportunities and tips. After the presentations, individual stalls were set-up, giving students the opportunity to network with industry professionals and receive advice. Students enjoyed the opportunity to converse with potential employers about career opportunities within the mining industry.
There was a good representation of students across all stages of their studies ranging from 1st year undergraduate to PhD.
The AusIMM Canberra Student Chapter would like to thank all the companies, organisations and students for attending the evening, making it a great success. A special thank you goes to the Research School of Earth Sciences and the AusIMM for sponsoring the event and for their continued support of the Canberra Student Chapter.
