AusIMM guides the next generation

Applications for AusIMM’s 2024 mentoring program are now open to help usher in the next generation of mining professionals.

This will be the fifth year that the program has run, continuing to serve as a cornerstone for professionals in the resources sector and fostering career growth through learning and professional development.

Industry professionals (mentees) who are looking to advance their careers are matched with experienced industry leaders (mentors) who are seeking a way to give back to the mining community.

Throughout the program, the mentors will share their expertise with and provide career guidance to the mentees.

“Receiving advice from someone who has been through this process themselves is amazing,” one mentee said. “Having them pass on their own experiences and share the steps they took has been invaluable for my professional journey.”

Another former mentee said the program helped sharpen their career focus.

“I have gone from having vague and irrelevant discussions about geology to having specific discussions about what expectations I have for the future,” they said. “My mentor has been fantastic and he has made my experience of this program highly enjoyable.”

Each program runs for nine months and will see mentors providing an advisory role to their mentees through meaningful conversations, constructive feedback and guidance.

Applications for both mentee and mentor places are now open.
