Do You Have Clients Interested in the Mining Industry?

By William Meyer, Director of Marketing and Communications at MiHR.

If you have clients interested in the mining sector, this Virtual Career Fair could be their ticket…

The Mining Industry Human Resources Council (MiHR) invites mining sector employers, job seekers, and students to participate in an innovative virtual career fair on February 6 and 7, 2018, entitled A Career in Mining is More Than You Think.

MiHR’s virtual career fair will provide an unparalleled opportunity for Canadian mining companies to recruit qualified candidates from across the country in a user-friendly online setting. The format provides an easy, effective way to identify and chat with qualified candidates, and to promote career opportunities and increase brand awareness. This two-day virtual event will encourage employers to leverage wage subsidies that MiHR is providing in order to overcome barriers to recruitment. MiHR is offering employers a wage subsidy up to $12,000 through its Green Jobs Program, and up to $7,000 through its Gearing Up Program. The Green Jobs Program helps post-secondary graduates gain relevant and meaningful work experience in mining, with a focus on clean technology and innovation, through paid internships. Gearing Up aims to change the way students perceive, pursue, and acquire the skills necessary for in-demand mining occupations through the creation of 1000 new work-integrated learning opportunities over the next four years.

Visit mihr.vfairs.com for more information and to register today. More information on MiHR’s wage subsidy programs is available at https://www.mihr.ca/careers/wage-subsidy-programs.

We are hoping other organizations will help spread the word to assist us in delivering work-integrated learning opportunities to the Canadian mining industry. We are asking all influencers to share the virtual career fair registration link with contacts they feel could benefit from this event.
