CIM MES Mentor Interviews

CIM MES mentor interviews are informal discussions with mining industry professionals about their background and varied roles, and the challenges and rewards of working in the mining sector. Our guests are a mix of relatively new industry entrants and more experienced professionals who share their experiences, insights and passion for their work.

The interviews provide a great opportunity for students and early-stage professionals to learn more about the people, issues, developments and potential career paths in the mining industry.

The mentor interviews are also available on YouTube on the Management & Economics Society of CIM channel. Schools, universities, and trade/professional associations are encouraged to share these videos with the relevant departments and members so that students and professionals will benefit.

Visit this page again as we plan to add more mentor interviews over time. We hope that viewers will enjoy learning about this dynamic and essential industry through the lens of our mentors, and that new industry participants will be inspired to join us.
