Current Poll

Finding the right mentor to guide your career can make a huge difference, especially in a specialised & niched industry like Mining. We’d love to know if you have/had a mentor & what that has meant for you & your career.

Did you (or do you) have a mining industry mentor?

If so, who was that person to you?
What kind of support did your mentor give you? Tick all that apply
Whether you’ve had a mentor in the past or not, if you could choose anyone in the Australian or international mining industry to be your mentor, who would it be?
And finally, why did you choose this person?

All votes and comments are anonymous and will be used to produce a summarised discussion paper at the end of the month. <br />Thanks so much for taking part in this Mining People Polling/Media Centre poll. We’ll publish the results on our website next month. You can see the results of some of our other recent polls below!
