Current Poll

Ever had a recruiter put your resume forward for a job but don’t remember them asking to do so?

Our February poll asks about a situation that comes up a lot in our industry – recruiters putting candidates forward for mining jobs without asking the candidate if they’re interested first.

Do you think recruiters should be required to get express and recent permission from a candidate each time they want to put them forward for a mining job?
Have you ever had a recruiter put your name forward for a job without asking you first?
Tell us how you feel about this practice in the box below.

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!
