Students Meet Industry

The best way to get your career off the ground is to network with the people who want to use your talents...

The AusIMM Students Meet Industry (SMI) is one of the biggest and best events for the future talent of the minerals industry to meet their future employers.

Every year, the Australian based AusIMM Student Chapter groups organise a SMI event designed to provide the biggest impact on the career choices and work opportunities for university students and opportunities for mining companies – big and small – to meet the incoming industry talent.

Student Meet Industry Evenings offer:

  • guest speakers providing insights into the minerals industry
  • access to the range of careers offered by companies large and small
  • vacation work options
  • graduate employment information
  • networking with other industry professionals

From Campus BBQs with graduate guest speakers, field trips, to formal dinners and career expos, our student members are passionate about promoting the minerals sector and provide the link between university study and the reality of work in the minerals sector.
