SOMEWHERE IN CYBERSPACE – One of CMJ’s loyal readers sent us an email saying she had been enticed by a website that purports to find people jobs in the mining industry. In response to her request and admission that she had no experience in the industry, the website Mining-Canada.com sent her an email saying they had moved her file up (whatever that means) and that she would be a good candidate for a mining job.
That’s all very nice, but the website wanted $214 up front before anything else would be done.
We wish to remind our readers to be very skeptical of websites that ask for money to find you a job. “Pay up front” schemes are often run by scam artists.
We urge our readers desiring work in the industry read the job listings on CMJ‘s website – CMJjobs.com/ – and Daily Headline News. Job posting are also available on our sister publication The Northern Miner. Or contact exploration and mining companies directly. Their websites usually have a list of available positions and information on how to apply.
