Posted March 02, 2020 09:10:03The mining industry is big business.
It’s a key sector of the U.S. economy and one of the biggest employers in the country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In fact, according the Bureau, there are more than 1.5 million people working in mining and related industries, accounting for a third of the total workforce.
The American Society of Civil Engineers ranks mining and mining related industries among the top five industries in the U.
“It is the most important industry in America, but there are a lot of challenges for people who work in mining,” said John D. Bunch, a senior vice president for government relations for the American Society for Civil Engineers.
“You have to be very prepared and have good communication skills, and you have to have a solid understanding of the regulations and policies surrounding your industry.”
For many workers, it’s an incredibly demanding industry.
Many of the jobs involve mining the precious minerals that are the foundation of a variety of industries.
These include gold, copper, silver, platinum and other precious metals, and other metals.
The jobs that require the most skill and experience require the highest level of education and experience.
“It is a big industry,” said Matt McBride, director of the Center for Workforce Innovation at the American Association for Public Opinion.
“There are some people who go to college and get degrees in law or medicine.
You have to get a really good job experience.”
Bunch says you have two choices when you’re searching for a job in the mining industry.
You can look for a position in a specific industry, or you can look to expand your career.
“We look at it as two different careers,” Bunch said.
“If you’re looking for a career in law enforcement, law enforcement is a huge field for many people.
If you’re in the mines, you have an opportunity to go into a field that’s different and you’ll be able to build a portfolio that will lead to higher paying jobs.”
For those who aren’t in law school or don’t have any training, they can also search for a mining job through the Bureau’s website.
They are able to search by industry, type of work, location, and type of pay.
If your salary is lower than average, you may find a better position, according Topping, who said that the mining jobs can be competitive.
“You may be able pay better than someone in the general mining industry,” Topping said.
“In some cases, it may be cheaper to do the mining because they can do a lot more work than a general contractor.
In other cases, you can find a job with higher pay because the job requires a certain level of experience.”
The Bureau’s database of mining jobs also shows that the industry is growing.
According to the bureau, mining employment has increased by over 2 percent annually for the last four years.
The most recent numbers come from the Bureau in December of 2020.
“For every job we’ve added, the number of jobs in mining has increased.
There are currently nearly 11 million people employed in the industry, and over half of those people are in mining, so it’s not just an increase in the number, but also in the quality of the work that people do,” Bunkham said.
Some of the things that a miner does to earn his paycheck include driving trucks, welding and blasting.
“I’ve been driving trucks for 20 years and it’s still a passion for me,” Bong said.
Bong is currently earning $50,000 per year as a mining engineer.
He is hoping to eventually get a job at a coal mine.
“This is something I would love to do, but I’ve got to figure out where I’m going to live and where I want to live,” Bongsaid.
“I’ve got a couple different places, and I think I’m a bit too far from home.
I’ve also got a wife and kids that I’m trying to find somewhere else, and then we’ll figure out how to find a place that’s close enough.”
The good news is that the jobs in the mine industry aren’t just for those who are educated and have experience.
According the Bureau data, there is also a strong job market for those with less education.
There are also a lot people out there who are looking for work, but the unemployment rate is lower, and they have the right qualifications to do so.
“There are a few people who have a very high unemployment rate and that’s because of a lack of education,” Topper said.
“[Some] people have gone through college and they’re looking at mining as a way to get their degree, but they’re not ready for the rigors of that work.
It takes a lot for someone to be ready to move into this industry.”
The mining jobs are often a high paying profession.
