AMC Consultants (AMC) was pleased to participate in Austmine’s Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program and contribute to the career development of young professionals. Supported by funding from METS Ignited, this program provides a direct route for female STEM students to gain work experience and employment within the METS industry. It also increases awareness of the potential career opportunities in the METS sector for women studying STEM subjects at university.
Over a period of ten weeks, UWA Masters of Civil Engineering student, Amelia Tedja, joined AMC’s team in Perth as part of Austmine’s Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program. She describes the program as “challenging in that I had to learn new software and new concepts in a short period of time but it was rewarding in that I was able to push my limits”. She adds that “the knowledge and skills I’ve gained have been extremely important and something I would not have been able to learn in my university education”.
AMC Managing Director and CEO, Patrick Smith, views the program as “an opportunity to meet the leaders of the mining and the METS industry of the future” and encourages other companies to “come and join the program and you’ll get to see the future right now”.
Recruitment for the second round of the program has started. Organizations and students interested in being involved in the program can register their interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
