Austmine is delighted to announce our second round of the Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program, supported by funding from METS Ignited, is now open.

This program aims at raising awareness of METS and the career opportunities provided by our sector, across women studying STEM subjects at universities.

The program includes:
  •  Industry information evenings, where women from the METS industry will be invited to speak before the students on their experiences of working in the sector. Host businesses are invited to attend and meet the next generation of employees.
  • An application and interview process for students who wish to apply for the internship opportunities available in the participating METS companies.
  • A series of webinars featuring industry speakers to provide coaching for the successful students on starting a career in the METS sector.
  • A 10 - 12 week paid internship at a participating METS company, from November – February to be determined between the businesses and students.
  • Post program report based on a survey of all students and companies involved in the program.
  • Opportunity for your business branding to be associated with boosting diversity in the METS sector and introducing the METS sector to university students.

Businesses have until July 2018 to submit their applications to be part of the program, but to ensure you receive maximum exposure, submit your application before 31 May 2018.

For further information or to submit your application, please contact Alison McGuigan, Project Coordinator - Women in STEM, or 02 9357 4660.
