As closing dates will vary between businesses and from year to year, check early in your final year at university to ensure you know when applications are due.

As many mining related positions are in Western Australia, it is not surprising that the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum offers a graduate program with a generous starting salary of $68k. Applications close in August each year for a January start.

Depending upon the area of interest graduates should also consider The Geoscience Australia Graduate Program, an initiative of the Australian government.
