Probably the most informative mining site on the Internet. Includes information on equipment, companies, education & training, events, countries, and much more. The CareerMine includes many job listings from around the world along with a list of recruiters and a resume database. The problem is many of the areas (including most of the job listings) are limited to subscribers, but if this is your field then the subscription is a wise investment.
Mining USA
…mining industry jobs all over the US and internationally. All ads are dated as to when they were posted. Other great information on the industry is available at this site.
Offshore Guides
This started as a way to let people know about a book, The Complete Offshore Employment Handbook, but it has expanded to include more employment information for this field. To apply for jobs found here, you must registered with a resume in their service. This is free. However, if you want to know who the employers are, want to be able to forward your resume directly, and to have access to a list of employers that you can contact, you must subscribe to this service.
…nice site filled with all kinds of jobs for the worldwide oil and gas industry. The company is based in the UK (Scotland), but the listings cover the globe. You can easily search, select, review, and even apply for a particular position. You are also welcome to register for a free account, which includes uploading your resume/CV (some privacy controls are available) and creating job agents to alert you to new postings. They have some nice career information (some require you to be a registered member).
…info and resources for the worldwide oil and gas industry. The Career Center features jobs, many of which have the application contact information in them, but apparently some employers/recruiters want to post a more confidential listing which only Rigzone members can apply for at no cost. Others must purchase the contact info. Hmm. Well, membership is free and requires you to post a resume, and they even evaluate your resume for you, so why not.
Thomas Mining Associates

World Oils
A huge news and information resource center for the worldwide oil and gas exploration/mining industry. Wow, if you want a piece of equipment you can probably buy it here. And they have a pretty darn nice job board too. They’d like you to register (free) but the job board does not require you to register. Other sections of the site may, but all the job announcements I looked at had application information publicly viewable.
