Geology Jobs: When it’s not down it’s down
There’s another uplifting optimistic news headline for you, not. The RSC Mining & Exploration Geology Employment Index fell again this week with a further 6% drop in the underlying number of advertised jobs for hard rock geos. A fall in employment advertising at this time of the year isn’t unexpected and is in keeping with what happened last December. It’s just that this time the Christmas dip has started from a lower baseline and the metals and mining equity indexes are trending down at the same time.
