Explore high-tech, high-paying careers in local mining industry at open house

6/19/2008 —
Numerous front-line supervisory positions are available in southwestern Pennsylvania’s mining industry, and companies are looking for qualified individuals to fill these high-tech, high-paying positions. A special Mining Technology Open House will be held Tuesday, June 24, from 6:30-8 p.m., at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ Coal and Coke Heritage Center for individuals interested in exploring these exciting career opportunities. Attendees will learn how they can gain the education they need through the two-year Mining Technology program at Penn State Fayette. This two-year degree program is the only one of its kind in Pennsylvania and fast-tracks individuals into supervisory roles in the mining industry.  

Participants will be able to talk with Russ Dunyak, a military veteran who is pursuing his mining technology degree at Penn State Fayette while working as a supervisory trainee at Consol Energy’s Shoemaker Mine. Representatives from the mining industry will be on hand to answer questions about safety, technology, and career opportunities.

Veterans are encouraged to attend this event. High school students with strong math, English and science backgrounds also are encouraged to attend, along with their parents.
