There is a lot of hype about booming mining industry in Queensland. Even if you turn on your TV once in a blue moon, you probably would have seen government ads that promote mining jobs and inform viewers of massive numbers of workers this industry requires. If you’ve seen these ads, you probably had an urge to drop everything, pack your bags and go work in the mines. This urge is understandable. When someone throws a six figure salary at you; it’s really hard to say “no”, especially if you only have to work half a year to earn it. So influenced by this hype, and probably thinking about a new boat that you will buy, you decide to go for it.
