What would you do to own your own gold mine?
Would you be willing to start out in a call center at a bank?
Or commute 2 hours each way to a remote branch of the bank, just to get better work?
What about hustling your way into the mining industry, even after you’ve had solid full-time finance experience?
The answer to all those better be “yes,” because our interviewee today – Jerry Huang – had to do all of that and more when he first broke into the industry.
I’m not sure if he owns a gold mine yet, but just give it a few hours…
Natural resources is always a “different” sector, and in this comprehensive interview he breaks down metals & mining corporate development and investor relations, including:
- The windy path he took to break into metals & mining in Canada.
- How recruiting differs in natural resources, especially at smaller companies.
- What an average day in the corporate finance team of a natural resources company is like.
- How JV and asset-level deals differ from acquisitions of entire companies, and how you think about each of them differently.
