Now the possibility of providing young personnel with temporary housing in the city of Usolye-Sibirsky is being considered.


More than 100 university students gathered in the IRNITU auditorium, studying in the areas of “Electric Power and Electrical Engineering”, “Mechanical Engineering”, “Operation of Transport and Technological Machines and Complexes”, “Automation of Technological Processes”, “Innovation”, “Mining”, “Technology of geological exploration”. Career days from the largest salt producer are always of great interest to future mining professionals.

As a result of the meeting, 20 students applied for an internship at the local branch of the company.


Ruslan Gramma emphasized that there are vacancies for graduates at the fields in Sol-Iletsk, Usolye-Sibirskoye, and at Lake Baskunchak, as well as at a new modern salt production plant in Novomoskovsk. It was put into operation in 2018, built and equipped with the latest technology, which corresponds to the latest achievements of science and technology.
