The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society's Job and Financial Security Resource Center offers resources that can help professionals search for employment, develop qualities beyond the technical competencies that are valued by employers and learn how to obtain employment rights and legal protections.

TMS members can gain access to information ranging from planning for life events to personal finance and contingency planning.
