Unregistered Easiest way is to set up your own company. Civ eng grad can start your own contracting firm and can be your own PE. I know many contracters driving S class but there are also many that go bankcrupt especially during the recession.

also, if you're a mining engineer, I would recommend just migrating to Australia under the professional migration scheme. you get a much more relaxed life in a beautiful place.

2. Go into mgmt OR be a consultant and specialise in a niche field OR etc etc
