Online jobs boards and other resources

There are many online resources that advertise job vacancies. It's best to try several, rather than limit yourself to one.

This is because some offer only specialist roles in select industries while others combine job listings from a wide range of sources.

Job search websites

Online job search websites such as SeekCareer OneLinkedIn and others not only list vacancies but provide helpful advice on how to:

  • search for jobs using keywords and filters
  • set up job alerts
  • create a profile or store a resume online

Company websites

If there are specific employers or companies you’d like to work for, visit the careers section of their website or one of their social media channels, like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.

Even if there are no suitable jobs advertised, you can often register your interest and preferences, and be notified if a role that matches your criteria becomes available in the future.

Recruitment agencies

Employment or recruitment agencies are companies that match people to jobs. Some specialise in particular kinds of roles or industries.

Visit their websites to search for available roles and other job finding resources. 

If there are no jobs that match your skills and experience, you can often upload your resume or register an expression of interest.

Jobs in government

There is a wide range of jobs, careers, professional development options, as well as training and education opportunities offered across local, state and federal governments.

Jobs in government cover many areas of work, including:

  • business or community services
  • communications and human resources
  • economic development and infrastructure
  • science and the environment
  • finance and treasury
