13 Places to Search for Jobs

TotoyOZresidentTotoyOZresident Posts: 1,335Member, Moderator
There are various places to look for a job. The web has opened up many new places, and new services are always emerging to compete with established players.

Whether you search online, in newspapers, through specialist agencies, at job seeker centres and through networks, don't limit your search to one source.

Here are 13 places you can search for a job.

1. Job board websites
Job board websites are the most popular way to search for jobs. They feature jobs advertised by employers and employment agencies. They typically let you search jobs by keywords, occupation, location, employment type – for example full time or contract – and salary rate. Some websites such as Seek and Adzuna advertise jobs in all industries, while others specialise in just one industry. You can save your job search and be sent an email when jobs come up that match your interests and preferences. You can also create a profile and upload your resume so employers can contact you if they have a job that suits you.

2. Company and organisation websites
Companies, organisations and government departments often advertise vacancies and graduate programs on their websites. Check for a 'careers' or 'about us' section on the homepage. They also advertise through their social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+). You can follow companies and subscribe to their feeds on social media to keep updated about opportunities. The APS Jobs website lists Australian Public Service vacancies around Australia and overseas. State governments advertise vacancies on their careers websites.

3. LinkedIn
LinkedIn has emerged as an important platform for finding job vacancies. Companies, organisations and government departments all advertise jobs on LinkedIn. If you create a career profile, LinkedIn will use information from your profile to show you jobs you may be interested in. You can also save jobs and searches, to find out when new results match your criteria.

4. Employment agencies
There are some jobs you can only find out about through employment agencies. Agencies regularly contact employers to ask about job openings, and employers place vacancies directly with agencies. Different agencies offer different services. Some agencies specialise in one area, others in several related areas. Some specialise in entry-level positions, others in executive searches. Make sure you know what type of agency you're approaching. Some agencies offer training to upgrade your skills and make you more employable. To get a job through an agency, you register with that agency. Usually this means completing a registration or application form. It might involve a skills test for jobs such as computing or administration. You may also be asked to show proof of your qualifications.

5. Networking
Networking is an important way to find out about suitable positions. Develop a strategy to get you and your message known by those most likely to connect you to suitable positions. There are many formal networking events but you can also use your local and personal networks formed through community involvement, sport or hobbies. Networking through colleagues is a good way of finding new positions. You should talk to trusted colleagues and accept their support. They know you extremely well at work and will want to give you as much practical help as possible. Let people know what your plans are and what position you are now looking for instead of dwelling on what has happened.

6. Centrelink
When you register with Centrelink, they will give you information about searching for jobs and the services or programs you might be eligible for.

7. jobactive
jobactive is the Australian Government's new employment service, designed to meet the needs of job seekers and improve job outcomes. Providers of jobactive are private and community organisations set up to find jobs and provide employment and training-related services for unemployed people. They are funded by the Australian Government. The new service includes jobactive, powered by JobSearch, a job board website with thousands of job vacancies. You can register for free, use the online resume training tool and apply for jobs online.

8. Labour hire and temporary agencies
Labour hire and temp agencies match workers to available jobs. In this arrangement, the agency becomes your employer, assigning you to different jobs. Temporary jobs are a great way to build skills and get experience. Also, some employers use labour hire and temp agencies to trial workers before offering permanent employment.

9. Group Training Organisations
Group Training Organisations employ apprentices and trainees and place them with 'host employers'. As an apprentice or trainee with a Group Training Organisation, you're sure of continuous work and training.

10. Events
Events such as career expos also offer job search opportunities. Industries promote themselves as career options and employers give out information about working with their companies and their current vacancies. Sometimes you can apply for a position right there, so take a few copies of your resume with you and be prepared in case there's an opportunity for an on-the-spot interview.

11. Newspapers
Newspapers – daily, weekly, local, state and national – have job advertisements. The jobs are usually grouped by profession and industry but it pays to look through all sections as the job you want may be in a different section from the one you expect. For daily newspapers, check which days feature careers and employment. There may be listings every day in the classified section, the main news, and the business section. Daily newspapers are available in libraries and many cafes. Check local papers for local jobs. The job you want may be just around the corner from you. The articles in the career and employment section, or in the business section, also tell you about trends, businesses or projects starting up or expanding. You may be able to apply before jobs are even advertised.

12. Professional and trade associations
Professional and trade association websites often have job advertisements, or run in-depth articles about industry trends. You might want to subscribe to industry journals if they regularly advertise jobs you're interested in. Otherwise, you might find them at local, university or TAFE libraries.

13. Noticeboards
Noticeboards can be a source for local jobs, often based on a casual or part-time work arrangement. Keep an eye out for job vacancy notices in places like:

shop windows
shop counters
community noticeboards (often found at supermarkets, libraries and shopping centres)
outside factory gates.

    Hello guys,
    Please i'm looking for employer sponsorship to Australia. If anyone has any information or can help sponsor me through their place of work, i'll be really delighted and grateful.
    Please contact me through [email protected]
    Thanks a lot.
  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,310Member, Moderator
    @brownsugar149 if you have plans to settle down sa AU. Best way is through immigrant visa. Now a days Australian employers prefer hiring people who are already there. Kasi madami mga wala work doon and they wont spend for visa cost. Yet there are still chances for those with specialized skills.

    I can't seem to find how to create a topic here, so I decided to post it here. Just remove If I violated the forum rules.

    We are looking for software developer, visit https://www.nojapower.com.au/careers.html or message me if interested. Company prefers those already in Brisbane and with working rights.
