Get your job search off to the right start. Looking for a job is all about knowing where and how to find employment vacancies which match your skills, abilities and knowledge.

Where to look for work

Workforce Australia providers and employers place job vacancies on JobSearch.

Job Seekers can register with JobSearch for free. Look for jobs on the homepage by choosing keywords, your state and local area and preferred job category.

The advanced search option includes other details such as salary ranges; whether you’re looking for casual, part-time or full-time work; and jobs in specific industries.

You can look for jobs on employment websites including: 


  • Regularly check employment sections in local newspapers
  • search on social media as many employers post job vacancies on
  • Facebook or LinkedIn
  • Write to local employers asking if they have current or upcoming jobs available. Employers often won’t advertise a job but will consider people whose details they have on file.


You may need extra training to increase your skills to find work.

MatchWorks helps you find suitable courses, traineeships or apprenticeships to meet your career goals.

Visit the genU Training website for details on available qualification and short courses.
