One of the most common ways to find employment opportunities in 2021 is online. There are hundreds of online job boards out there, as well as apps, social media channels, networking groups, and government and staffing websites to choose from. The good news is that they provide plenty of listings. The bad news is you can become overwhelmed by the wide variety of options. So where are the best places to find your next role? We’ve done the research to help you determine the best job websites to visit on your search.

State Government Websites: If you are interested in a career in state or territory government, then you will find a full list of job vacancies available on each state and territory’s website. They provide an opportunity to search for jobs, graduate programs, cadetships, and application information. Don’t forget, most government roles will require selection criteria to be addressed.
Australian Job Search: A government website for job seekers, you can search for short-term or contract work, part-time or full-time positions, local government jobs, as well as traineeships and apprenticeships. The site also offers information on how to find training and employment services programs, occupation and industry statistics, and job application tips.
We recommend using the above website as a starting point for your job search, and to continually refine your search parameters. Once you have decided on the direction you are wanting take, you can further your search through individual company websites. Don’t forget to drill down in the search engines by using specific key words relating to roles you are looking for, and searching in different categories as employers don’t always list their roles in the most obvious places.
