Our Job Seeker Toolkit is a great collection of tips and advice to help you prepare for job applications and interviews. For instance, the links include advice on how to prepare a great looking and effective resume. This is so essential because even if you’re suitable for the job, if your resume is messy or difficult to read, then you may be overlooked. Next, there’s a handy list of pointers to keep you focused during your job search phase. Remember, remaining positive throughout the process is really important.
We have made it easy for you to search for jobs by compiling a list of the most popular job search websites in one location. It’s important not to make the mistake of thinking that all job sites have the same jobs, they don’t. Therefore it’s well worth subscribing to all the big ones to get daily alerts. Also on the list are more specialist job search links and some for major retailers such as Coles and Woolworths.
Going for an interview can be a nerve-racking time. It’s often something that doesn’t come naturally to most so you have to prepare. Our ‘Interview do’s and don’ts guide is a good place to start. Why not study the tips and practice with your family or friends?
If you’re still not sure which direction to go in, ask your Job Advisor about work experience, work trials or ETC’s pre-employment training programs. These enable you to “taste test” different industries and showcase your skills to prospective employers. In short, this can be a great way for you to see what the work is really like and puts you in an ideal position to impress employers.
Skills Match will show you jobs or careers that use your skills. Simply enter the jobs you have worked in, including volunteer or non-paid, see the list of skills associated with those jobs and then get ideas for jobs that match those skills!

Job Switch can help you explore jobs you might have not considered. Find new and different jobs you might already have the skills for, see how similar they are to jobs you’ve done before, find out if they’re in high demand and see what your training options are.
