    Default Newspaper or internet? How do you find jobs these days?

    Do I look at the little local paper, the state newspaper (Courier mail), on the net? I live in Brisbane.

    It's been a while since I've looked for a job; I remember when I left high school I had to register at Centrelink & look that way. Now it seems they only help ppl who are 'hard to employ'.

    Any help would be great!! Thanks

    I think it depends on the kind of job. If it's to work in the cafe around have corner maybe local paper. More skilled jobs online. Others may have more suggestions. Good luck!!

    Depends what kind of job. Generally I look at seek.com and the Vic and commonwealth government job websites.

    Thanks for the replies!!
    I'll be looking in Admin/ Accounts/ Payroll.
    I've previously been an Office Manager but will be looking for something part time with less responsibility.

    Definitely use seek.com.

    Always include a good cover letter with your resume and edit it each time to suit the particular position you are applying for.

    When I have previously been looking for work, I used to jump on there a couple of times a day to check for new jobs being posted so I could get in quickly with my application.

    Good luck

    I think most newspaper listed jobs can be found on the net these days. So unless you already buy or have access to newspapers, I'd just stick with job boards on the internet.

    I phoned up places I was interested in working at and asked who I could address an expression of interest to.
    It worked.


    For cafés/restaurants/retail shops, just to door to door and ask them if they're looking for anyone.


    The restaurant I used to work at never advertised for jobs, they always had a stack of resumes to flick through from people dropping them off earlier.

    DH has recently been made redundant and uses seek. It's awesome! All the jobs in the paper are listed there too. He has his resume and cover letter already attached to his profile so he just presses the apply button and that's it. Done. Easy.

    He also did a resume drop to all the places within his field.

    Just as a side note whilst seek is great, most employers hate it as they get hundreds of resumes they do not have time to look through so chances are pot luck if they will see yours. Gumtree is also good.
