Search Jobs

It's time to search jobs your way. You can take control of your job search by entering specific keywords and location, or you can sit back, relax, and let us show you what's out there. All search methods are described below.

Search by Keywords

Keywords are words, phrases and acronyms used to describe your target job. Your keywords can be anything from job titles to required skills, industries, or company names (e.g., UNIX, programmer, sales, human resources, Google, marketing, advertising). When you enter one or more keyword and click Find Jobs, a search is conducted for job listings that include your keywords in the job title and/or job description.

Clicking the 'Search job titles only' checkbox means that the search will look for only those keywords in the Job Titles of the jobs, which will provide more focused and relevant results.

Using multiple keywords? How you enter your keywords will influence your search results. Check out our search tips.

Search by Location

It's now easier than ever to search for jobs by location.

Australian Locations

To search for Australian jobs, enter the city, state, or postcode (or any combination of the three) of the location you want to work in. Since some city names are more popular than others, you'll get more accurate results if you search for a city and state combination.

International Search

To search for a job anywhere in the world, select the 'International Search' tab. Choose a country and enter a city, region, and/or postcode for precise results. Depending on the country, you can also enter a state, province, or region name to narrow down your search.

More Search Options

You can narrow down your search by choosing additional search terms. Click the 'More search options' arrow to see your options.

This exact phrase

Select this checkbox if you're searching for a phrase, such as "sales manager" or "visual designer."

Not these keywords

Use this to exclude certain words from your search. For example, if you're looking for a sales job but don't want to sell insurance, enter "insurance" here.

Company

Find jobs posted by a specific company, or see all jobs available there, by entering the company name here.

Industries

Narrow your search to jobs in certain industries, or explore all jobs in specific industries, by selecting them here. You can choose up to ten.

Occupations

All jobs on CareerOne are classified by an occupation. Select one or more occupations to only view jobs that have been classified with that job category. This search can be useful if you don't have a specific job title or location in mind, but simply want an overview by area of interest. You can choose up to 30 occupations.

Job type

Choose one or more job types to define what type of work you're looking for, whether it's a full-time or part-time, permanent, contract, or even casual. This helps you weed out jobs that don't fit in your schedule or don't provide enough hours.

Keyword Search Tips

Enter keywords for the job titles and job descriptions you would like to see. Keywords are words, phrases, and terms that you can enter to describe educational and professional experiences, skills, and company names. They will be used to search for jobs containing those words in their titles or descriptions. By typing in various keywords, you will maximise your chances of retrieving jobs that most accurately match what you're looking for.

You can create more-complex keyword searches by using "operators" within your keyword strings. Below is an explanation of the most widely used keyword "operators."

Examples include programmer, truck driver, SAP, telecommunications, human resources, marketing, sales, cashier, manager, etc.

"And" between each keyword lets you see search results that include all the keywords you've entered. This is the default search method when you enter multiple keywords with just spaces between them. The space is read as "and." When you use this method, you'll get a narrow, focused set of search results because all keywords will be included.

"Or" between each word produces a broader search. The results will include any combination of your keywords. To use an "or" search, separate each keyword with a comma (,) or type the word "or" between the words. Use an "or" search when more than one word could describe the same term

Then used between keywords, "and not" excludes the keyword or keyword phrase following it. Use "and not" to eliminate certain jobs from your search results

Using * (Shift + 8) after a root word will bring back any results that contain a variation of that root word in the title or description. Using *, known as the wildcard, widens your search results. Use wildcards when there are similar keywords that use the root word that would be an appropriate match.
