The most obvious way to find your next job with SEEK is to search for it. However, with tens of thousands of opportunities available on the site at any one time, knowing the best way to search for your perfect role is important. SEEK has lots of advanced search filters that people don’t know about, so we’re going to show how you can unlock the full potential of search on SEEK and increase your chances of finding the right job.
Why use SEEK’s search tool?
SEEK’s search tool allows you to be in control of the jobs you can view and apply for. You can be as general or specific as you want in your search, to help you find jobs that match what you’re looking for.
How to use the search tool
You’ll find the Job Search tool bar as soon as you arrive at SEEK’s home page. You’ll be prompted to type in a keyword, which usually means the role you’re looking for, i.e. ‘project manager’ or ‘senior designer’, the classification, meaning the industry, and the location you wish to work. Some people who are unable to travel far from home can benefit from being very specific by entering a suburb or region, in this case.
Click on more options and you’ll be able to add search criteria such as work type (full-time, part-time, contract/temp or casual/vacation), salary or wage, and the time period in which the job ad was listed.
Stand-out features of the search tool
Signing in before searching means you can save not only jobs but also searches. So, for example, if you want to specifically look for part time Marketing Manager roles in Torquay paying between $70K - $100K listed in the last seven days, all you have to do is save the search and then when you visit SEEK next you simply click one button and all of the latest results for that role will be surfaced. Being signed in also unlocks other benefits including the ability to apply faster and be alerted to opportunities that match your SEEK Profile. If you haven’t yet set up an account with SEEK, just press the register button in the top right corner and follow the prompts.
