Job Search Series: Set up your Career Profile and Job Alerts

Global Skills understands that navigating different websites and services online to assist with job search is not always easy, which is why we created our Job Search Series.

The second in our series, will help you create your career profile and set up job alerts via the website jobsearch.gov.au. The career profile and job alert tools are available to all job seekers in both the jobactive and DES programs.

How to create your career profile

Your jobactive website career profile allows you to create a thorough record of your work history, education & qualifications, skills set, licences, availability, work preferences, referees and LinkedIn profile. It is a great way to keep your resume current and ready to apply for jobs.

The video below will show you how to upload a resume, what to add, or how to build one from scratch.

You can go back to your career profile and make updates at any time. You should make a habit to check it regularly and add any new work experience, skills or qualifications you have gained.

And don’t forget, now you made your career profile – you should use it! The next section will show you how set up job alerts so you’ll never miss the opportunity to apply for the job that’s right for you.

How to set up job alerts
