Search Help
The more terms you enter, the more specific your search results will be.
Want a broader search and more job ads? Add fewer terms or use general phrases.
Keyword(s)Type the job or skills you're looking for in the keyword field. Use double quotation marks to use a specific phrase. For example, "junior accountant" will only return job opportunities that contain that phrase.
ClassificationUse classification to only get results within a selected industry, such as Accounting, Information & Communication Technology or Sales.
Where - Suburb, City or StateFind jobs by postcode, suburb, city or state if you want to view opportunities in a specific location.
Using ClassificationsAgainst each classification you can see the number of job ads that meet your search criteria. You can search all jobs within a classification, or just select the specific sub-classifications most relevant to you. You can select as many classifications and sub-classifications as you like, but the more you select, the fewer search results you will see.
Other tips
  • Keywords are not case sensitive
  • It’s best to avoid special characters (e.g. %, /) as they are ignored.
  • Common keywords include job titles, skills and seniority levels (e.g. junior accountant, senior developer, menu creation).
  • SEEK are pretty clever when it comes to keywords, and we usually know what you mean. For example HR returns results including Human Resources.
  • If you use more than one keyword, your results will always feature at least two of your keywords in the results. You can change this by using Boolean search - using OR, AND, NOT:
  • Use OR when you want results that contain one or both keywords. e.g. Sales OR Manager gives you job ads that contain the words Sales, Manager or both these words.
  • Use AND when you want results that only contain both keywords. e.g. Sales AND Manager gives you job ads that contain both Sales and Manager.
  • Use NOT when you want to exclude certain words from your results. e.g. Sales NOT Manager gives you job ads that contain the word Sales but not the word Manager
Search Results (your jobs!)If you've entered keywords, the results will be ordered starting with the job with all your keywords and decreasing in relevance down the page. You can change this to sort by date, by clicking "Sorted by" at the top right of the search results screen.
