New online tool to help job seekers find work

THE Federal Government has launched a new online tool to help job seekers and workers identify upcoming opportunities in the job market.

Jobs and Industrial Relations Minister Kelly O’Dwyer launched the Explore Australia online tool as part of the revamped Job Outlook website on Wednesday.

The new tool helps job seekers discover how demand is changing in their local community and provides details on projected jobs growth and the key skills employers are looking for in filling these roles.


“This new tool will help job seekers and workers better understand how they can position themselves to make the most of upcoming opportunities in their local community,” Minister O’Dwyer said.

“The Coalition Government is firmly focussed on supporting job seekers, workers and students to identify and acquire the skills, training and work experience they need to find a job and keep it.

“There are more Australians in work than ever before, but there is more work to do. We are getting on with the job.”

Nearly 1.4 million people visited the Job Outlook website last year alone.
