As I live in Australia, I apologise to anyone accessing this site from overseas who does not have the chance to work here. Below are some essential links to kickstart your job search.
Arguably Australia's premier Internet job site, and so successful that it's now a public company. I recommend establishing an account and setting up job alerts. You'll find that sites such as Seek sometimes change their home page which can be very annoying.
Previously MyCareer which was owned by the Fairfax newspaper group. Adzuna is a rebranding by Fairfax and links (jobs) on Fairfax news sites take you to Adzuna.
Owned by News Limited (Rupert Murdoch) and a well structured site where you can do all the usual things. I've always found Kate Southam's column useful.
If you've ever been unemployed, signed up with CentreLink, and been referred to a Job Network agency,then you'll be familiar with this site. Generally speaking, most of the advertised jobs are at the bottom end of the scale, but well worth setting up alerts if this is your sector. Recently re-branded as JobActive.
An Australian website from which you can apply directly to employers for listed jobs. There are absolutely no agencies involved, which is a big advantage if you're a job seeker.
Remember (Geoff) Morgan & (Andrew) Banks? I was once interviewed by Banks but I didn't match their typical profile for a recruiter (young salesperson!). They sold their firm to TMP who later sold out to Hudson. Morgan & Banks are still around, having established another recruitment firm called Talent2, and this entity, LinkMe, where you can lodge your résumé so that it can be accessed by potential employers. You can also receive alerts. There's no need to worry about confidentiality but make sure you read the instructions to reassure yourself.

A job matching site on which you create your profile and are matched up to suitable opportunities.
Describes itself as Australia's No.1 employment website for entry-level & part-time work.

A simple job search tool on which you insert keywords and find relevant jobs.
