Looking for a job

Finding a job has been made much easier with the introduction of the internet, especially when looking for interstate or overseas jobs.

The three main sources for job information are the internet, newspapers and industry publications.


There are many internet sites providing job information for extension workers. Some sites also aggregate jobs from other sites so it is common to see the same job advertised in many different places.

Many government and private organisations also advertise jobs on their own website. So if you interested in working for a particular organisation then their internet site is a good place to start.

The following are a sample of sites that provide job information for extension workers.
