Looking for an Australian Apprenticeship is the same as searching for any job
Job hunting, whether for apprenticeships and traineeships or any other job, uses the same steps. There is no one place listing apprenticeship and traineeship jobs.
Australian Apprenticeships start with an employer deciding to recuit staff using the specific approach to employing and training employees.
If an employer is looking for new staff they often advertise online or in local or major newspapers.
But another avenue to employers can be to approach them directly. Tools such as search engines or directories such as the Yellow Pages can provide ways of identifying employers by industry and location. This information can be used to develop a list of employers that may employ specific occupations or skills.
Using personal networks can also be an effective way of finding employers, as well as getting in contact with organisations that regularly interact with employers. These include Apprenticeship Network providers, Group Training Organisations and Registered Training Organisations.
These methods of 'hunting' for employers demonstrate motivation and determination, as well as having the potential to by-pass queues of applicants for advertised positions.
The first step should always be identifying the industry or occupation of most interest and making this the target of job hunting efforts.
