Your local AWDC can help you with your job search. You might need an up to date resumé, and there will be job applications to write.

Our AWDC team has helped hundreds of Aboriginal jobseekers in Western Australia choose a path and find employment. We're dedicated to helping you be successful and reach your goals.
Our website has a range of resources to help you choose a path and get your CV or resumé together. There’s also lots of useful information including stories of other people’s career development and jobseeking journeys.

The AWDC jobs board
AWDC works with employers to find great job opportunities for Aboriginal people and post them on our free online jobs board, ready for you to browse on our website.
If you register with the jobs board we'll send you an email notification whenever something comes up that matches what you're looking for – plus you'll get an online space where you can save your CV/resumé, references, job applications or portfolio.
