Resources and support for Aboriginal jobseekers

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. You might also discover that you need to upskill by undertaking some study or a qualification. Sounds like a lot of work, right? It can be, but the AWDC can help you every step of the way. Our AWDC team has helped hundreds of Aboriginal jobseekers in Western Australia choose a career 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 career path and get your CV or resumé together. There’s also lots of useful information including stories of other people’s career and jobseeking journeys. Take a look at the jobseekers section of the AWDC website, or get in touch so we can talk about how we can help you.
