Searching and applying for work in Perth, WA – What you need to know, by Matthew Coppola

The jobs market in Perth, Western Australia is indeed varied and broad, being such a large state with opportunities in both professional and trade roles.

There are many ways that job seekers can search for work in this state, such as through online job search websites as and, as well as in the local paper and local job sites for the communities.

Finding and applying for work can certainly be a challenging and emotional time for anyone. Finding the right job, with the right pay in the right area requiring the right level of experience and skills can be tricky. Sure, it takes time, patience and positive thinking to move forward in applying for work.

The west coast of Australia is quite large and spread out, with jobs in all kinds of areas, not just the central business district.

Public transport and road/bike/path access does however make it easier to get to work.

Having lived in Perth myself, I understand first-hand what it’s like to get to one place to the next.

Here are a few suggestions to help you get noticed:

  • Personalise your cover letter for each job – address the employer’s requirements.
  • Make sure your resume and cover letter are easy to read.
  • Be specific about each job and take the necessary time to apply. Avoid rushing.


Equipping yourself with a brand new tailored and personalised CV and cover letter can be a great way to improve your chances of getting noticed by a prospective employer based in Perth.
