New resources for mature age workers and online job searchers

Two new fact sheets have been published to the Career Centre website. One provides career tips for mature age workers, and the other contains online job searching advice.

The mature age workers fact sheet is intended to provide career tips for mature age job seekers whose circumstances have changed, or who want a mid-career change of direction, or those who want to keep working well after traditional retirement age.

The job searching online fact sheet provides tips on using websites and search engines to improve your chances at finding work opportunities online.

Career Centre fact sheets are designed to be brief, concise resources used to summarise key information around popular career planning topics. They are all written specifically for the Western Australian context, and are a useful starting point that can then direct you to further resources and organisations that may be able to provide additional information.

You can view all Career Centre fact sheets on the Career Centre website.
