Conclusion

Jobs Sydney City 

As Sydney is one of Australia’s largest cities, the Sydney CBD is a popular location for job seekers with approximately 498,384 people working in Sydney City. 

Above, I’ve listed 4 job vacancies that cater to different skill sets that may appeal to you or may be helpful to you in terms of where to find jobs and what keywords to use. For example, looking directly on company websites vs. job search engines.  

Jobs Parramatta 

If you’re looking to work outside of the Sydney CBD, jobs in Parramatta are increasingly popular as Parramatta is looking to be the next ‘Sydney CBD’ through its urban renewal proposal. The 5 jobs that I have listed vary from roles in hospitality to a role as an educator. My advice is that if you’re not finding any luck in the Sydney CBD, looking for jobs in Parramatta may be beneficial for you, as job vacancies are rapidly increasing with the growth of the Parramatta CBD. Currently, 137,883 people work in Parramatta CBD and only 21% live in the area, which means that the commute to Parramatta is easy as many people commute for school and work. 

Jobs North Sydney 

Looking at the other side of the bridge, North Sydney is a popular location for job seekers as it is only 3 kilometres from Sydney CBD. In fact, of the 72,224 people who work in the North Sydney area, only 14.0% lived in the area. This means that North Sydney is a popular commute destination for workers, especially with there are frequent trains going to and from North Sydney. Thereby, many North Sydney workers choose to commute via train. 

I’ve listed 4 diverse job vacancies that you may be interested in applying to directly or you may want to use as a guide to finding more jobs that are suitable for you in the North Sydney area. Either way, my advice is that if you’re wanting to work in the Sydney CBD and you don’t want to travel to the west, North Sydney may be the ideal work location for you. 

General advice 

So you’re probably reading through this blog thinking “oh my goodness, I’m overwhelmed” and I understand the struggle. That’s why I’m also going to highlight some tips and tricks on how you optimise your job search.

1. Putting ‘near me’ in your search. 

Just like searching ‘restaurant openings near me’, searching ‘jobs near me’ or ‘jobs hiring near me’ will help show you the jobs that are hiring near your location. 

2. Know where to look. 

Don’t limit yourself to the jobs on the big, mainstream job search engines. There are many jobs on local job boards and search engines, on social media and in person. Searching specific keywords like “no experience jobs near me” or “jobs Sydney” will get picked up and ads on your social media platforms will start showing you job advertisements that are relevant to you. 

For example, I recently received this advertisement on Facebook when I was searching for “marketing jobs near me”.

3. Find jobs that align with your skills and capabilities. 

When searching for jobs, be specific with what you want to find, for example, if you’re in NSW and you’re looking for jobs in the health industry type in ‘jobs NSW health’ and the more you search those keywords, the more targeted ads for jobs in that specific industry will appear. 

4. Be confident in yourself and what you have to offer. 

It is not a listed trait in many job listings, however, Indeed has highlighted that confidence is a key characteristic that employers are looking for as confident employees are often friendly, keen to learn and great team players. 

5. Keep an eye out for multiple positions at one company 

Often companies are looking to hire for multiple positions. As there is no limit to how many jobs you can apply for, I suggest you apply for multiple positions at a company if you feel like the positions are right for you. For example, as listed above, many companies such as Five Point Burgers and Good Group Hospitality are looking to fill in many positions that cater to similar and differing skill sets.  Still unsure? I also have a blog up on ‘6 easy, simple ways to get a job significantly faster’, where I give you advice on how you can simplify and optimise your job search process.
