Oops... missed August, here's the September update added


As mentioned before, please bear in mind the following about these figures:
  • Some Seek jobs have multiple adverts through different agencies
  • Some are advertised in all cities event though the job is only in one
  • Some may be fake or filled jobs just so that agencies can gather CVs
  • Some jobs are never even advertised on Seek

You are invited to draw your own conclusions to these figures but I'm in a long term contract and being bugged by agencies regularly.

I'll try to update this weekly and maybe even create some nice graphs at some point.

This is a very rough guide only, some jobs get advertised multiple times and others don't get onto Seek at all, the actual numbers aren't important but any significant upward or downward trend probably is:

Thanks for this, but how do you get to find the non-agency jobs that aren't on SEEK or the other job sites?

Find the company you want to go to and visit the website. It is more work in the short run but you do not have to deal with agents.

Hi BE,

Just a quick question. Do you think Oracle DBA's have good chances of finding a job in South Australia particularly in Adelaide?

I have done some quick searches in seek.com.au and found that Oracle DBA positions in Adelaide is quite rare. :-(
