Advertising Specialist in Canberra

Recommended Posts

Guest Aloochi

Hi,

I've applied for migration as an advertising specialist for Canberra Regional Sponsorship which states this position as Limited Availability but I have not been able to find a single job in this category online. Can someone please refer me to portals (other than Hays, Seek, Michael Page which I practically remember by heart) Are there any advertising positions in Canberra (or ACT) at all?? I'm so lost! Please please help.

Thanks

Sadaf

Hi Sadaf

 

Just FYI - for all intents and purposes, the ACT and Canberra are the same. There are no other settlements in the ACT to speak of apart from a couple of hamlets.

 

With respect to advertising, I would guess (but am not in the industry, so just guessing) that there would be very few of these sort of jobs. Of course, local businesses advertise on local TV, in the Canberra Times and on radio but I wouldn't categorise the market as "sophisticated" or large. My opinion: Australian adverts tend to resort to screaming at the audience to convince them to visit a business, whilst liberally tossing around phrases like "prices sacrificed"!

 

Again, my view and not backed by experience: I would say you're much more likely to get a job in Sydney or Melbourne than in the ACT.

 

I sometimes wonder where the Dept of Immigration and the State and Territory governments get their job vacancies data from.

 

Would be good to hear from others who have experience of the industry. Good luck.

There are a couple of agencies in Canberra - Zoo Advertising and Voodoo spring to mind - but I have no idea how many positions are likely to be available. I wouldn't imagine there would be a lot.

 

You might be better off contacting the agencies themselves to get an idea of their forward recruiting plans.

 

Good luck.

Thank you both, I appreciate your help. I have been looking around and have resorted that such jobs are not available on formal forums. Forums like Gumtree have local communication positions for small businesses I know its a long shot, I hope hope hope something good comes up before time for the MIS.

 

Zman, to speak to your point... Advertising and Marketing positions are advertised in Hundreds for Sydney and Melbourne BUT, they don't have advertising specialist positions open in those states. Such a dilemma. REAAAAAALLY counting on this to work out.
