Can SEEK tell me how my application is progressing?
At SEEK, our role is to connect people with employers. When you apply for a job on SEEK, your application is sent to - and managed directly by - the employer. For this reason, it’s best to get in contact with the employer directly if you wish to follow up on the status of your application, or require additional feedback.
What if the job ad doesn’t contain the employer’s contact details?
Many of the advertisers on SEEK have their own websites, so it can pay to search for the advertiser’s contact details using a search engine such as Google. Or you could send them an enquiry using the cover letter free-text space on the application form (if applicable).
No matter what the outcome of your application, there’s plenty you can do in the meantime to help set yourself up for success. Our expert advice will help you find, apply for, and land your next role.
