What are the best times to advertise your job or resume?

Governess Australia is encouraging JobBoard users to advertise at the following times for optimum service;

For a Term 1 start: 1st of September to 14th of December - after that I am on school holidays and will be working outside in the day but will try to update each night throughout January. 

For Terms 2, 3, and 4: Advertise at least 6 weeks before the term ends if possible.

We encourage both employers and job seekers to look at the JobBoard within these times.
