How to find a job in New Zealand – Questions and Answers
How do I find work in New Zealand?
To find a job in New Zealand, you need to view what jobs are available and the Employers that are hiring in your industry. We explain how to do that in our Webinar here: https://www.jobready.co.nz/product/job-search/
You also need to view the New Zealand Immigration skills shortages list which would fast track a job offer if your skills and experience match one of the shortage options: http://skillshortages.immigration.govt.nz/
How can I make sure my CV is viewed when I apply for a job?
Your CV needs to be focussed on what the job you are applying for requires. Make sure you are applying for roles that MATCH your skills and experience, that is essential. Your CV needs to be modified for every role you apply for, so that it focusses on your skill base that matches what the Employer is looking for.
