Are you ready to start your job hunt in New Zealand?

Find out by doing a quick self-assessment.

Do you have the four components of your Job Search?

Do you have a New Zealand formatted CV and Cover Letter?

On an average, an employer takes 30 seconds to read a CV before deciding if they should shortlist your application, and it would even be less for your most experienced recruiters.

Having a CV that effectively presents information that is required by New Zealand employers will also be another factor to consider if you want your application to go through the next stage. Finding ways to adjust your CV to pass the 30 seconds test while being able to customise this for the New Zealand market will be quite a challenge.

Do you have an All-Star LinkedIn profile?

Let's review some stats, shall we? LinkedIn has over 760 million members in more than 200 countries worldwide. Finding a skilled person with a specific experience isn't too far fetched anymore, thanks to this social media platform.

It is no surprise to see that 87% of recruiters regularly use LinkedIn and it also has been reported 122 million people have received their interviews through this site. In New Zealand, there were 2.2 million users in December 2020, which accounts for 45% of the country's entire population.

These are amazing numbers and as a job seeker, when used correctly, LinkedIn can be a powerful tool to have in your job-hunting arsenal. But using LinkedIn, comes with its own challenges. Having 45% of the entire NZ population in LinkedIn, it is now paramount to build a profile that will stand out.

Do you have a plan to tap into the "Hidden Job Market"?

In New Zealand, only 30% of all job opportunities are advertised.

If you don't know how to tap into the Hidden Job Market, you will miss out on 70% of all available jobs.
This also translates into tougher competition for the remaining 30% of 'visible' jobs.

Do you have a strong "Job Search Strategy"?

Let's face it; time and money are finite resources that are too precious to waste, and applying for jobs can be a lengthy and demanding process.

Having a strong job search strategy will allow you to secure a role more efficiently, saving you resources both physically and emotionally.

Are you ready for your job hunt?

If you answered yes to all of the questions above, congratulations! You're already well on your way to start your job search in New Zealand. 

If you answered no, there is no shame in admitting that! Most job seekers would only have an outdated CV ready, optimised for their home country. The important part is that now you are aware of what you need to know, before you can start your job hunt.

The New Zealand job market is ever changing and strategies that have worked in your home country may not be relevant here. You need someone you can trust, and who knows the ins and outs of the NZ job market.

How can our Job Search Professionals help?

The New Zealand Job market is very small and you might only get one chance at impressing the employer of your choice. Getting this right is of the essence.

Our Job Search professionals will work with you on maximising your potential in the New Zealand job market and expertly assist you in making sure you are optimising your opportunities. Click here to learn more about our services.

“In contrast to another Immigration consultancy that we contacted, your company offered a free webinar and an assessment, warm, approachable staff that communicates openly with potential customers. I found your website and it was very detailed and informative. I understand that your company is a fee for services provider, but that has not been conveyed as a prerequisite during the decision making process.”

At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to New Zealand job market by their Job Search team, and getting assistance until I got a job in the country. The Visa team would also follow me up on my pending documents, so I never felt left out. Truly recommended for those seeking out an option to live in New Zealand. Big thanks from me and my whole family for things NZIC did for us..!

NZIC helped me in my way to get a Visa and job search. They were always available to talk to and were open to all sorts of questions. No matter how random they were. Very friendly staff. And even when they had changes in employee and advisors, they always stayed professional and up to date. I can only say good things and recommend them highly.
