What are the main job search challenges?

Finding a job in a new country is a huge challenge. Apart from the Catch 22 Dilemma - can't get a visa without a job but can't get a job without a visa - there are a number of other issues that will affect your job search.

Difficulties our clients face during their job hunt are based on two main factors:

1. Migrants are not familiar with the New Zealand job market and New Zealand's business etiquette; and

2. New Zealand employers do not fully understand and appreciate the professional  background from overseas job applicants and their own role in the visa application process."  

Some of the challenges resulting from being new to the New Zealand job market are:

  • a lack of proven New Zealand work experience
  • a lack of professional networks and social capital
  • a lack of information and a good understanding of their specific industry in New Zealand
  • a lack of recognition of international qualifications and/or the opportunities to upgrade
  • a lack of understanding of how to navigate the New Zealand employment process
  • a lack of New Zealand specific English language terminology
  • a lack of confidence in a new environment
