Job Finding Tips For New Zealanders Returning Home


If you are a New Zealander and live here most of your life, then sometimes you will feel the need to travel.

We are located in the southwest corner of the Pacific Ocean, about 12 million miles away from the land of our ancestors, which mainly came from Ireland and England.

Until about 30 years ago, travelling to these “remote” areas was a big problem. The long and arduous journey requires a lot of planning and is an expensive job.

However, as an adventurous race, we want to see this world! We are fascinated by what we know about buying real estate on a monopoly board, such as Park Lane, Bond Street and Piccadilly Circus, to name a few.

Foreign experience (OE)

Therefore, New Zealanders packed their bags, looked farther to see where their ancestors came from and paved a dilapidated road to Britain and the United States. Once we travel, we tend to be separated for at least two years, and this adventure is called “our OE” (overseas experience) and we all love it.

Two years later, most of us returned home to get along with relatives and friends again and set up our own families in our hometown. Some continued to create careers in the UK, some married British people and stayed behind. They have family and others. People like to travel.

Of course, today is another matter, because we have established good and real connections through the World Wide Web, so travel has become fast, convenient and convenient. The number of flights in a day makes travel very easy. People don’t even consider flying to the UK for business meetings and flying back the next day!

Find a job in New Zealand

Returning to New Zealand after a few years of absence has many benefits, but it also brings challenges. We may have lost contact with friends and colleagues, and need to re-establish ourselves in our home country again, adapt to another lifestyle, and most importantly, we need to find work.

How to find a job

If we keep in touch with friends and colleagues, it will be easier to get recommendations and establish contact. If not, we will have to start from scratch, and finding a job can be a long and arduous process. This may take 1 to 3 months, sometimes even longer!

You will need to update your resume to reflect all your skills, experience and qualifications; this is the number one priority. You need to visit various recruitment websites on the Internet to familiarize yourself with the current job market and salary scale, establish relationships with recruitment industry consultants, participate in interviews and make decisions.

Provide free job seeker services

Fortunately, many free services are provided to New Zealanders who return to work so that they can easily re-establish their careers and quickly find the jobs they need. Employers in New Zealand recognize that New Zealanders will face international business after returning home and attach great importance to the characteristics they bring to the local business sector.
