For anyone just leaving University or arriving in the country as an immigrant, finding IT jobs in New Zealand is going to be difficult. Very difficult.
After applying for lots of positions, the average job seeker will get little response back and even less interviews. However… if you ask someone who has gone through Industry COnnect, then you might get a different response…
Take a look at some of the past graduates of our Job ready Programme, who have gone on to find IT jobs in New Zealand thanks to our teaching, coaching, connections and job hunting skills.

Test Automation Developer at SnapHire
I had been searching for my first job on and off for almost a year, as a fresh graduate I was very confident that my adequate grades from university could be enough to land me a graduate role or even a junior role. However, this was not the case. After being rejected for so many times I realized that good grades would only shows employer that perhaps you do quite well in assignments and exams, it’s definitely not going to impress them.

Test Analyst at Central Station Software
First of all Thanks to the Industry Connect team for giving me the opportunity to enhance my IT skills through their program. Though having couple of years experience back home in India initially it was a bit tough in getting the desired job for me in this beautiful country as I don’t have local experience and I am basically not aware of the work culture and people’s approach towards the things.But after being a part of this Programme I got to know thoroughly about the work culture and now I am at ease to handle things on my own. Thanks once again for your outstanding support throughout the time. Wishing good luck to the Industry Connect Team & all New Job Aspirants.

I came to the course looking to build a foundation in New Zealand software development market. An excellent program – I learned a lot. Very much liked the approach. The content was quite practical. This resulted in finding my first job in Auckland soon after completion of the technical sessions. I appreciate high level of support and flexibility as I currently benefit from the project internship while working at the same time.
