Well, that depends on who you ask! If you ask someone who just came out of University and went straight into the world trying to find IT jobs in New Zealand, then the answer is going to be tough. Very tough. You’ll find they applied for lots of positions, got little response and even less interviews. However… if you ask someone who has participated in our Internship Programme, then you might get a different response…
Take a look at some of the past interns who have gone on to find IT jobs in New Zealand thanks to our teaching, coaching, connections and job hunting skills.
Roy Yang is now a Developer at Serato! Roy says:
“I want to thank you to provide me with this program, it made a huge difference to my job hunting (20+ applied, 2 interviews, vs. 9 applied, 8 interviews). Unfortunately having a new full-time job on top of the internship project is a little too tiring for me. I’m sure you understand, new job demands lots of energy and lots of new things to learn.
Thanks for the program, if you need to ask me anything just email me.”
Uma is now a Software Developer at Intergen!
“As an Immigrant, this program is very useful for me to showcase my skills and gain NZ real time experience and references which are very important for the Job search in NZ.
Through this program I have not only learnt up-to-date technology, but also implemented the same in real time project.
Another important thing is, I got an opportunity to meet different level of people from NZ industry who shared their experiences and I am able to make connections with them.
Thanks for the programme for giving me this opportunity.”
Hayden Morris now works as a Software Developer at Telco FourthMedia!
The time I spent on the program helped to strengthen my understanding of Microsoft technologies which is hugely useful in my current position.
The program also gave me a better understanding of the requirements of employers and how to sell myself to a potential employer better. If you want to learn about the current trends in technology and how to improve your chances in a job interview I would recommend this programme.
Yuki Seno is now a Web Developer at Queensberry Ltd!
“Finally I’ve got a job offer, and I am waiting for my start day. I wrote the feedback below.
Thank you for this program. I learnt not only Microsoft technologies, but also job hunting tips in New Zealand. We had different types of speakers who gave me advices and words from their own experiences.
The experience of commercial project is very important to find IT jobs in New Zealand and there are a lot of opportunities for .NET developers in New Zealand. We can learn .NET development knowledge and get a commercial experience in using it. So I recommend this program for someone who wants to get involved in IT industry. Thank you for your help. I am happy that I attended the program.”
