After a long process and four interviews, Peter got an email with a job offer.
“I came from South Africa at the end of January this year,” explains Peter. “and after looking on Trade Me and Seek for jobs I was getting the usual response. While searching jobs I came across the Industry Connect website.” After signing up with us and with only 20 days left on his visa, Peter landed a job as a full time developer!

“It is almost a year that I have been working as a web developer at MH Interactive. Development is a dynamic area in which new technologies come out so fast. To be a productive developer, we should keep ourselves updated by constantly learning these new technologies. That is why I attended the Job Ready Programme courses again. It enables me to gain more skills, while working at the same time. Industry connect welcomed me with open arms. It is a great feeling to be connected to the wider community of web developers. Thanks for the continued support!”

“Thanks to Industry Connect for helping me find a job. It is really hard to find your first IT job in New Zealand. But Industry Connect gave great training to help me to improve my technical skills and also work on real projects with a senior developer. They helped me a lot. This is the reason I found an IT job in Auckland. Thanks again. Best Wishes to Industry Connect.”
