“Do you know how hard hunting job in New Zealand is? I would say that It is really hard, I spent seven months to apply probably hundreds positions. Most of them reply me with saying: “unfortunately …”, and even there was no any interview in the first five months. On the other hand, I could say that it is not difficult if you could walk on a right direction.
When I heard of Industry Connect, I realized that the course is exactly what I need. The programme teaches me almost everything I should know, from setting up social profiles and how to perform on interviews, to SDLC and programing foundations, which are all important for hunting job in New Zealand.
More importantly, in the second part of the course, in order to be a good team player, I need to interact with team members, asking or answering questions, reporting what I have done to other interns, which means I have to speak English publicly and entirely every day.
In addition, I have applied some new technologies in live projects, such as Knockout.js, Kendo UI and Signal R and I have been involved in the entire process of SDLC, such as interface design, frontend and backend implementation and testing.
Just after two months, I am becoming more confident to talk about technologies I used in the period of internship in English. Meanwhile, I have got more than five-hundred connections on my LinkedIn and receiving many calls and messages from HRs and recruiters. Eventually, a New Zealand based global company offered me a full time permanent role as a web application developer.
During sixteen weeks of the course, I have been involved in three projects and learnt lots of new skills, some of them, such as how to play in a team, I cannot learn on my own. I really appreciate what Industry Connect have done for me.
I believe that Industry Connect can help more job hunters to start up and achieve a great success in the near future. Awesome!”
