Another test analyst job secured with our help!

Shruti’s story is a familiar one here at Industry Connect. After obtaining her degree, she worked as a software tester right after college. She then moved to New Zealand and did a post-graduate diploma in computer and information science. “Right after my graduation, I took a break for one year.” She explains. “Then I started applying for jobs and I got rejected. So many rejections.”

A year in the It world is a long time, so it’s not uncommon for someone to have trouble finding work after a break. “Eventually I heard from New Zealand Immigration that they were sponsoring a few

international students for the Industry Connect programme.” Shruti says. “I did research about the company and I was very interested, so when this opportunity came by, I was very excited and applied for it. Fortunately, I got selected and I was part of Industry Connect.”

SO how did she find Industry Connect? “Very interesting and a very steep learning curve,” she says. “I had done information processing before, but I had experience with automation testing. Whereas, after coming here, I learned so much about automation testing, different knowledge and how to work in a working environment, and what exactly a work environment in New Zealand is about.”

“There were so many other things which I got to learn. There were some interpersonal skills sessions going on. Andrew and Trey, they took some sessions, and they have so much experience. It was a learning experience, yeah.”

What advice would Shruti give to people in a similar position to her? “I would say no matter if you get your CV done professionally, no matter if you think your CV is great, or your technical skills are under par, international students don’t exactly know what New Zealand is looking for.

“The people at Industry Connect- they help you and guide you. They look at our CVs, they give us some advice and some suggestions. And they point us to the direction where the New Zealand IT industry is looking for.”

Great advice Shruti, thank you and good luck in your new job as a test analyst for Fiserv!
