Another Success story from Industry Connect!

Galen is a Chinese national with experience as a Business Analyst, but when he came to New Zealand to do his Masters, he realised it wasn’t going to be easy to get a job.

Until he came to us.

We are happy to announce Galen just secured a job as a test analyst.

“After graduating I joined a company in China for 3 years as a business analyst. After that I came to New Zealand to study my Masters. At that time, I tried very hard at every opportunity to become an analyst, but I found it very hard because I didn’t have any local experience. They also had strong requirements about English, so that’s why I got nothing at that time.”

“But at that moment, I found there were good opportunities at Industry Connect, and I also saw many successful examples of people here finding a job. That’s why I came here, to get more experience.”

At first I just had some experience as a business analyst, but after coming to Industry Connect, I also leared lots of things about programming, because to be a tester here, you also need to know about automation testing, including C#.”

“This is a real company, including real projects and also lots of new leads, new features and new functions. So I had to learn how to use these new skills.”

At first the theory was totally different from China, so that’s why I didn’t get any response from companies at first. Here at Industry Connect, everyone talked to me about lots of things, and about how to write a good CV here in New Zealand. And I also learned lots of interview skills, which has been very useful for me to get a job.”

“There were also a lot of reference checks, and I’m very lucky here, because everyone here aren’t just employees, they’re my friends, and they supported me, it means a lot.”

Industry Connect can’t guarantee you 100% you will get a job in It in NZ, but they can show you the door and help you get through it. After that you need to keep positive, never give up and keep trying. I definitely recommend Industry Connect to everyone, I enjoyed it here, and I have a job now because of Industry Connect’s efforts.”
