WORK CONNECT

Help for migrants struggling to find a job in New Zealand

Work Connect is a free programme to help migrants prepare for the New Zealand job market. Funded by Immigration New Zealand, the programme is available in Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Christchurch.

How to get interviews

If you’re applying for lots of jobs but not getting any interviews, your CV may not be the right style for New Zealand employers.

The Work Connect programme provides a step-by-step guide on how to improve your CV and cover letter, and how to tailor them for each job application.

How to get job offers

If you’re getting interviews but not job offers, you may not be providing employers with the information they need in your interview.

The Work Connect Programme provides comprehensive coaching on how to prepare for a New Zealand job interview.

How to find a job in New Zealand that uses your skills and knowledge

If you’re not finding a job in New Zealand that uses your skills and knowledge, you may need to change your job hunting strategy.

The Work Connect Programme provides information about how the New Zealand job market works, how it is different from other countries, and strategies on how to use your skills and knowledge to impress New Zealand employers.
