Job finding tips for New Zealanders returning home

Career,Free Web Resources
Most New Zealanders travel overseas and stay for at least two years. When they feel the need to return home there are often big changes to make. It takes a bit of adjusting to settle back down to life in New Zealand and finding a job can be challenging if you haven’t kept up with your work colleagues during the time away.

If you are a native New Zealander and have lived here for most of your life at some stage you will feel the need to travel.

Our location in the south west corner of the Pacific Ocean is approximately 12,000 thousand miles away from the land of our forefathers who mostly came from Ireland and England.

Up until about thirty years ago, travelling to these “remote” areas was a big deal. A long and arduous journey that took a lot of planning and was an expensive exercise.

But being an adventurous race of people, we wanted to see the world! We were fascinated by the places we knew only by the purchase of property on the Monopoly Board, places like Park Lane, Bond Street and Piccadilly Circus to name just a few.

Overseas Experience (OE) So New Zealanders packed their bags and looked further afield to see where their ancestors came from and paved a well-worn track to the United Kingdom and the United States. Once we made the journey we tended to stay away for at least two years and this adventure became known as “our OE” (overseas experience) – and we all wanted it.

After two years most of returned home to be close again to our family and friends and start their own families in the homeland, some went on to create careers in the UK, some married Brits and stayed and had families and others got the travel bug and never came home.

Of course today it is a different story, and because we are well and truly connected through the World Wide Web, travel is fast, easy and convenient. The sheer numbers of flights available on any one day have made travelling a breeze and people think nothing of flying to the UK for a business meeting and flying back the next day!

Coming back to New Zealand after several years away has many advantages, but it also presents its challenges. We may have lost contact with friends and work colleagues and need to re-establish ourselves once more in our native land, get accustomed to a different way of life and most importantly we need to find employment.

How to find employment If we have kept up a network of friends and colleagues it is will easier to reconnect and get referrals to make connections, if not, we will have to start from scratch and finding employment can be a long and difficult process. It can take anywhere from 1 – 3 months and sometimes more!

You will need to have your CV updated to reflect all your skills, experience and qualifications – this is the number one priority. You will want to visit the various recruitment sites on the internet looking at the current job market and salary scales, establish relationships with recruitment industry consultants, attend interviews and make decisions.

Fortunately, there are many free services available for New Zealanders returning home looking for work that make it easy to re-establish themselves and find their desired employment quickly. Employers in New Zealand acknowledge the exposure that New Zealanders returning home have had to international business and greatly value the attributes they bring to the local business sector.

New Kiwis is a Chamber of Commerce initiative designed to tap into the wealth of international talent living in New Zealand and are looking for employment.

You’ll be happy to know that many New Zealand Businesses appreciate the benefits of diversity within their organisations. It can be a useful asset having people on staff that speak a foreign language and understand a different culture, particularly if they’re targeting international markets.

At New Kiwis, we connect employers with expat kiwis and new immigrants. We provide valuable information and resources intended to ease the burden of finding employment in New Zealand.

So, register on our website and view our listings. Perhaps we are that magical job finder you’ve been wishing for.
