It is about to become easier for international students to find work after study in New Zealand. Find out what the changes are and whether they apply to you.
With only one week to go until Semester 2 commences, our team is finalising our plans for over +100 employers to visit AUT.
Have you heard of employer presentations? It’s where employers come to AUT to chat about job opportunities. They offer insights about their industry or profession and talk about their company and the roles they have on offer, including graduate programmes, internships, co-op and work experience. They also explain the skills and attributes they look for in potential employees.
Let’s face it - writing your CV isn’t the most fun you’ll ever have but it’s critical if you want to land a job or get a foot in the door with a company.
Your CV is an essential tool to have for job search, whether it is for a part-time or casual job or your first real adult job after uni.
Who gets nervous going for an interview or meeting potential employers?
You can’t see but I’m nodding furiously yes at my keyboard. I’ll let you in on a secret. When I’ve gone for interviews or meet people I don’t know, my voice gets high-pitched. And I’m not talking an octave higher, I’m admitting to sounding like Mickey Mouse.
Your lifeline to the real world starts now. Employability! No problem, I’ll get my degree and be employable, right? Not quite!
Your degree is only part of the employability equation. Are you a good communicator, do you work well in teams and feel ready to leap into the real-world of work?
