    Default 3 weeks post

    Hi everyone,

    Landed in Auckland on 19th October 2010 with family without a job offer. Rented an appartment in auckland city and sorted mobile simcard, opened a bank account and updated CV on the first day. Started job hunting on seek.co.nz, trademe and some recruitment agencies. invited for three interviews and was offered a job as electronics engineer during second week. So far the job is amazing and i haven't got enough wonderful words to describe everyone at work. Feel blessed. Salaries are defenitly better than the UK at least for electronics engineers. Nearly double than what i was getting in the UK and the quality living is a bonus. My three year old daughter has started kindergarten today and she was insisting to stay there. She said I am going home but will must come tomorrow...Lol, she love it.

    Regards and wish u all, all the best

    @malangjan

    Interestingly enough i was just chatting with a friend with regard to job prospect for electronic engineers in NZ. Our impression is that since there are no electronic firms there, there is little demand for electronic engineers. Just curious, what industry are you going into? Care to share the situation there for EE engineers? It EE engineers in the Long Term skills shortage?

    Nice to hear great news from you in your new life there in NZ, and getting a job in just about 2 weeks!

    Indeed "LIFE IS FULL OF SURPRISES"

    This could be an inspiration to us, especially those who will soon be journeying
    their life there in NZ.

    Thanks for sharing!
