    Default Is New Zealand a country to build a career as an engineer?

    Hi all.

    My name is Konstantinos, I am 23 years old and I am from Greece. Most of you know about the financial problem in Greece and European Union, so I am looking for a country to continue my life.

    I am studying Electrical and Computer Engineer in Greece and I am in fifth year which is the last year.

    My question is:

    Is New Zealand a country to build a career as an engineer?

    Thank you.

    As per new projects startup and statistics from hiring agencies, NZ would be in high needs by this year. A large work force is foreseen for Christchurch rebuild. Yesterday newspaper highlight another project kickstart building a new motorway link where 2.5 km underground.... so these are highlights I believe asking for more work force..

    However at the same time there are ppl still hunting for jobs already in NZ.

    You can gather such information for satisfaction but do take action if you want to explore and take challenge to arrive NZ.
    In my case I have been waiting for my trun for ~6months... so this is as it is everywhere!

    Saqib78,
    Looking for the job 6 months means the market is low , really low !
    It's not like this in most of the OECD countries and New Zealand is part of them , so they are some expectation from it's economy that are not met so far by local market.
    As for Christchurch rebuild -it's a bluff . Nothing is going on there and probably will not start untill Australian insurance companies will deliver money for the projects. Most of the works there just announced but not financed and far from the start.
    Even demolition works of buildings damaged by earthquake are moving too slow.
    I'm agree with you that coming to this Paradise one should consider supporting funds for at least 6 months, but it's abnormal in terms of job market. So if there are better options -explore them first.
