    Default IT Job Search from Overseas - Seeking assistance

    My residence visa is approved and planning to search for jobs till the passport endorsement is over from India. I have around 9 Years of experience in Software testing and QA and worked major for Banks and Insurance clients / Applications. If somebody knows any employer who considers overseas applicantsplease let me know.

    Register directly under career sections of employers like Vodafone, Telecom, BNZ, Westpac, HP etc to start with. I know of people who were employed from overseas with few of these companies.

    Sun777's advice is excellent. Additionally, register on www.seek.co.nz, www.trademe.co.nz/jobs and with specialist IT Recruitment Agencies. In which city are you hoping to settle? I might have some contacts. Cheers. Karen

    Copying all the above, you need to set an estimated arrival date in NZ and update your details stating that you are having a Visa now and you need to schedule an interview to be arriving soon to NZ for face-face interview. it would be great if you can upodate your address to be one of your freinds in NZ. Good luck in your search.

    Not usually, unless they have a sideline as an employment agency also. Those are businesses who specialize in advising people which visa to go for and what paperwork they need to prepare when applying.

    Make sure you have ISTQB advance or atleast basic certification as only they are preferred...in IT experience must be backed with certifications in NZ
