    Talking Is anyone going to register for the LookSee Wellington job recruitment program?

    This looks like a great opportunity for people in tech interested in Wellington! They are flying out 100 people, expenses paid, in early May for interviews and schmoozing.

    Hi I am new here. My husband and I are currently living in the UK but looking at moving to New Zealand this year.

    My husband has registered with the LookSee Wellington programme. But he also applied online for other Engineering jobs around New Zealand.
    That's fantastic news yesno. Congratulations for getting the job offer!!

    Welcome, Suzie2017! Good luck with the job applications :-) Do you have any areas where you would particularly like to settle?

    Hi Juniper, thank you yes we would like to settle in the north, possibly around Auckland as the climate seems to be more pleasant up there we would try and find somewhere to rent at first.

    We also have two dogs that we are getting ready just now with vaccinations and dog passports. Hoping it's possible to rent somewhere with a small and medium sized dog.

    Thanks everybody! It wasn't that easy. Got many rejections (because of... no visa... you know) but there are companies who are familiar with the visa process and who are accepting delays and who are ok with hiring remotely. In the end, as a software developer it is super easy but, still, it is nerve wrecking process.

    I wish you all good look and hopefully you get selected and enjoy the free trip!

    Wow, that's a nice quick turnaround for your visa, yesno! Congratulations!! I'm sure having an accredited employer makes all the difference.
