Here is a list of factors one should be mindful of in order to be all set for their respective jobs in the New Zealand marketplace:
Get familiar with the New-Zealand workplace environment:
Try to understand the workplace environment of New Zealand, this will be handy for you as it will show your employer that you know how the kiwi workplace functions.
Learn the difference between English and Kiwi-English:
The style and accent of the English language spoken by Kiwis is slightly different than the normal English, so an individual no matter how well versed he is in English, might experience some problems in understanding the local Kiwi lingo. It is advised to get comfortable with the Kiwi English beforehand to avoid any problems.
Try some volunteering work:
Taking part in jobs that a volunteering based is a great way to make connections and to get familiarized with the way New-Zealand works. Also, it helps out the individual to gain experience in skills that may turn out to be valuable when he/she applies for the actual job.
