Finding A Job In New Zealand or Australia – The Big Secret Revealed…
Today I want to give away a very big secret about finding a job in New Zealand or Australia as an immigrant.
This is especially applicable if you are looking to find a job from a distance.
This is going to be a very short video, but the information in here is going to be very, very powerful.
So, listen closely.
Before I give away the secret about finding a job in New Zealand or Australia, I want to tell you a little story.
A little story before I give away the secret
A few years ago, I worked for a corporate firm in New Zealand as a remuneration consultant. Our work involved the job markets in both New Zealand and Australia.
As a remuneration consultant what I did was gather data from other employers in New Zealand and Australia.
We would then analyse that data and make recommendation to employers in both countries on the remuneration packages to offer their employees.
In other words, how much to pay them, which benefits to offer and how to measure and reward their performance and give them pay rises, etc.
In this analysis of the job markets is a big secret about finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
The analysis in the job markets
What we found in the job markets were two things that is of note here:
The vast majority of employers – 97% in New Zealand and as much as 82% in Australia were small traditional business. That is businesses who employ less than 20 people.
The vast majority of the employers – over 85% of them – would hire people NOT for skills, experience or qualifications, but for attributes such as attitude, personality, dependability, loyalty, enthusiasm and interest.
Therefore, it was interesting to note that these small employers had a smaller attrition rate than the big corporate companies. In other words, people stayed with them longer. Not surprisingly because they give more attention to the individual needs of the person, instead of treating them like just another number.
They also prefer to hire and train the person with the right attitude, instead of having a highly skilled, qualified and experienced person with the wrong attitude.
These thousands small businesses made up the backbone of these economies.
Herein lies the secret to finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
The secret to finding a job in New Zealand or Australia
Given this information then, the secret in finding a job with the majority of these employers is NOT by sending a CV which depicts and is focused on your skills, experience and qualifications.
Rather, it is getting to these people with the human to human interaction and displaying the things which they highly value: attributes such as a positive attitude, enthusiasm, interest, dependability, responsibility, etc.
That is the secret – getting through to these people require a different STRATEGY than sending your CV to them.
Yes, they would ask for a CV, but if you are a person who does more and can achieve the human to human contact with them, you are going straight to the front of the job queue.
You will be ahead of others who just send a CV in their attempt of finding a job in New Zealand or Australia
The problem for offshore immigrants
As a prospective immigrant who is still offshore, you have a problem.
How do you get to interact with these businesses personally if you cannot visit your destination country?
Your answer is duel fold:
The right tools – a unique immigrant’s LinkedIn profile and
Applying it in conjunction with the right unique immigrant’s job finding strategies. There are a number of unique immigrant’s job finding strategies, such as the visa sponsored jobs strategy, the relationship building strategy and the direct approach strategy
These strategies will have to be applied correctly to be successful at finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
Every single person who I have helped and who have followed this approach has been successful at finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
The secret is this:
It is not in just having a strategic immigrant’s CV and Unique Immigrant’s LinkedIn Profile. The secret is in what you DO with what you have.
Just sending your CV – and also the wrong CV – to job ads will not be successful at finding a job in New Zealand or Australia because of this secret. You need a strategic immigrant’s CV.
The job markets are made up of small businesses who value the personal touch.
If you cannot find a way to apply that personal touch by applying the correct tools and strategies, you will be unsuccessful at finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
This is applicable in New Zealand and Australia, and to some extent in Canada as well, or anywhere where the economy is made up of these small businesses.
I do not just create CVs and LinkedIn profiles specifically designed for immigrants. I also provide a research report for your special situation and many other resources. These all need to be used together for finding a job in New Zealand or Australia.
