    Default Kiwis are desperate. They need us to come!

    This article in todays NZ Herald amussed me a lot. Here it is for you to rise new hopes and cheer you up. Labour maket doesn't seem to be so saturated as one might think.

    Few candidates lining up, even for 'dream jobs'


    23.05.05 1.00pm


    An Auckland-based recruitment agency says there are simply too few suitable people in the labour pool to fill a growing number of vacancies.

    Synergy Consulting is looking for candidates for what appears to be a dream job, including a month's training in Paris with accommodation and all expenses paid, a company car and a six figure salary.

    Managing director Belinda Staff says that no suitably skilled talent is coming forward to take up the role.

    She says New Zealand's employment market is in a critical situation and people with key skills can virtually pick and choose the positions they are applying for.

    That is promising Maka. :icon_biggrin: The agent we saw at the emigrate show told us they are desperate but I think some of it is a sales ploy for you to hand over a large amount of money for them to get you a job.
    I suppose it's worth it if you lose money and start eating into your savings while trying to find work on your own. What does everyone else think about agents finding you work or getting your visa's?

    I have talked to some of the agencies and the most common response was "We will be glad to see you when you are in NZ". Fair enough.
    If your occupation is not desperately needed as such, no one would hire you without the interview, I suppose.

    Taffy, how much? ::):

    Well, all the information dished out has always been free, with the exception of a report for sale on the main website, and a section for donations, but those are there to help pay for this little monster! (The website, that is!)

    That's not a lot to using an agent not, not a lot of money! I'm confusing myself here never mind everyone else :icon_eek: icon_exclaim.gif
    They quoted us ?5,000 but I dont know what else they might add on.
    Don't think I'll bother i'm just popping in to Hamilton for Taffy to look over the forms! :icon_biggrin:
