    Default Looking to come to New Zealand for 4mo to a year a few questions

    Hey I hope this is the correct place to post this. I just graduated from college in the US and I'm looking to come down to New Zealand for a period of time between 4 months to a year. I'm not looking for any certain job just something to support me while I'm there and to let me travel and explore New Zealand. I was wondering if anyone here had any advice on what type of programs were available for things such as this. Also if anyone had any type of general advice whatever you could enlighten me with would be greatly appreciated.

    Yea I've looked into the working holiday visa. I was more trying to figure out how/where would be good places to find employment while I was planning on being there. If anyone has any advice please let me know.

    Tanner and welcome to MoveToNZ.

    It would be difficult to advise you where to go to find work without knowing your itinerary if you're going to be travelling around the country. It's also difficult not knowing what sort of work you'd be looking for.

    No doubt the most jobs would be found in the cities and larger towns but there are opportunities to find casual seasonal work in the fruit-growing areas and also in both the summer and winter there would be jobs in some of the tourist resorts.

    Here's some reading for you.....
