Working Experience in New Zealand
This was the first time for me to do farm works, seriously it was super tired but I get used to it after 1 to 2 weeks working. I got lucky got a job offer in a lily bulbs packing company in Rakaia before I arrived and my 2nd job as a picker in a tomato hothouse near Auckland. Fairness is promoted in the workplace, in New Zealand. Everyone is treated equally and the atmosphere is comfortable, you can truly have the relaxation feeling of working holiday no matter how hard the work is.
There is not much information can be found from Internet (try Trademe and SEEK) about job seeking and other information about living in New Zealand… Making more friends is the easiest way to get the info. In many small towns, people post things like car for sell, room for rent, job available on the notice board in convenient shop, supermarket or the community center. Kiwis (local people) and backpackers here are friendly and willing to share their experience to you about job, travel, accommodation… everyone helps each other out, this really warm my heart.
