Job Ready Programme
The Job Ready Programme is for international students in Canterbury who are wanting to find employment in New Zealand after graduation.
The first part of the programme is a workshop or on online webinar that helps international students prepare for internships and employment in Canterbury. After the workshop, students have the opportunity to do a 1-1 session with our Job Ready Programme Co-ordinator, who will assist students to create an individual Job Search Strategy. After this, some students may be matched with businesses for internship projects. These internships may be done remotely or based at the business’ office.
The programme offers training and mentorship after placement for both the businesses and international interns involved, to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes are achieved.
There are also the resources available (below) for international students to learn more about the Kiwi work environment and how to find employment.
