Expat Experiences of New Zealand Employers Hiring

"During November 2012 there were over 120 comments posted largely by expat and returned Kiwis in a KEA group LinkedIn discussion on 'How do employers view those coming home after an extended period of time?' The comments centred around a theme that NZ employers appear fearful of hiring expats and don't recognise the skills and global connectivity opportunities which they can bring.

Reading through the comments one can identify many factors which matched those contained in material released on my website two years ago looking at the cultural impediments to growth of the New Zealand economy. So taking on board the strongly expressed hopes by many contributors that something would be done to highlight this issue of expat under–utilisation I have prepared this paper which will be referenced in the BNZ Weekly Overview ... The material will also form a backgrounder to comments to be included in my talks around New Zealand during 2013."

(Tony Alexander, BNZ Chief Economist, 30 November 2012)

The #WebGradEngine: web design employment aggregator

"Over the last few days, and as my graduation has got closer, I've wanted to increase my job searching capabilities. What better way to do this than through a single page that updates in real–time!

Using a custom search in Twitter and multiple 'Web Design jobs' RSS feeds combined into one RSS feed, I'm creating some sort of a custom TweekDeck for job hunting.

As I slowly develop it into including more RSS feeds and better custom searches through Twitter I hope that this will be a product that can help any type of Web Designer looking for work.

Being released as Version 1, I know it's not perfect but the information it's gathering is so I wanted to be able to share it as early as possible.

Feel free to add suggestions of RSS Feeds or particular Twitter searches you might use. I am wanting to add in multiple searches like 'need web & designer' being one, 'want, web & designer' being another and 'hire, web & designer' being a third. These are ones I've used in the past and have worked.

I've also considered a Freelance section and a Professional section. Freelance being more small jobs picked up through Twitter, then Professional being more permanent job related."
