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 Student Room: student discussion forum about Higher Education

"The Student Room is owned by a small but perfectly formed Brighton based company called Acumen PI, but soon to morph into The Student Room Group.

We're all passionate about The Student Room and our sister sites, and love working on them. Generally we see our role as facilitators, steering our sites forward in exciting ways, but we're under no illusions that it's the community of members that make The Student Room special and unique in the vast world of social media."

Guggenheim Forum: Between the Over- and Underdesigned

"Guggenheim Forum is new series of moderated online discussions catalyzing intelligent conversation on the arts, architecture, and design. Several times each year, experts from a variety of fields inquire into and debate topics related to the museum's exhibition program.

Each forum unfolds over the course of two weeks. During that period, visitors to Guggenheim.org are encouraged to write in comments. Select responses will be posted for consideration by the panelists and to contribute to the overall dialogue. One or more live chat sessions take place during each forum, allowing visitors to communicate directly with one of our experts in a lively, immediate approach to the subject at hand.
...
The inaugural Guggenheim Forum, titled Between the Over– and Underdesigned, addresses the subject of how design can enhance or detract from everyday life. Frank Lloyd Wright believed in making his buildings harmonious and integrated with their environment. How might architects, designers, urban planners, and the rest of us make such an attempt today, particularly in the planet's burgeoning cities? Our experts will touch on a variety of questions: What is a well–designed space? How do we measure its value–economically, sociologically, emotionally, or in other ways? To what extent should the person who uses a space be involved in helping design it, or in creating his or her own space? What can we learn from different design solutions throughout history and across cultures?"
(The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation)

[Guggenheim's forum titled 'Over– and Underdesigned' runs between the June 22 through July 2]
