Want a job in the Public Sector? Get Recruitment Ready

We know the job application process can often be complicated, but with our new employer application series for Pacific students, they don’t have to be!

Throughout May, our Māori and Pacific team are hosting a series of career sessions with different Public Sector and Government organisations who want to help you ‘Get Recruitment Ready’!

Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), Tupu Tai and NZ Police are all joining us. Expect to find out:

  • Top tips to navigate the application process
  • How to smash the interview process
  • What life working in the Public Sector is all about
  • How they overcame some of the challenges M&P often encounter in the workplace

Taking place via zoom, and in person, these sessions are open for Pacific students from all disciplines. To find out what sessions could be for you, check out the full schedule below and click on the links to rgister for the full information about each workshop.

Want to ensure you’re super prepared for meeting potential future employers? Come along to our pre-career talanoa with Pepe Afeaki and Lorraine Henry on Monday 24 May to find out what to expect during the week ahead and how they will work with you to coach and support you!
