 Olia’s Insights.

Hello, my friends! Olia here with you, braving the chilly winds of a New Zealand spring. It’s been a lovely and sunny experience, but alas, the weather got the better of me, and I find myself battling a stubborn cold. Nevertheless, I’m determined to share some exciting updates and insights with you.

Last Week’s Recap
In our line of work—international recruitment and career consulting— I encountered some great questions and received wonderful feedback. I believe in sharing success stories and valuable information with you, and today is no exception.
Last week, I posted two job ads—one for a Formwork Carpenter and another for General Construction Workers. The latter is specifically aimed at those in New Zealand who have unfortunately lost their jobs and are seeking new opportunities. This position offers more than just a job; it includes food and accommodation, a testament to our commitment to supporting individuals through challenging times.
Crafting the Perfect Application: A Success Story
I was thrilled to receive an outstanding application for the Formwork Carpenter position. The applicant had carefully listened to the advice and insights shared here, presenting their file exactly as recommended. This, my friends, is the power of following instructions. I could clearly understand the candidate’s skills and expertise, making it an easy decision to move them forward in the recruitment process.
