The Alumni Connect Programme is an opportunity for tertiary students to connect with a previous international student who now work fulltime in the Wellington region.

Gain real insights from someone who has already been through a similar situation to you when they finished their tertiary study and went on to seeking fulltime work.

How it works

Students and alumni need to register for the programme via the forms below. You will then be matched and introduced to your alumni match who is currently working in the region. Once introduced, you and your alumni match will organise when, how (via Zoom, Skype, Facebook Video call, phone) and the date you will meet.

What can you discuss?

This is your chance to gain insights from alumni on how they got into the workforce. Discussions might include:

  • The alumni journey through study to employment 
  • Challenges, solutions and achievements
  • What helped the alumni get to where they are today 
  • Tips for job hunting in New Zealand 
  • Suggestions on how to get noticed in the workforce 
  • What other experiences did they have working in New Zealand, voluntary or paid
