(VIDEO) NEW ZEALAND Offers Free Flights, Jobs, Citizenship To Techies. If You Want A Free Flight To New Zealand, All You Need Is A Job Interview. I know what you’re thinking: Boy, I can’t even get a job interview in the country I LIVE in, and you’re telling me New Zealand’s going to fly me out to Hobbit-world FOR FREE to hire me? Kind of, if you’re the best of the best in the tech world. Wellington, which is called the tech and innovation capital of the South Pacific, has a program called “Looksee Wellington,” and they’re giving 100 people free flights and accommodation to visit the city for a week.
These companies hope to find people to fill open positions in software development, digital production and creative directors. After your week of exploring and interviewing, you’ll be given a job from one of the companies, guaranteed. Bonus points? There’s a beach nearby and it’s the craft beer capital of the country.
The only catch is you have to attend job interviews with tech companies, which are pre-arranged. One company that calls Wellington home is Weta Digital, which did the visual effects for both “Avatar” and “Lord of the Rings.”
God, if only I had skills other than weaving these beautiful sentences together in such gorgeous prose for the internet. If you want in on this sweet, sweet deal, create a profile on the LookSee website. The employers in Wellington will scour the website for their ideal candidates and whoever wracks up the most nominations will be flown out to Wellington.
