Feedback on the interview...

Gents and Ladies... I got the job.
First interview... :clap:

Now I have a work permit and PR application at NZIS. Hectic.

Luckily the Employer is registered with NZIS (accredited), so my Work Permit will hopefully be quick and painless.

Thanks again for all your advice in the forums! O0

I can not believe that they would go through this whole hassle of finally getting a job offer and then not coming back.

Does this happen often?

It does happen trust me  :(

One of the first question you get asked in the interview process "Do you have to return to SA or are you here to stay" that could make or break you.

Some guys and gals get away with it, as you have to wait for the WP, and claim they will apply in SA but never do.

It all comes down to the question how serious are you about relocating...

I have to agree with DV.  In my case, when I was still in SA, just about all the replies I got from recruiters and employers was to contact them when I was in the NZ.  And I was also drilled about how serious we were about relocating and I was even asked about whether I was considering moving to Oz.

So the employers and recruiters here are very wary of migrants not actually carrying through their move to NZ or having a hidden agenda of using NZ to get to Oz.  I believe that once you are here and that shows just how serious you are, then they will look at you.
