Back again with some more positive news.

DH posted for a job application in ACK and not even 5 minutes later, he got a call from one of the people there (I think it is a private firm as opposed to an employment agency). DH had a long conversation with this guy on the phone!  :heeha:

I interrogated him afterwards and he told me that this guy just needs to speak to one of the other people there (can't remember the names of the roles right now but they sounded important) and will get back to DH. Not even 1 hour later and DH got a call. Just need to confirm that my DH skills are what they are looking for to avoid a wasted flight to ACK otherwise his chances of going for an interview are extremely good!  :heeha:

So we went out to get DH hair cut and buy work clothes and shoes for him - needed to do it anyway - but had even more reason to do it sooner.

Will let you guys know how things develop with finding work but thanks for all the good luck wishes, they are paying off.  O0

I can barely believe how things have been working out for us from the start when we decided to immigrate... I mean house sold in 1 month, car sold in 1 month, got a premium economy flight to here, having positive feedback and the first working day of us being in NZ already got a potential interview - COME ON JOB OFFER!!!

My DH and I have been applying like crazy today so hoping to get more responses tomorrow. Got a few positive responses this morning but no definite interviews... yet!

Will keep ya'll posted.  O0

Aside from all the job applying, we might be going to the beach on Friday, early evening, just to chill a bit so that we don't burn ourselves out just sitting in front of the PC all day applying our lives away. Looking forward to it.

Chat soon
