Moving, migrants visa and EOI

I have recently considered moving to NZ with my family. I started doing some research and it appears that without a job offer, which I don't have, it's best to apply for a migrants visa. I am an engineer with a magister engineer qualification and i do appear to have 160 points so I can request an EOI. Must I have my qualifications verified at this stage? It is rather expensive. The costs will add up quickly but need to be smart about it.

II started reaching out the businesses abroad but it does not look like they are interested unless you are already able to work legally. Agencies indicated that i must be in country first before they will assist in looking for job.
Also if anybody have similar experience, it would be good to hear from you about the dos and don'ts.

Many thanks
