"It is a bit harder to find a job here than in the US. People use internet job listings, newspapers, and word of mouth. Numerous industries exist here. Small fashion designers seem to thrive in Wellington. One can find heaps of computer-industry jobs. The medical field is constantly searching for new employees. Government jobs also seem to be fairly abundant, as Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand," remarked another expat in Wellington, New Zealand.
