Internship and Jobs in New Zealand
If you are studying tertiary education, you must complete a practical on-the-job project to get your degree. This is done through an internship program that helps you to master special skills and make a head start in your career.
Interns are given a Work Visa for 6 months or so to complete their internship program. The project must be based on the course the interns have studied during their tertiary education. One particular employer will be assigned during this internship program where interns can choose to work part-time or full-time.
