Do your research
Talk to our Competenz careers team (0800 526 1800), a schools careers advisor and people doing jobs you're interested in. Check out the Careers NZ website.
Volunteer for work experience
It's a great way to check out a career, gain some skills and build your networks. And if you shine, you may even get a job offer.
