Read what our students have to say about their experience at EmployNZ:

“The Employment Placement Service course kept me motivated and positive during the job-hunting process. The course increased my confidence and helped me to keep trying. The course taught me valuable skills and helped me secure my role. I’m now working as an administrator at Osteria Restaurant.”

Rachel Tyler

Administrator - Osteria Restaurant

“I’ve learnt how to be assertive and my communication skills have improved heaps. I enjoyed the support and help from all the tutors and even some of the students. EmployNZ has such a positive atmosphere. I used to be very shy but now I’m confident and more sociable. I’m a student ambassador and an active member of Young Connex – a youth leadership group.”
