Edenz Colleges Auckland
CAREER SERVICES

At EDENZ Colleges, we have trained, experienced and caring career support staff to assist students with their career journey. There are a wide range of career services available to students from the time they arrive, right through to beyond graduation. We understand and appreciate that students wish to support themselves during their studies. To assist students with this, we have a Career Notice Board with job postings direct from employers and up to date vacancies from various websites. Career Services are also able to provide exclusive part-time and full-time job leads directly to students who have registered as job seekers. Students will participate in interactive career training during their studies on CV writing, cover letter writing, job search, interviews and online branding. During these classes, students will have the opportunity to prepare their CV and a cover letter as well as practice their interview skills. Career Services work across all of the faculties to create industry connections, job leads, industry visits as well as finding guest speakers and advisory board members. Students are invited to additional fairs and career events throughout the year that can assist them to build their career. Should students wish to have one to one meetings with a Career Counsellor, this can be arranged by emailing careerservices@edenz.ac.nz.

ESOL JOBS THROUGH TEACH IN ASIA

EDENZ Colleges have partnered with Teach in Asia in order to support our TESOL graduates who are looking for work in Asia. Teach in Asia was established in 2015 to provide adventurous New Zealanders a safe and stable means to work and experience life in East Asia. We can find New Zealanders teaching positions in either public or private schools in cities or country side locations. Teaching English in foreign country is a great way to immerse yourself in a new language and culture, experience new foods and see new sights. Many people who have taught in Asia return home with amazing stories and are generally more open minded. The life experience as well as the additional language and cultural competencies which were picked up along the way is also a good foundation when looking for a job after returning home.

Teach in Asia

Currently we have a range of exciting ESL positions available across China. Our service is free for eligible candidates. Our knowledgeable team will help you find a school, assist you in securing a favourable contract and guide you through the confusing visa application process. To ensure our teachers are not sent to Asia unprepared we will provide a country specific induction so you know what to expect when you arrive. Throughout your contract if you have any concerns we are available to act as an intermediary as well as provide you with a work reference when you return to New Zealand.

Applicants need to be native English speakers and have a passport from New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada or the United States. Applicants must have a minimum of a Bachelors Degree (generally the major doesn’t matter) and a TESOL qualification is recommended.
