In all honesty it depends on your area of skill and experience.
The only employers that will be remotely interested in potential immigrants who are still overseas without a visa are the ones who desperately need you here working as they cannot find the skilled personnel here.

If for instance - just as an example, you are a computer programmer or into IT, the competition for jobs is massive and that is between people who are already here as NZ citizens, NZ Resident visa holders. People who already have the right to live and work here.
Employers can pick and choose from many applicants and they would rather not employ someone who quite frankly may never come over. There's also ethical reasons......jobs should always be offered to a person already here and able to work before a potential immigrant. Doesn't always happen but generally it Dora's.
Why would an employer want to get involved with Immigration stuff if they don't have to......more cost and more risk.
If your skill and experience is in something more specialised - for example a Geothermal drilling expert where there are maybe only a handful of these around the world, an employer looking for that person will bend over backwards and do everything they could to employ them, assist with visas etc.

All that said though, lots of immigrants without visas, who are still overseas do get jobs here.
It comes from lots of work, research, letters and cv posting. You have to make yourself as attractive a prospect as a person who is already here.
Point out to them that you have submitted your visa application already and explain that a job offer would just mean that the visa could be approved a lot sooner with a job offer etc.
Try to explain that not having a visa - but it being processed may not actually be a hindrance for them.

Good luck.

Main one is Jobs on SEEK - New Zealand's no.1 Employment, Career and Recruitment site

Also try Buy online and sell with NZ's #1 auction & classifieds site | Trade Me and Job Search | one search. all jobs. Indeed

Also, when you view these job vacancies you will see they are majority being offered through a recruitment agent si it may pay to then look at the agents specific website showing all the jobs on their board that they are trying to fill.

Where are you now ?
When have you previously visited NZ and how long in each case ?
Have you a pending visa application lodged in NZ ?

How long has your girlfriend been in NZ ?
What visa does your girlfriend hold or has she an NZ passport ?
