My partner and I are New Zealand residents. We moved to NZ for my dream job, scarce skills. (Oh the guilt!) He's been in the country for a year now and job hunting for slightly less. He worked in the NGO sector in SA. He has an honours degree (masters in process) and extensive experience (head-hunted twice back home) in health sector reform work. He's had a couple (as in 2) of bites but it just feels he's hitting a brick wall, even for entry level jobs. We're feeling quite disheartened and wondering if this is a common experience among other expats?
