A Kiwi dream

Inner exchange provides me with an amazing experience. They made my trip so easy. From setting up my cellphone and bank account before I Gorbachev to NZ, to walking us through different seasonal jobs, places to work and over all what each region in NZ was known for. This information was invaluable for finding a job. Besides the amazing job help, the community is mainly what makes this special. The built in commjnkth you come into when you get there is amazing. Everyone’s coming alone from around the world. It’s great to know that you have a community being so far from home. I met my best friends my first day in NZ thanks to them and ended up traveling/working with them for the next year! Their knowledge and community is what made this year of working abroad so special an memorable.

InterExchange New Zealand

I really liked InterExchange and their help getting me to New Zealand but once I got there I wasn’t a huge fan of the program actually in New Zealand called IEP. It seemed like a really busy week when I got there but it was a bit disorganized and it took a long time to figure out the bank and I ended up having to be at the bank for a long time. Overall I’m glad I did the program but it was a bit overpriced.

Hobbit training

If it hadn't been for the assistance provided with InterExchange, I wouldn't have been willing to pack up and move to New Zealand for a year. It was great having them as a resource--especially since it allowed me to live in a beautiful country.

The best decision I've made so far

I absolutely had a blast in New Zealand. Inter exchange helped out it more way than I thought! They also taught me a lot. Great service and definitely worth it! I know now that I will retire in New Zealand one day :)

Work New Zealand

Working and living in New Zealand is a great opportunity as it is a beautiful country full of kind and generous people. Finding work is easy upon arrival and there are many useful tools available to help. Within the first weeks I was able to receive multiple job offers as well as find suitable accommodation. There are many amazing sites to see and places to travel, whether it be a quick weekend trip or longer-term. The support through interexchange has been very helpful in the transition to a new country and they are always quick to respond and assist.

Glowing!

The help through InterExchange really provided the support to sort through the logistics of moving/traveling abroad. Can't thank them enough! It's comforting to know I have someone to contact if I have any questions or need any support along the way, throughout my travels.
