Nowadays, most people are not able to give in to their sense of wanderlust due to budget constrains and hectic schedules.
But lo and behold, New Zealand’s tech industry is offering tech experts around the world some free leisure time, along with the chance to work for them.
According to a TIME report, the country’s capital city of Wellington is rolling out a “global talent attraction program,” which aims to bring in 100 new software developers, creative directors, product managers, analysts and digital strategists.
Qualified applicants will be subjected to a week-long, all-expense trip around New Zealand, including arranged job interviews, meet-ups with various individuals from the tech industry.
Applicants willing to relocate to the country can start by sending their application online at LookSee Wellington’s website and creating a profile.
Several tech firms will then contact the most qualified candidates and go through the admission process in Wellington—air fare and accommodations included.
Applicants are free to explore New Zealand on their down time, and companies will then make job offers to their favorite applicants by week’s end.
Deadline of submission is March 20, while the interviews will take place in New Zealand from May 8 to 11. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
