    Hello,

    I'm currently working in the US and am thinking of relocating to New
    Zealand. Can anyone tell me what the job outlook is like for C# ? In
    addition, what are the work hours like in the IT Industry in New
    Zealand? Is it possible to keep a 40-hour workweek?

    Thanks

    Some IT skills are in very high demand still. In saying that your NZ
    salary will be less than the US, however your expenses will also be a
    lot less, you should be net better off......If you come here get at
    least a 2 year permit so our health system covers you, otherwise you
    will need your own. It is likely you will ony be able to get work in
    the three main centres, Wellington, Auckland or
    Christchurch....however its expected that we will start to suffer soon
    from the recession as the Govn cans work....

    www.seek.co.nz and www.trademe.co.nz are two good places to look for
    work.

    Yes....but some employers will ask a lot more, usually the US owned
    ones, so avoid the outsourcers...
