So some here who have met me may remember that the past three years I've been studying towards a "Bachelor of Computing Systems" at Unitec (whether that's worth anything may be debatable, although I did get an IBM internship out of it). I have finally completed my studies, and am now in job seeking mode.
While I studied towards a networking and sysadmin path, I'm probably more general at this stage. I can do programming where required, and am willing and able to learn.
At IBM I was working with the testing team on a project, where I got to do a bit of stuff with VMware products and IaaS.
Prior to my studies, I worked a couple of years in Civil Engineering as a "technician" role, which was basically performing various tasks not requiring an engineer. My main role was as a draftsperson, but I also had a bit experience with some GIS stuff as well. And then there's the few weeks where I got to play with a PLC (further work there didn't pan out unfortunately, otherwise I would have loved to have continued learning and working with that stuff).
Unfortunately I appeared to have left it a few weeks to late to apply for most 2018 graduate programs, so that will probably not be an option at this stage.
Location doesn't matter too much, although I would prefer somewhere in the North Island.
So please, if anybody has any advice for me on places to apply, or know of places or people who may be seeking candidates please let me know. I'm open to various different roles, although my preference would probably not be pure software development.
