One hundred people from around the world can now apply for a free trip to the beautiful city of Wellington, New Zealand. Of course, such an amazing deal does come with limits, and in this case, applicants must have a background in technology.
Considered the tech capital of the South Pacific, LookSee Wellington, a program meant to attract global talent, is trying to recruit more tech specialists to the area, specifically android developers, digital strategists, software developers, digital producers, creative directors and more. So if you’re thinking of going on a quick getaway and returning to your regular job after, this isn’t the trip for you.
The four-day trip includes free flights and accommodations for yourself and your partner in exchange for job interviews with Wellington-based tech companies. The branded tote bags from the last job fair we went to suddenly look a lot less impressive.
Local companies like Xero and Weta Digital are responsible for the visual effects in Avatar and Lord of the Rings, so there are definitely some pretty awesome companies to work for in Wellington.
The area also has over 55 museums, 12 craft breweries, and also boasts more than 750 bars and restaurants, which is more per capita than New York City. Did we mention that Wellington gets 2,000 hours of sunshine each year? We’re in!
Calling it the ‘Ultimate Tech Career Trip,’ interested applicants can upload their resume and information on the LookSee Wellington website here to enter for their chance to win a trip from May 8 – 11. Better polish up that cover letter.
