Kiwi Job Seekers Have a New Online Training Option

Kiwi Job Seekers Have a New Online Training Option Giving Them the Power

Each year unsuccessful kiwi job seekers receive 12 million rejection letters, with many left in the dark about what they can do to get the job they want. A new training and career development service is making it easy for workers to find training and support to attain new jobs and pay rises.

DoBetter.co.nz brings reputable training providers together in one place to allow people to tap into the career support they require, at no cost. Whether it’s simply undertaking a first aid course, rewriting a CV, developing winning interview techniques or help transitioning to a new career with a tertiary qualification. DoBetter.co.nz aims to be a ‘one-stop training and career support shop’.

DoBetter.co.nz Marketing Manager and one of the site’s creators, Naell Crosby-Roe says the new service, developed with support from Otago Polytechnic, aims to make it easier for busy people to find training and support that fits around their busy lives.

“We have been described as the ‘LifeDirect’ or ‘Webjet’ for jobseekers – we put the interests of each individual job seeker first and find the training or other support that is right for them.”

He believes DoBetter.co.nz beats traditional bricks and mortar training providers by providing career support as people want it – online, at a time and place of their choosing, in a virtual environment or with real people - all of whom are New Zealand HR professionals and trainers.

Mr Crosby-Roe says all DoBetter.co.nz training organisations and career development professionals have been accredited and offer online, over the phone and face-to-face courses.
The list of support providers is a roll call of New Zealand’s most highly regarded training and HR consultants including; Select Personnel; Capable NZ; New Zealand Institute of Management; St John and Kiwihost to name only a few of the more 15 professional organisations people can seek training, advice and guidance from.

Mr Crosby-Roe anticipates people across all sectors of the workforce will tap into DoBetter.co.nz.

“For example those who want a better life and want a career change can use this service to help achieve this. By providing advice on options and training DoBetter.co.nz takes the pain out of the decision about what people should to do next to develop their career and achieve a promotion or a pay rise.

“Job seekers may access the service to assist them in presenting a strong CV or help develop their interview technique. Similarly a new employee could use it to help access compulsory training such as a St John First Aid course,” he says.
