Migrants in New Zealand are very rarely given the opportunity to say why they’ve decided to leave the country, often after investing a great deal of time and effort getting there.
We here at E2NZ would like to give you the chance to give feedback in your very own exit interview and we’re throwing this open to New Zealanders too. Perhaps we can find out if the same things are making both categories of people leave and why New Zealand is failing to keep people.
You can use any, or all of the questions; or just tell us in your own words.
- What country did you come from and why did you come to New Zealand?
What visa did you enter New Zealand with?
What sort of work/skill-set did you have before entering New Zealand and did you continue in this when you arrived? If not, why not?
What were your initial reactions when you arrived. Did NZ meet your expectations and how did that change?
What were the major challenges you faced and how did you try to meet them?
What are the good things you found and what did you enjoy the most?
What was the deciding factor that made you decide to leave New Zealand? Was this a single event or the culmination of a combination of circumstances?
How easy was it making plans to leave New Zealand, what stumbling blocks are/were in your way?
If you could have your time over again this there anything that you’d have done differently? what would your advice to other potential migrants be?
What would it take to make you want to stay in New Zealand?
What are your major challenges and aspirations after leaving New Zealand?
