Default EOI question: from "selected" to "successful"

Quick question: I notice that some EOIs change status to "successful" within one day, but our has not. I have a job offer: are the NZIS checking on that, and is the change of status to "successful" in fact quicker if you have no job offer: i.e. less to check?

The current website says 2-4 weeks for EOIs to be checked, so how can some change within 24 hours?

Just as thought......

Jan

Hi Jan

Our EIO was selected on the 6th May (125 points - no job offer) and we are still waiting to go 'Successful' - vey frustrating as we just want to go! With a job offer you shouldn't be waiting too long - before us probably!

Good Luck

Default Re: EOI question: from "selected" to "successful"

It was all a bit strange really: I was headhunted for this job - I guess my name was on agency lists as I was actively job hunting at the time, but in the UK - and this one came up. Neil encouraged me to apply, and eventually I did, but didn't think I'd get it. When, after 5 interviews (1 in London and 4 by new empoyers in NZ over a period of one week!!) I was offered it, the reality that we were going to emigrate suddenly hit us! So I'm afraid we weren't very prepared

Have to say, accepting the job was a no brainer, it's a wonderful job, and I would have taken it if it had been in the UK, or anywhere tbh.

You are soooo lucky - OH has applied for a super job on the South Island - but sods law says it will be the usual - 'you're not on the ground - etc etc!' We're lucky we have sold our house - in rented - all packed up ready to go - Lil' Sis already living there - so even if it does go unsucessful we've already decided we'll just b*gger off down under and see what comes up!

Good Luck!

We can't sell our house... we are faced with the very real possibility of leaving it empty with all our capital tied up in it while we are the other side of the world needing to buy a new home....

Oh dear not so great! my sister is in the same boat - but they are quite happy to keep their house on in the UK (it's rented out) and they rent in Welly (which they love by the way!) - I guess you would have this option - but there's nothing quite like going out there with no worries is there! I just want to be doing something constructive - I've just finished my finals at Uni - and am sorely tempted to leave OH in UK while I go over and look for a job (feet on the ground so to speak). Soooooo frustrating this wait!

Well, EOI now changed status to "successful"

I know it's a small step but it feels good
