Default Moving to NZ with a Silver Fern Job VISA

Hi everyone!
I got one of the Silver Fern VISA this year (yyeaaahh!!!) and I will relocate to NZ at the end of November since my first entry in the country must be by Decemebr 4th. Does anyone of you know if it is necessary to do some other actions to "activate" your VISA before or once you land or, eg, at the airport they'll just put a stamp with the date of your arrival in NZ and that's it (to prove you've entered in NZ before the date they required you to)?

And has anybody of you find easily a whatever job before the one in your field (as requested in the requirements of the sfv)?

Thanks!!!
