Default Are there any criteria on the start date if we get job offer

I have applied for resident visa under SMC. In the mean while, I am talking to some companies in NZ regarding employment. My Question is - is there any requirement that the job offered by companies should start in next 3-4 months? I remember reading it somewhere but could not find that information anywhere.

Basically, if I get job offer this month end from NZ employer with start date as March'2015 , will that be considered as valid offer by NZ immigration ?

That should be fine.
As far as I know the only requirement is that if your resident visa was gained using points for a job offer then you must take up that job within three months of your first entry into NZ. You must also stay in that job for at least three months and prove this to NZIS.

A job offer for March 2015 is great. you shouldnt have a problem - as Persephone said - you have to have started your job within 3 months of entering NZ and be in that job for at least 3 months.
