The field of science and technology includes a wide range of jobs and opportunities for graduates. There are roles available for those working in a laboratory to find a cure for cancer, to those analysing the mineral content of rocks. As a result, there are some incredible and diverse careers for science technology graduates.

What types of science technology roles are available?

The most common graduate roles in this field include:

  • Researcher

  • Zoologist
  • Chemist
  • Environmental scientist
  • Metallurgist

How to find work and apply

One of the first things that science and technology students should be doing is looking for an internship. Obtaining a graduate job is difficult, as there aren’t enough roles for every student. Completing an internship will not only give you valuable practical experience on the job, it will also look fantastic on your resume and give you an edge over your peers. Most internships and vacation programs are available to penultimate year students and generally advertised mid-year, in July and August.

When entering your final year of study, start searching what graduate programs are available and which employers accept applications from your degree. Closing dates will be indicated on the job description. It’s also wise to keep an eye out for ‘expressions of interest’, usually in the form of submitting your first, last name, degree and email address. Then, when employers open applications for their graduate program, you are notified on email.

Which employers hire science and technology graduates?

  • AECOM located in a range of places throughout New Zealand
  • WSP Opus located in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Hamilton
  • Honeywell located in Auckland
  • IXOM located in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington
  • Downer Group located in Auckland and Christchurch
  • GHD located in Auckland, Manawatu-Wanganui, Canterbury, Wellington and Hawke's Bay

Are there other options?

In short, yes. A range of industries and sectors regularly recruit science and technology graduates. You may want to consider:

  • Consulting
  • Government & Public Service
  • Construction
  • Finance and Banking

What is the competition like to get a graduate job?

Competition for graduate programs in New Zealand is fierce, however with a science & technology degree, you will quickly find that most employers will accept your application. One thing to consider is the location of role, with the vast majority of graduate positions available in Auckland and Wellington. It’s also worthwhile checking out roles in Australia, with the CSIRO recruiting a number of postgraduate students each year.
