Applications for the Eagle Technology GIS Graduate Programme Starting late June 2024 are now closed.

How does the grad application process work?

Apply. You will need to complete a short application form and submit your CV, cover letter, and academic transcript (we know this won't be your official one, so just send us where you are at so far).

Applications close. If your application isn't successful, we encourage you to keep in touch as we have other graduate opportunities throughout the year. 

Applicant screening begins.  Once applications have closed, ALL of the applications will be reviewed. If we shortlist you, you will be required to complete a short video interview and if selected to progress further, attend a final round interview, either in-person or via a virtual meeting depending on the location you are applying from. If you aren't selected, we will let you know via email.
Interviews. We want to know more about you. During the interview, you will get to tell us about yourself and what you like to do outside of university, and why you want to join Eagle Technology. You will also get to answer more questions, based on our standard behavioral-based interview questions. Because applicants will be applying from different locations throughout New Zealand we will be conducting interviews via Microsoft Teams to level the playing field

Employment offers. We'll contact you as soon as a decision has been made to let you know our decision. If you're offered a job, we will complete a reference check and then send your formal offer.

Onboarding. We're looking forward to welcoming you to Eagle Technology! Our graduates commence in either early February or Late June, depending on the intake you are part of, where you will be welcomed into our Graduate Programme.
