Actively seeking work

Description

To be actively seeking work, a person must have indicated that they used at least one job search method other than looking at job advertisements. Examples of actively-seeking-work activities are:

  • writing, phoning, sending email, or applying in person to an employer
  • contacting a private employment agency
  • contacting a careers advisor or a vocational guidance officer
  • contacting Work and Income New Zealand to look for a job
  • placing an advertisement to find a job
  • asking friends or relatives for help in finding a job
  • taking steps to set up a business.

The variable ‘actively seeking work’ contributes to the derivation of the work and labour force status; it only applies to a person aged 15 years and over who was not employed on census day.
