So what are you waiting for?!
Our first seasonal job in New Zealand was an asparagus picking. We found some email adresses of asparagus farms on the internet after our arrival to Auckland and in a couple of days we arranged an interview in one family company growing strawberries and asparagus. The farm was close to Hamilton and we were working there for 5 weeks - till Christmas time when asparagus season was finished. First week was really hard was us and we were tired. It was only working-sleeping. But by the time our bodies got trained and we were faster and stronger. After few days the manager offered us a job in the packhouse so every day after work on the field we earned some more money by sorting asparagus that we had picked a few hours before. These kinds of jobs are very stereotyped so you needto find something what will help you to do your job well every day. For us it was breaking through the number of crates we should pick in the parficular time. It was very good experience - we got knowledge how to grow asparagus, how to pick it and sort it and the benefit - bigger muscles!:-)
