Welcome to JETmag

Packed with useful advice about jobs, education and training, JETmag is New Zealand’s essential guide to life after school.

Aimed at Year 11–13 students, their parents and school decision makers, the annual print edition is distributed to every secondary school in New Zealand.

Put together by a team of young writers, JETmag reaches school leavers on their level and speaks their language.

Circulation and readership

Copies of JETmagazine are distributed to Year 11–13 students through year deans and principals at all secondary schools nation wide.

Print copies will also be available at the NZ Career Expo events (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Hamilton).


Harnessing the power of the NZME network, JETmag is given a significant promotional push each year. Previous publicity has included the ZM Black Thunders, radio, outdoor, magazines, and daily newspapers.

Copies are given out for free at Career Expo events, and marketing collateral is seen by tens of thousands of students, parents and school staff.


From trades to professions, casual jobs to full-time work, we explain the workforce in an easy-to-understand manner. JETmag gives practical job-hunting advice, profiles inspiring young people in all types of jobs, and details career progression for various sectors, from NCEA to CEO.


What does NCEA mean in the real world? From universities, polytechnics and wānanga, to private training establishments – JETmag explains the major tertiary players and what type of courses they provide.


We cover in depth the government’s Vocational Pathways (including the Creative pathway), providing clear information on training options within each pathway and the careers onto which they will lead.


Options after secondary school aren’t always as cut and dried as choosing a course or job. Adjusting to adult life can be tricky. JETmag includes tips for parents to cope with the empty nest and advice for students on maintaining good physical and mental health.
