Sent in by a reader; and sure, there are plenty of plausible reasons why the job search site for the NZ government is set to Australian Eastern Standard Time, but my favorite (not-that-unlikely) theory is that it’s been outsourced to an Aussie provider but staffed by ex-pat Kiwis.
Update: jobs.govt.nz HAS been outsourced to Australia! From the comments:
Extract of whois of jobs.govt.nz:
jobs.govt.nz IN A 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa IN PTR eyintra.recruitasp.com.au
Traceroute looks like Sydney. Therefore, outsourced.
Lucky outsourcer is RecruitASP, Privately held, 51-200 employees. No idea how many are kiwi expats.
