Timing? Expression of Interest selection -> Visa

Good day,

Big day for a bunch of people I'm sure. We were selected from the pool drawn this morning.

I have a job offer that I'm due to report to on the 1st of November.

Feeling a bit nervous, how was everyone's timing around this process? There's talk of 10 days to 6 months 😰

I spoke to someone at the New Zealand High Commission and they suggest I get a temp work visa concurrently to my residency application so I can start work on the 1st. Is this a good idea?

Thanks everyone :)
