Is it difficult to find a job in Auckland quickly?

Just curious how difficult it is to land a job in Auckland upon arrival... realistically?

I'm coming on a one year working holiday visa. Fresh after completing six months on a similar visa in Singapore where it was quite difficult to find a job, but I got very lucky. Of the three thousand e-mails I sent, only a handful responded.

In New Zealand I'm finding out that after a few dozen e-mails everyone or almost everyone responds... which is nice, but so far all of them respond with a "not interested" which isn't very good at all.

Can people share their experiences who have recently arrived in NZ, especially if you came on a working holiday visa.
