Financial Considerations
When compared with much of the rest of Western Europe, The Netherlands can be an affordable place to live as an expatriate.
Work Permits/Visas
Because demand for Dutch residence, especially residence for the purpose of employment, far outstrips supply; a large number of qualified applicants will be turned away.
Resume/CVs
A cover letter should give the reader an impression of the candidate as an individual, yet the style should be short, direct and professional.
Interviewing Advice
The normal interviewing process in The Netherlands may consist of several interviews before the final meeting is held to discuss employment terms.
Cultural Advice
English is spoken widely throughout the Netherlands as a second language but knowing and using a little Dutch can help develop closer, more respectful relationships with Dutch colleagues.
General Business - Sales & Marketing
Some of the world's largest companies are headquartered or have major business operations in The Netherlands.
Business and Networking Groups
Trade councils may provide background information, especially if the jobseeker is already a member of a sister organization within his or her home country.
