Jobs in Holland – Immigrant today📺 Watch video Duration — 00:04:40 (Link will open in a new window)
There are a lot of vacancies in the Netherlands. However, almost all of them require knowledge of the Dutch language. It costs very little to study, and besides, you can complete courses at the expense of the employer.
Well, friends! Today it’s time to talk about one of the important topics – work and the Dutch language.
Upon arrival, I first of all tried to find a job in my profession, every day I sent a lot of CVs, but, unfortunately, there were not so many responses. Those who answered said, “Yes, you have a great resume, but you don’t speak Dutch.” I underestimated this problem, this is my shortcoming, so it is not yet possible to work in the profession. But I signed up for the Dutch language courses, I’m going to them from next week. What would you understand, the Dutch language is a mixture of English and German and a lot of letters “x”. It looks like you’re spitting.
Here the state encourages the study of the Dutch language. A few years ago it was even free, now I found courses that cost 30 euros for half a year. The company helps you with Dutch, sends you to courses and pays for you. But there is one condition – you must attend these courses. If you miss these courses, then you will have to compensate for their cost. The labor market here is very large, there are quite a lot of vacancies. I have seen hundreds of thousands of vacancies on websites, but if you do not know Dutch, then you do not fit into 80% of the market.
Everyone here works like bees. If at home, in Moldova, within an hour you can have time to smoke five times, spend half an hour on social networks. Here, unfortunately, this is not possible. You will not even have time to smoke, chat on the phone, only during the breaks allotted for this.
The Dutch have built a very cool system. Even if you are the owner of a business, then your child is not immediately appointed vice president, but is sent on an independent labor path from the very bottom. If you are a restaurant owner, then your son can be a waiter, dishwasher.
What is going on with me now? A month later, after I landed here, I found my first job. What path should each person take to find a job. There are several options. The first is to register with employment agencies. There are a lot of them here, and this is a fairly popular practice. This job is paid hourly. At the moment, it turns out like this: I work two days a week, Natasha works 3-4 days. This allows us to close to zero with the cost of a family here in Holland. Our costs are about 1900-2000 euros per month. Now the holidays will pass, February 14, March 8, and we hope to catch somewhere for a full contract for five days a week. Then all financial issues are removed. It will be possible to live normally and still save money. To do this, you need to find like-minded people who are also looking for work, exchange information, maybe someone can help with something.
And finally, a useful fact. Now everyone will go to open Google and look at the Mona Lisa. Note that the Mona Lisa does not have eyebrows. During the Renaissance in Florence, all fashionistas shaved off their eyebrows.
Good luck everyone! Keep in touch. If you still have questions about the work, then leave questions in the comments, I will answer everyone. Have a good day! Bye bye!
Job search in the Netherlands – part 1 Search services – Rozaliya Khafizova on vc.ru
Hello everyone 🙂
Welcome to April 2021. I am without the right to work in Europe, with my D visa ending, I started to act super actively.
Facebook, my post in a group of Russian-speaking expats.
I think that at least half of my acquaintances would like to move to Europe (anywhere), get a job and live happily ever after. And if I have the opportunity to make your life a little easier, I will gladly do it.
At the same time, I also understand how not easy, and sometimes even impossible, to sign a long-awaited offer. But if you approach this issue strategically and roll up your sleeves, then you have every chance to hold a European ID card with work rights in half a year.
So, I will only share my experience, which may differ from all others. Please do not think that this is the ultimate truth, and if you have something to add after reading the article (it’s hard to call it a full-fledged article, rather a post with usefulness and recommendations), be sure to leave your comment.
I will divide this article into several parts. Because the topic of finding and getting a job in Europe is limitless and contains many pitfalls. Specifically, in this part of the publication, we will talk about resources that will help us find our dream job.
Foreword (very short and concise)
It took me 6 months to find a job in the Netherlands.
6 months! ( when in Russia with my experience I found a job in 2 weeks, with a salary many times higher than the average in Moscow ).
End of preface
Why so long, you ask? I will answer the question in the next part, and what helped me figure out my job search strategy – I will tell right now.
The first and most necessary thing that will definitely help you get a job is job search services. Unfortunately or fortunately, they are now a dime a dozen, for every taste and color and wage level. I will give an example of the top 5 services that, in my opinion, are really useful and simplify this thorny path as much as possible.
P.S. Just don’t say that it is blocked in Russia, in order for it to work, just install a VPN and use it to your health.
Spoiler – I found a job through this platform.
What is LinkedIn? is a social network for business communication, search for employees and open vacancies. So this is where you need to go in the first place to start your search.
+ International companies that place promising positions. For example, Head of PR (Russian Speaker) at Netflix. Well, no beauty, for an experienced professional from Russia?
+ Once you can upload your resume and automatically apply for the positions you are interested in, without filling out 100500 questions on separate forms (yes, yes, my laziness plays a big role here).
+ If you carefully study the post with the vacancy, you can find the contacts of HR, a recruiter or even a CEO (mostly international startups).
+ If we have already touched on startups and you would like to try your hand at international startups, then Linkedin is the best resource for this. Lots of opportunities and open positions, all on the same platform.
+ Possibility to use search filters. Will significantly reduce your time. As for me, I have not yet found more convenient filter settings for searching for vacancies (with the exception of HH, but that’s another story).
+ Your profile is everything. Often, recruiters will immediately look at your LinkedIn profile, which can tell them about you as a candidate. Therefore, all your requested recommendations, portfolio is important and should be displayed on your page. Remember that business cards are the last century. A LinkedIn profile is becoming a professional alternative for businesses.
+ If you set up your profile correctly, international recruiters will write to you and invite you for an initial interview. The main thing is not to forget to put down tags, set up headings, indicate that you are now looking for a job, write in which areas you are competent. Remember, praise yourself is necessary and important!
+ You can see how many more candidates applied for the position and calculate the competition.
- International companies often post vacancies there last. That is, at the time when you responded to the vacancy, they have already closed this position.
- Your profile can play tricks on you. For example, if during registration you indicated the postal code of your hometown (42600 – zip code Izhevsk), then the algorithm is unlikely to give out your profile to recruiters if a vacancy is open in Amsterdam. That is, they will simply pass by your candidacy. Or another example, in the profile I indicated the city in which I lived at the time of the job search (Lunteren), this is a very small village, with a population of no more than 12,000 people. At that time, I applied for all vacancies in a company that was located in Amsterdam. And the algorithm did not automatically display my application and it passed by the eyes of recruiters (only if there was a requirement that the candidate must be in Amsterdam).
American giant for free worldwide job search. It is considered number 1 in the world in terms of the number of unique visitors per month. +10 new vacancies are published in one second. Contains over 175 million resumes.
From my experience with this service, I would rate it 5 out of 10. Here’s why.
+ Very simple resume submission form. No need to reinvent the wheel. Fill out your resume and CV once, and then, at the click of a button, send it to companies where you would like to work. (Don’t forget that Indeed is also an algorithm that may not let your resume pass if you don’t meet the criteria.)
+ There is a personal account where you can receive letters directly from recruiters, it seems to me super convenient when, like in Linkedin, you can receive a message either to your mail, or on the social network itself, or in general, immediately call.
+ There is a mailing of suitable vacancies. At the same time, now this mailing can be set up on your messenger (for example, WhatsApp), which is very convenient. You can get up-to-date vacancies at any time and immediately apply for a position.
+ There is a GPS function. I have never used it, but my friends say that it is very convenient. That is, you can customize your location and receive job offers, in accordance with your location. (for me it was not relevant, but maybe it’s a useful feature for you)
+ You can read reviews about the company from other employees. For a long time I thought, should this be attributed to pluses or minuses? Since I am sure that most of the reviews are written by the recruiters themselves. But I am sure that in the sea of laudatory messages, you can find constructive and useful recommendations.
- In my opinion, 90% of vacancies on this platform are local companies (ala, Accountant at Romashka LLC). Therefore, if you are not fluent in Dutch, the opportunities found on Indeed are unlikely to suit you. In most cases, local companies require local ones, as they do not have certificates to relocate people from other countries.
- Almost impossible to find contacts for recruiters and HR. That network from the word at all. In addition, most of the vacancies are posted by recruiting companies. I have nothing against them, but this means that you will not have direct contact with the employer for a very long time.
- Interface. But here, as they say, there are no comrades for the taste and color. To be honest, I didn’t fall in love with the Indeed interface.
The Glassdoor service helps you find a job, see the level of salaries within the company, and also gives you the opportunity to anonymously talk about the working conditions of the company and evaluate it and the management.
If there is one person that all job seekers should pray for, it is the founder of this amazing job search.
Let’s go in order.
+ It’s not just a Job Search platform, it’s a kind of transparent career community in the world that is changing the way people search for jobs, and companies are hiring the most talented people.
+ On the platform you can find information on salary. You can compare the salaries of similar positions in different companies. You can look at how much people earn on average at a certain company in the salary reports that are freely available. This is important in particular for those who are looking for work in the Netherlands. Because, in an interview, you will definitely be asked about your salary expectations, and here it is important not to sell too cheap and not go too far with your inflated Wishlist. Therefore, you must clearly understand the level of salary in the country for these positions.
+ You can also find interview questions there. And prepare in advance for the interview with the employer. For example, when I had an interview on GitHub, I took questions that were posted on the company’s page on Glassdoor.
+ You can save the vacancies that you like in your personal account in advance and apply for them at a convenient time for you. This is definitely not the case on other platforms.
+ Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many international companies, huge number eager to put together an international team
Cons of Glassdoor:
- It takes a little time to figure out the interface, but trust me, it’s worth it.
- Not a very large selection of filters, as in Linkedin, as a result of which not quite suitable vacancies may come across.
+ Pleasant, convenient, beautiful, intuitive interface. I noted this plus only for this platform, because it is really cool.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any more pluses on my part. If you have something to add, please write in the comments.
– There is no access to the contacts of the right people on the platform. Therefore, it remains only to sit and wait for recruiters to contact you.
– There are often technical problems when uploading resumes. There are no questions about the interface, it is super simple, pleasant and convenient. But I would classify uploading a resume as a task that ASAP needs to solve.
Relocate is a marketplace with jobs from international IT companies and useful content about moving. The main concept of the site is that the employer must provide at least a basic relocation package when moving.
Pros of Relocate.me :
+ Platform audience – strictly only those candidates who plan to relocate to another country. Therefore, all companies on the platform can definitely provide you with a complete relocation package.
+ There is a telegram channel that I recommend subscribing to in order to instantly receive all the latest vacancies.
+ There is a Learning Center that will help you set up a LinkedIn profile, write a CV and prepare a resume, prepare a strategy for finding a job, and so on.
+ There is a salary calculator after taxes. For each vacancy, you will find a specific list of what is included in the relocation package.
+ For each vacancy you will find a specific list of what is included in the relocation package.
Cons of Relocate.me:
– Most of the vacancies are for IT people. Of course, you can find something for project managers, product specialists, analysts, designers – but basically the area in which you should have IT experience.
– Not many vacancies and locations compared to other platforms.
– It is not possible to upload a resume once and use it to apply for a position. Each time you need to fill out separate forms for each company.
I also want to mention a few other job search services that I have not used directly, but have heard good reviews from friends.
Stack Overflow Jobs – you can immediately mark Visa Sponsorship, Relocation Offer in the filter.
Landing Jobs – the same story, there is an opportunity in the filters to find vacancies that offer relocation. Of the minuses – only IT people will be able to find a match and not so many countries are offered (mainly Portugal and Germany). But the interface is awesome.
TechMeAbroad – from the pluses, I would cancel the fact that there are direct contacts of employers and vacancies are presented only for foreigners. Of the minuses – the interface of the 90s, a lot of recruiting agencies and local companies.
Startup Job – only startups are represented (by the way, Airbnb and Spotify are still considered startups). Positions are mainly aimed at specialists with experience of 3-4 years in the market. There is a huge list of useful job search tags.
Supplement : I want to add one site that I really liked, maybe you will find usefulness in it.
Talents – the essence is that you can create an anonymous resume, and companies will send you offers (with salary indication). Without giving your name and other identifying data, you can get an offer solely due to your knowledge and skills.
Another tool for finding work abroad is social networks and groups with expats.
FaceBook has a huge number of local groups, chats, forums, pages for foreigners. For example, there is a group: Holland Work Network Helping Ours!
This group contains only Russian-speaking guys who can help with the search, the only thing worth remembering is that you are unlikely to find a recruiter from Google who will offer you a job and sign a contract with you. I’m sure there are similar groups in other countries.
- Resources for finding a job in the Netherlands are plentiful. The main thing is to find the desire and time to deal with them.
- The most (in my opinion) effective tool of LinkedIn and Relocate.me (if you are an IT person). After 6 months of searching, I found my work on LinkedIn.
- All of the above tools – services can be used in combination, for example, Glassdoor to prepare for an interview, Indeed to search for a job in local companies if you speak Dutch, Linkedin to search for a dream job (for example, on Google, Facebook, Booking.com, etc.) .
- It is worth being patient and accepting the fact that the job search can take at least 4 months, maximum 1-2 years.
- Use a high conversion strategy. The more you apply to different companies for different positions, the more likely you are to get a long-awaited offer.
Well, in conclusion, I can say that almost all services have the same vacancies. The only question is how many times you applied and where your resumes hang.
