Have been working and living in the NL on two occasions, getting good at Dutch bureaucracy - feel free to ask if anyone's considering a move there.

I have applied for a summer internship with ABN-AMRO at their headquarters in AMS - still waiting for a response, of course, as I am several months early.



Would you have anything to say regarding the ease of non-EU citizens working, both part time and permanently, in the Netherlands? What about the accommodation issue in downtown AMS? And would Dutch be an absolute necessity in the working environment, as I speak only English, Chinese, Italian and a hint of French?



Dank u!

hey!



I've been living, working and studying in Holland for 3 years now, so I think I can provide some info as well.



Inzaghi: I'm not totally sure about the working terms for non-eu citizens. A friend of mine has an eastern european girlfriend, and she wanted to move here to study arts part-time and to work. She wasn't allowed to work more than about 4 hours a week, but against a small fee she was allowed to work fulltime. So there might be a financial way to get trough.



Living in Amsterdam: Getting a place to live in Amsterdam is very hard. There are several official ways to get a place to live, but these take ages. A friend of mine has arranged for a place to live twice over the internet (globosapien: kirikou). I'd advice you to answer adds in dutch newspapers. It's the quickest way. You might consider living a bit outside Amsterdam, doesn't take long to get there anyways.



Speaking all those languages, you are perfect for a call-center job (plenty of those in Holland). If you want something of a higher standard, it might be dificult. From experience I would say most dutch people prefer you to speak dutch.....I did however get a job within 24 hours the first time I tried, and I didn't speak Dutch back then. The job-agency called "Content" is very good!



I hope this post wasn't too long! If you have any questions at all, feel free to mail me!

Hi guys, I'm a Chinese student in Utrecht. I am studying Integrated Communication Management and I am seeking opportunities to have a intership in Holland. I want to ask the same question which "coliseum" asked.



Thanks a lot

Hey Shirin!



This is a very busy weekend for me, but I'll look into in tomorrow (monday) or the day after.



It does help to know if you have any education (for ways of finding jobs) and how long you're planning to stay. Do you have any preferences when it comes to where you want to live and work?



Will get back to you soon!



Greetz,



Vibeke (Karmapd)
