Finding a job in the Greater Rotterdam - The Hague area for newly arrived Ukrainians: preparation and applying

May 9, 2022: 18:00 – 19:00 CET

We want to help Ukrainian people displaced to the greater Rotterdam – The Hague area enter the Dutch job market. Some of the people that have recently arrived are highly skilled professionals and speak English. We could be of assistance to them in getting into the international sectors in the region.

To help this aim, a number of public-sector organisations have come together to organise a series of job skills webinars. We hope that these will provide a useful orientation onto the Dutch labour market. 

The first webinar will focus on Preparation and Applying for a job in the Netherlands. 

Topics to be covered will include: 

  • Structuring a CV
  • Writing a cover letter for Dutch employers
  • Identifying your most marketable skills
  • Finding ‘transferrable skills’ from your other roles
  • Which skills to emphasise for Dutch employers
  • How to conduct yourself in an interview
  • Preparing a portfolio
  • Negotiating your job offer

… and much more!
