Question in Getting a Job

Question : What kind of skills and requirements do companies in Amsterdam look for in applicants?

Answer from Flor de Maria Paredes Mattos, expert in Getting a Job

You will need a work permit, which your future employer can request for you. You will need to speak at least English very well. And it always helps if you speak more than one language, apart from English.
Note: A work permit obtained through an employer ("tewerkstellingsvergunning") is only valid for that specific employer and the specific job you're hired for. It's NOT a general work permit.

Amsterdam is a multicultural city, so you need to be able to work in multicultural environments. And be able to build relationships with people from all over the world.
People in Amsterdam (and in the entire country) love to cycle. Especially when working in the city centre, riding a bicycle will be the cheapest and quickest way to travel.
