What is it really like to work in the Netherlands? Click on a profile and read more about the experiences of some of our NL Career Ambassadors!

They all studied in the Netherlands and found a job here after graduation. Some returned to their home countries but missed the Dutch weather, the excellent cuisine or a specific Dutch person, and returned years later.

It is a very diverse group - different nationality, study background, age, job and period of time they have been in the Netherlands, so there will definitely be a NL Career Ambassador who is able to answer your questions.

Get in touch with our NL Career Ambassadors and they will gladly tell you and share their experiences!

You can connect with them through their contact information listed below their career story. Ask them for advice or have them inspire you with their stories. Would you like to get in touch with them via email, please send your email request to alumni@nuffic.nl and we will make sure they get your message.

There is also a chance you will see them at different career events organised by education institutions or the  NL alumni network - Netherlands! They often tell about their experiences and give you tips and tricks on how to get a job in the Dutch labour market.
