Business schools graduates are losing interest in investment banking and turning to consultancy and technology sectors, says The Economist.

Figures show that this trend can be seen among MBA graduates from elite business schools across the globe. The percentage of students from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business choosing jobs in investment banking fell from 30% in 2007 to 16% in 2014. In 2007, 46% of London Business School’s MBA graduates entered financial services but in 2013, only 28% did.

According to The Economist, about 30% of the business schools graduates apply and work in the consultancy technology industries.

MBA graduates are attracted by better career opportunities and salaries in these sectors. The technology industry percentage of recruiting MBA graduates has risen from 6% to 12 % since 2007.

For an expat moving to the Netherlands, getting the right direction is very important. It's important that one knows which steps and direction to take. Linda is an exceptionally talent counselor, her advice has helped me land a job within a week of coming to the Netherlands. I am grateful for her mentoring and look forward to a great working relationship in the future.

Together Abroad provided expert advice on personal branding including developing a top-notch, market-aware CV, highly tailored job applications, and approach strategies with potential employers in the Netherlands. Furthermore, I found them be highly knowledgeable in key related fields such as recruitment strategy, immigration law, contracts, labor agreements, and (un)employment benefits. I would recommend Together Abroad to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

Linda is a big mind. She thinks about things that the rest normally overlook. The insight she has about the dutch job market can only be achieved through years of experience and persistence.

Her business savvy is complemented by her mastery of understanding the client's needs and requirements. For my career I could say, she was the “Mary Poppins”, who guided me through thick and thin and helped me to land a career in the Netherlands

S. Bhattacharjee | FP&A Manager

If you are going to enlist the services of a "Career Coach" look no further. The only person you want in your corner is Linda van Orsouw. As an expat, you absolutely want to work with a highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who knows their way around the Dutch career/employment/job market. Linda assisted me in writing and positioning my CV, helped me organize and prioritize my list of opportunities, coached me through mock interviews and was there when I got offered a senior position only 2 months later. When asked I will only refer to Linda and "Togetherabroad".
