College diplomas need additional backups!

It is already known the long-term benefit of having a university degree when taking job opportunities, but on the current short term present a significant number of graduates understand that the market demands additional skills as well.
“In the end you have to put some kind of applied point on your pencil in order to get through the door. These are the handholds and footholds that allow you to move around and start climbing new angles” in the job market, stated Anthony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York concluded that the unemployment rate for recent college graduates—which was down 7% in 2011— keeps remaining above historical standards at 5%. About 46% of recent college graduates are in jobs that don’t necessarily require a degree, in comparison with about 35% for all college graduates.

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 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 Linda to be highly knowledgeable in key related fields such as recruitment strategy, immigration law, contracts, labor agreements, and (un)employment benefits. I would recommend her 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
