SURVEY : Expat partners are an untapped source of highly-skilled labour

A survey of people who moved to the Netherlands to be with their partners who either lived or were posted here shows seven in 10 gave up their career or business to relocate. And despite claims that the Netherlands has plenty of jobs for international workers, almost seven in 10 said not speaking Dutch was a problem when trying to find a job.

‘Even though the official work in all the tech companies is done in English, the culture within the organisation compels you to learn Dutch or else you will not be interviewed,’ one Indian national said. ‘A completely qualified Java developer will not be considered if they don’t speak Dutch or have English as their native language. I am fluent in English but still I never get called back.’

Struggle

In total 960 people took part in the survey which was carried out by the International Community Advisory Panel in early 2020, before coronavirus struck. Many of the respondents too said their difficulties in finding a job had left them depressed and unhappy, and having relationship issues. The research showed respondents were looking for work in a...

It is not easy to get employed by reputed concerns and candidates are expected to pay attention to every small aspect. A professionally written resume increases the chances of being given preference over other applicants. Unfortunately, even experienced professionals who have spent 5 years or more in their respective fields do not know which points to include the resume. Employers usually reject candidates who put in a lot of information that is not needed.
Let us have a glance at the tips you should use to prepare efficient resumes. By following them, it would be much easier to clear the initial scanning round and move closer to getting the opportunity. In a nutshell, if you presented your academic details / professional experience correctly, the chances of ending up with the offer letter would be much higher.

1. A paraphrasing tool helps you in submitting a unique resume

People who are applying for their first job may not even have a basic idea of preparing a good resume. One has to know about the layout, the format used to present academic details, listing down experiences, and countless other aspects.
To get an idea, candidates use templates available online or an existing...

Google for Jobs Is Coming to the Netherlands

Rumor has it that Google’s job search engine Google for Jobs is coming to the Netherlands. Is that true? Apparently yes, and very soon. Even though the service is available in a few countries, it is not fully available in Europe yet. On April 2019, however, Emerce reported that Google for Jobs was already being tested in the Netherlands and France. Richard Collins from ClickID, one of Google’s partners, told Emerce: “Google for Jobs is reportedly testing in the Netherlands and France, theoretically they could launch before the summer.”

Google for Jobs was introduced in America in May 2017. Since then, the service was also launched in India, South Africa, the US, and Japan, and rolled out in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria and Kenya. Europe’s turn came in 2018, with the service being introduced in Germany, Spain and the UK. Peter Woudenberg, head of digital marketing at RecruitNow, reported that the launching in Spain led to 366% more visitors through organic search and 289% more job applications through Monster board, one of Google’s partners in the rollout.

How to Attract Top Talent

‘Top talent’ is a buzzword that is thrown around a lot in the job marketplace. As the job market has grown naturally competitive, the demand for the best possible workers has grown exponentially. A wrong recruit can end up costing money, time and training if they turn out to be a bad fit, but on the other hand, companies want to know how to attract workers who will go above and beyond what is expected of them.

What Is ‘Top Talent’?

While the general idea of top talent constitutes an ideal employee, who performs or outperforms their job requirements, the real definition is much more subjective, dependent on industry, company values, and other variables. Interestingly, one recent study defined top talent as workers who are purpose-oriented; in other words, employees who view their work regarding personal fulfilment and serving others, rather than self-benefit in the form of income or status.

One of the issues with this definition is that the difficulty in finding workers who are genuinely passionate about their work can vary greatly depending on each industry. Where creative industries, such as the entertainment industry, have a much higher percentage of purpose-oriented workers, other typical...

Conducting Work from a Distance

There are different scenarios when it comes to working from a distance—traveling from one city to the next, or one country to another, for a few hours, days, or weeks, or even relocating for a period of time. The key to improving your chances of competing for a job in another location, or conducting work from a distance, is to identify locations or job sectors where your line of work is in high demand.

Search for jobs in your expertise to standout and make your skills more valuable to an organization. Indicate in your CV or interview that you are flexible to conduct work from a distance, and you are willing to relocate. Visit and explore the culture in that location to be sure of your opportunities and surroundings. Eliminate employer concerns about travel costs by considering housing options, or family or friends in that location that can let you stay over (when the employer does not cover relocation costs). Be sure you can afford to move or to take a trip when you are called for an interview.

Practicalities

The organization’s work culture is important to know about if you travel from one city to...

Smartphone Recruitment and Your CV

Today’s job market is a fast-changing landscape. A recent CareerBuilder survey found that 2 in 5 professionals intend to leave their job at the end of the year, for a variety of reasons which include better salary and work life balance. This means that you should be able to apply for a new job at a moment’s notice. Smartphones make this process possible, so it is good to be aware of the ways in which you can utilise this technology to your advantage.

It’s been about 5 years since mobile phone sales overtook PC sales for the first time. As a result, the business world has needed to adapt to the new phenomenon of an increasingly sophisticated mobile user base. One of the ways in which companies are beginning to change is to make job application procedures much more mobile friendly. This includes, for instance, job search apps, many of which are free and easily accessible

Storing your resume on a mobile device is becoming easier. There are numerous online or cloud based storage solutions, including Google Docs and DropBox. Furthermore, LinkedIn allows you to create an online resume, and sites such as WordPress allow you to...

We can say that a CV is the best possible written representation of who you are in professional terms. A good CV, however, is more than that. It represents your only chance to capture a potential employer’s attention in a few seconds, giving him or her the very first impression of you. And that impression is crucial. It will determine your gateway to an interview and possible further achievement of your desired job; or, on the contrary, your joining the long list of applicants rejected.

A professionally crafted CV has the power to get you noticed by highlighting your talents and accomplishments in a fashionable way. Of course, you can write your own resume. Many people have succeeded in this way by doing proper research, writing persuasively, and crafting the information according to the job postings. Nevertheless, if you recognize yourself in one of the following situations, it would be advisable to look for professional help:

1. You have been applying for job opportunities for some time and do not hear back from your applications.
2. You do not get any interviews, or as many as you would like.
3. You are facing a major change of industry or sector...

With little or no real job experience, it can be a daunting task for anyone to write their first CV coming straight out of college or university. In an already competitive job market, it can be hard enough to stand out without years of experience under the belt, and with job recruiters spending only an average of six seconds looking at a CV, it is imperative to put in the extra effort to write a polished CV that is sure to show off any relevant qualifications.

Although making oneself stand out is a common tip for CVs, it is also important to consistently remind applicants to make sure their CV shows they meet the minimum requirements of a job first and foremost. Job recruiters are more than likely going to judge CVs based on how well they think someone matches a role, so they are going to look for the relevant skills before looking at any extra details. Some recruiters even say that at an entry level, they are more likely to look for graduates who are less likely to cause trouble, which is another way of saying it may be best not to make a CV too over-the-top, and...
