The Centre for Higher Education Information (CHOI) recent research, Keuzegids HBO/2015 has revealed that the Hogeschool Utrecht (HU) is the top vocational university in the Randstad region.

The Keuzegids HBO 2015 made a critical evaluation of 1,150 bachelor’s programmes at HBO level. HU came in the tenth spot of the ranking list. This is an improvement from its 14th place in 2013. According to the research, the Financial Services Management course from HU was ranked the best in Utrecht.

Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) was at the end of the ranking list of the large universities in The Netherlands. Fifty-nine courses of HvA were taken into consideration. A major reason for a low ranking was that the students of the institution are concerned about the facilities the university offers. Apparently, delays seem to be a critical issue.

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

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".
