"Founded in 1927, the AWCA has a long history of helping American women and other international women with close ties to the US to embrace life in the Netherlands. It does so by creating opportunities for community involvement and philanthropy, offering cultural, educational and family activities as well as networking opportunities with other professionals. In doing so, they help to build lifelong friendships." CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

"On a more practical side, you’ll be provided with useful information and resources to help you acclimate to life in Amsterdam. We hold area walkabouts, introducing you to a particular part of the city, hands-on tours of the tram system or the supermarket, or we’ll find someone to tell you just what that electricity bill says. In the Newcomers Group (as well as in the whole club), there are no dumb questions!" READ MORE

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".
