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

Siddhartha Bhattacharjee
FP&A Manager

I approached Linda via TogetherAbroad for outplacement services in order to transition to a new career role. Throughout a time period encompassing several months, 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. Last, but not least, Linda is a great person with a lot of empathy for her clients, and it was a pleasure to work with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

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.
