Frequently asked questions

What is the procedure for quitting?

If you want to resign, you should do so in writing. In principle you must adhere to the agreed applicable* notice period. This is usually the notice period in your employment contract.
[Mind the agreed notice period could be invalid, rather I would say applicable]

Permanent Contract
If you have a permanent contract and you want to resign, then you must adhere to the notice period that is in your employment contract.

Temporary Contract
If you have a temporary contract and want to take interim dismissal, then it is only possible if you have made prior arrangements to be able to do so in the employment contract.

Resign during probation
During your trial period you can cancel the contract at any time. You must do this in writing.

Resignation by mutual consent
When resigning through mutual consent, speak with your employer that the employment is terminated [do your mean: you agree on the termination and the conditions thereof]. It is also wise to establish agreements on the resignation in writing.

Contract expires
Your contract may also 'legally' end. For example, a 1-year contract automatically ends when the year is over. It does not have to be terminated. There may also be a disbanding condition in the contract [rather  rather for the duration of certain circumstances or work /project]. For example, replacing an employee who is sick. If the sick employee is better, then your contract expires for that reason.

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.

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.

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
