Off topic: Working in Holland
Thread poster: ItalianLinguist
Good morning translators!
I am planning to move to the NL due to the main fact that my partner's sister is facing a very strong therapy in Rotterdam...
A change for me is not going to be a problem as I can virtually work from everywhere, but for my partner – an information security expert, bilingual (EN/IT) - it is quite different. He has a very impressive CV - worked with all main IT companies in Italy and abroad – but doesn’t speak any Dutch. He had many interviews but always with no success because, he was told, he doesn't know (enough)the language although he is learning it and very fast.
I tried with many head-hunters, and had a positive feedback, but the whole process takes ages. I also emailed to relocation experts but still...
Could you, please, give me few suggestions about where to send his CV?I am looking for something different from Monster.nl, etc.
Do you know if there are industries or realities looking for an IT security manager? It seems the more one is skilled the more it is difficult to find a right place to fit in.
I hope someone can help us as the situation is starting to be very difficult to deal with.
Sorry if I bother you somehow.
Have a wonderful (working!) day!
Sono rimasta molto sorpresa! I think it's very strange that he cannot find a job because he doesn't speak Dutch. I am Dutch (I moved to Portugal this year) and I know that there are many people in Holland who don't speak the language and still manage to work. Maybe it also has to do with the economic situation..
I will ask some friends of mine and see if I can help. I feel so sorry for him! I know how hard it is...
Cordiali saluti, Maaike
