Before this program, I always used my old mind-set (what I learnt in China) to face the Dutch job recruiter, which might still work at Chinese companies in the Netherlands, but mostly, it didn't help me to go through the interviews with local or international companies. Anouk's experiences and feedbacks are very useful for me, to think outside the box. She is such a professional and friendly coach. I found a new job in less than a month!

From rejection to job offer

Phase 1: Kick-off: Understanding your strenghts and ideal career

The goal of the kick-off is to understand your job search so far. What has been working and what hasn’t been working? How does your ideal company look like? What are your responsibilities? Next, we will discuss your work experience so far and uncover your skills. What do employers actually want to see on a resume? What makes you stand out? We will start building your resume based on your ideal companies and jobs. Yes, this all in 1,5 hours! At the end of this phase you will have an optimized resume and have started selecting companies to target. We will work in Trello to keep track of your job search. 

✅ Know why your job search so far didn’t get you the results you wanted 
✅ Uncover your unique strenghts and how to sell this to employers
✅ Why you need different resumes in your job search
✅ Receive resume templates and a list of international companies that are hiring to help you get started 
✅ Homework: Optimized resume and selecting jobs and target companies

Phase 2: Applications: Let’s get started! 

Here the fun starts! We will start applying together to your favorite companies. What do I mean with together? I will go over your resume, cover letter and portfolio before you will submit each application. Within one day you will have feedback from me. And not only that, we will look for creative ways how to connect with the responsible recruiter and hiring manager for the role. Is there a way we can get a referral? Do we know someone at the company?  

✅ Ongoing and fast feedback on your resume, cover letter and portfolio 
✅ Be supported during each job application 
✅ Make a lasting first impression and get on top of the resume pile 
✅ Start connecting with employers and hiring managers 

Phase 3: The Interviews: Turn Interviews into job offers  

Your first interviews are starting to come through. Don’t panick! We will together research the company and the people you’re speaking with. We’ll discuss the most common interview questions, but more important the questions you can expect for this role. We can practise your interview and you will get feedback on how to improve your interviewing skills. Yes, interviewing is a skill you can learn

✅ Feel well prepared for your interview 
✅ Get feedback and practical tips for your interview
✅ Know how to answer the most common interviews questions 
✅ Why you should always have questions prepared for the interviewer

Phase 4: Job Offer: Congratulations! 

This is what you’ve been working so hard for! You’ve landed your job offer in The Netherlands! But this is not where our journey stops. We will go over your job offer together. Are you happy with your job offer? How do you go into a negotiation? At the end of this phase you will have a job offer you’re fully satisfied with.   

✅ Know how a good job offer looks like 
✅ Learn about employment contracts and benefits 
✅ Why you should always negotiate

Why This Program is Unique

Insider knowledge from a former recruiter 

I’m sharing how leading companies in The Netherlands hire people. So you can benefit! I’ve screened thousands of resumes and made just as much decisions on who gets interviewed and who doesn’t. I’ve hired for positions ranging from sales, logistics, software, marketing to merchandising; chances are I’ve hired for the roles you’d like to apply for. 

No one off coaching sessions, but real results 

We will work together until you land your next job. Maybe this will be in a few sessions, maybe it takes longer. The ongoing support and accountability with a clear goal is how you see the biggest changes. 

A loving mirror and support 

Most people keep doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting different results. Let’s translate this to your job search: you send out your resume, wait for a response and nothing happens. Sometimes you need a pattern interruption! I will guide and support you in the process from the job search to the salary negotiations and the signing of your offer. 

About Anouk

Hi! I’m Anouk

I’ve worked as a recruiter for many international companies in The Netherlands. I’ve been doing this since 2015 and have helped hundreds of people land their job in The Netherlands.

After my Masters in Social Psychology I’ve specialized in recruitment. I’ve worked for multinationals such as Booking.com and PVH (Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein), but also for fast growing startups such as Flexport and Miro.

I know how hard it can be to find a job in The Netherlands. The aim of the Career Accelerator is to make this process easier, faster, more fun and profitable for you!

Personal facts: My favorite city in The Netherlands is Amsterdam. I’ve lived in every district, except for The North! I love cycling along the canals and having my favorite drink: a coconut coffee. You can also find me working remote from the South of Spain for my portion of sunshine!

The Guarantee 

Unlimited Whatsapp or Telegram support until you get a job offer in The Netherlands! 

Do you have questions?

Yes! There are many international companies in The Netherlands. I’ve worked during my recruiting years with people from all over the world. More so than with Dutch people! You can expect the main language in these companies to be English. 

If you need a Visa to work in The Netherlands depends on your personal situation:
– If you’re from the European Union or European Economic Area or from Switzerland you don’t need a work permit to work in The Netherlands
– If you’re not from the European Union you need to get a Visa Sponsorship from your employer. In most cases this is the Highly Skilled Migrant Visa.  

Luckily there’s many employers in The Netherlands that offer this Visa sponsorship.

It’s common for international companies in The Netherlands to provide relocation packages. A relocation package will help you settle down in a new country and will cover the expenses you make. Think about your costs for the flight, luggage and sometimes you get temporary accommodation as well. It completely depends on the company if they offer a relocation package and of which this consists of. You can check this with the recruiter of the company. 

Yes! If you’re already in The Netherlands and are looking to change jobs in The Netherlands the Career Accelerator could be the perfect fit.

Yes. The interviews you have with companies will be online. There are also plenty of ways to connect with companies and people online. You will learn this in the Career Accelerator. 

The Career Accelerator consists of biweekly coaching sessions. This will keep you motivated in your job search, while also giving you enough time in between sessions to implement your findings. Depending on the stage of your job search journey we will discuss different topics. 

The coaching will take place through Google Meet. If you’re based in Amsterdam there is the option to do the sessions in person as well.

The homework assignments and other communication will be through Whatsapp.

Finding a job anywhere depends on many different factors. It doesn’t only depend on me, but also on the effort you put into it and the job market itself. What I can guarantee is unlimited support through Whatsapp and Telegram until you’ve found your job in The Netherlands. 

This program is tailored to The Netherlands, but you can apply the learnings to jobs in other countries as well. Personally I have experience hiring in Germany, The United Kingdom and Spain as well. Book a matching call to find out if this program is for you.

There is no refund policy, but we will keep working with you until you do find that job!
