A friend found this site for me.

They're quite good. I've already had a couple of job offers... which is jumping the gun a bit because I'm not in the Netherlands yet. Lol.
Anyway, anyone else who's moving there and needs a job, this might be helpful.

PS. Hoe zeg je 'jumping the gun' in het Nederlands?

Hey, thanks man, I haven't seen this one before. I've only visited the Randstad company's site and another, so this is great see. And I am in the same boat... I still have a few months before I go to live in NL but, you know, you can never start looking too early.

Hoi,

Can you get a job by using that agency if you're American? I know that you can't use some of them if you are. Which types of jobs do they offer?

Groetjes,

Cathleen
