Information centers and business clubs can be a huge asset to expats living in the Netherlands. Starting work in a new country is a big challenge! If you have come to Holland to pursue your career, you may well have very minimal resources. You are likely to have few contacts, limited knowledge about the Dutch employment market and perhaps even less about Dutch culture. Luckily there are numerous sources of help and support on offer to you in NL. The information centers listed below can provide you with priceless, practical advice on doing business here. Be sure to take a look at the international clubs we have mentioned too. Being part of a group of like minded people is an invaluable means of learning, networking and amassing colleagues. You can be supported further by the Dutch chambers of commerce, as well as those of your national  country, in the Netherlands. Find details about these at the bottom of this page.
