how to work in a coffeshop or generally in amsterdam?|
can anyone gimme a clue how to get a job in Netherland?
i'm an PC Specialist but preferably would like to work in a coffeeshop or at least wanted to get some more informatione on how to find jobs either at a coffeeshop or a regular jobs for instance at Computerbusiness
I hope you are not from the USA or other Non EU country. No country imports workers to be bartenders, maybe u could find a PC job but you better brush up on your english and typing. PC specialist...haha......read: I am a Stock Boy at COMPUSA
I will be in Den Haag on a student visa and an online acquaintence did the same thing, he was only permitted to work 10 hours a week, so he got a job in a coffeeshop pretty easily. So it is possible, if what he said is true.
Yeah if you are from the US. You have a better shot of winning the lottery than getting a job in amsterdam. You are one of thousands who would like to work in a coffeeshop in amsterdam
You could probably get a cash-in-hand job pretty easily if you were willing to work hard for lousy pay. Pretty much like illegal immigrants in any big city here in the US.
Thx for all the posts folks
I'm a bloody german who hates the rules in fu... Germany and simply would like to live and work in netherlands...
I'm workin' at a big Software-Supplier in Germany as a second Level Supporter. Is it possible to get some Job with special knowledge of Networking, Linux, all Windows Plattforms and knowledge of LDAP and Databases? I got LPI 1 and 2 too.
But i could also do any other job as a driver or workin' in coffeeshop or somewhere else where i could be usefull because i could easily learn what i didn't know today ;-)
Thx again for the kind replies.
You obviously aren't speaking from experience. I know for a fact you can get small jobs as LTD was saying, maybe not in a coffeeshop, but there is work.

And by your last statement, you've obviously got a good attitude which should go far in enabling you to find some sort of work.
I for one wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out.
my luck goes out to the bloody german as well!
Hey fable in regards to the post I made regarding you having a better chance at the lottery. I was referring to a legitimate employment where you earned decent pay. Picking tulips during Tulip time in a field is not what I call a decent or regular job. If you are from a Europe or an EU country you have a much better chance and to secure a job you have to get a work permit then you will have to travel back to the Us and apply since you have a position there and then you have to fly back to amsterdam to work. Dutch labor rules states that you will only be offered a job if the job you are applying for:1) you are the most qualified speak dutch and you have to prove that you are more qualified than a person living there. They will be offered the position first. I have been to amsterdam 10 times and I have done a little research. My friend was there and gota job getting room and board by standing outside central station and try and solicit people to stay at the hotel he was working for.
Prices from EUR 117
This hotel offers boutique-style rooms with free Wi-Fi and iPod docking station. It is set in the scenic and peaceful Grachtengordel-We.... >>
