Congress: Internationalization of the labor market


The job market is becoming increasingly international. And that’s fine, because with the current shortages and shortages, almost everyone is welcome. But how easy is it to come to the Netherlands? What is involved if you want to recruit across the border? For example, how can you properly compare diplomas and work experience? And in which media can you reach your target group? What is needed if people want to settle in the Netherlands?

We will discuss this on February 14, 2023, during the very first Congress on the Internationalization of the Labor Market ever held in the Netherlands. Among other things, we will discuss what the most popular professions are for knowledge workers and how attractive the Netherlands actually is for job seekers across the border. We also look at the (im)possibilities of housing and education, and regional human capital agendas.


At this moment we are working hard on the program, as soon as the speakers are known you will find them below.
