Date:2020-12-07 22:21

Hi, my fellows, Thursday is a good day!

I am HT technical guy, the strong database support behind HT office, who is occupied by the task of saving the world.

Since this is my first time to meet you guys, I got nervous,  but a little fling as well.

As I make a living by technology, I am here to show off cheekily.

The analysis of big data like the employment of international students in the Netherlands, the employment of students from all colleges in popular fields, the comparison among salaries at the workplace, even a variety of required professional skills and so forth, are all my inherent skills.

Turn on our channel on Thursday and you will get a probe for information:

the employment of international students in the Netherlands (work transfers) – Lv.87

the employment of students from all colleges in professional fields (specialized cases) – Lv.73

office skills (gain of skills) – Lv.98

Woooow, what an amazing skills tree!

Some fellows might ask me,

Is it necessary to work in the Netherlands after graduation?

I believe that no matter whether you are about to or have graduated,  you have something on your mind.

what are the advantages of overseas Chinese students in a highly international and intensely competitive Netherlands? 

To allow you to have a clear understanding of working in the Netherlands,

I am gonna analyze the merits of Chinese students in detail.

The general situation of international students in the Netherlands

Until the first half-year of 2018, 122,000 international students from 162 different countries have gone to Dutch colleges, the number of international students increased by 10,000 compared with last year.  

Among these, those students from EEA (European Economic Area) make up a relatively high percentage, while non-EU students are much less.

For Dutch colleges, most international students come from German (22,125), China (4,475), and Italy (4,077).

The situation of graduated international students working in the Netherlands

So how many graduated international students chose to work in the Netherlands?

I got some information from the survey carried out by Nuffic that counted from the time when they got a diploma, 38% of them live in the Netherlands after 5 years, 30% still live there after 10 years, 25% stay there even longer.

Compared with EU students, Non-EU students are more inclined to work in the Netherlands after graduation.

Chinese students vs other international students in Netherlands. 

You guys hope to work overseas after graduation, but getting a job is no easy, especially when the competition is fierce.

How to be outstanding among students from other countries has to be taken into consideration. 

A clear perception of your own merits and demerits will help in the Dutch workplace.

In general,

Overseas Chinese students are weaker at these three points below:

  1. Working visa

Companies in the Netherlands have to offer working visas for their non-EU employees. It’s not a big deal for some multi-national enterprises but will increase the cost of hiring considerably for most Dutch small and medium-sized enterprises, which, therefore, makes the companies a little more concerned when they hire Chinese international students.

  1. Language level

Proficient Dutch and English speaking are requisite skills for those who work in the Netherlands. However, Chinese students stay there shorter, probably they are not so good at Dutch, so they have limited choices in the workplace.

  1. Practical experiences

Past practical experiences are attached great importance at Dutch workplace. A large number of overseas Chinese students focus more on knowledge studies and have fewer chances to do internships abroad, so they are insufficient in practical experiences compared to students educated by western practical education.

Besides the aforesaid disadvantages, Chinese-background students are equipped with sparkling advantages.

  1. Language requirements

Not all Dutch companies prefer hiring Dutch or English-speaking employees, there are many enterprises that prefer Chinese-background candidates. Companies like Philips and Danone who need business in China are desperately in need of Chinese employees. The ability to speak Chinese is the biggest advantage.

  1. Expertise regarding China

Dutch companies in need of Chinese business expect their employees to be familiar with the working environment in the Netherlands and master the situation of the Chinese market. Overseas Chinese students receive international education in the Netherlands and are familiar with domestic development, which is greatly valued by bosses.

  1. Working attitudes

Employees of different nationalities have different working habits due to distinct cultures. Chinese employees are universally acknowledged as diligent and efficient. Which boss wouldn’t like such an employee?

In conclusion,

from all the data,

though EU students occupy a large proportion,

the advantages of Chinese students are irreplaceable.

How to put it in good use more efficiently and well-rounded requires professional tutorials.
