Amsterdam’s international talent pool 

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is home to a large pool of internationally-oriented employees with lots of potential. For many international companies established in Amsterdam, this is one of the most important reasons to do business here. Still, it can be a challenge to find a perfect match between employer and potential employee.

Careers collaboration

That’s why some of the leading universities and colleges in Amsterdam – the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the VU University Amsterdam, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) and Inholland University of Applied Sciences – have joined forces with amsterdam inbusiness and the Amsterdam Economic Board  to organise the International Talent Event Amsterdam 2014 (ITEA2014).

Amsterdam City Hall

Demonstrating the importance of the event for Amsterdam, ITEA2014 will be held in Amsterdam City Hall and Mayor van der Laan will officially open the event. During a day packed with career activities, 27 business partners will participate and have the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting potential employees in the Amsterdam Area.
