The countdown to ITEA 2017

Amsterdam’s exceptional talent pool, which includes international graduates from the city’s world class universities, is set to take part in the International Talent Event Amsterdam (ITEA). ITEA is an event designed to connect these talented jobseekers with companies that their skills and knowledge will benefit the most. The event is a collaboration between the University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, INHolland University of Applied Sciences, amsterdam inbusiness and the Amsterdam Economic Board.

Connecting talent with opportunities

The upcoming edition of ITEA held on 21 April 2017 will enable participants to interact with recruiters from exciting companies, ranging from multinational corporations to startups. A full programme of workshops, seminars and ‘speed coaching’ sessions will equip graduates with all manner of skills required to enter the workforce.

The 2017 event is expected to attract a similar turnout.

Students will receive tips for making their CVs stand out, interviewing techniques and personalised career guidance from experienced coaches. Photographers will be on site to snap those increasingly important LinkedIn profile pictures, in collaboration in Young Financials. Specialists will also be on hand to answer questions about the orientation year permit, the 30% tax ruling, tax benefits and other financial and immigration issues specific to the Netherlands.
