On 10th of April the first event of Holland House Mexico, the Holland Talent Fair in Mexico, was organised in close cooperation with Nuffic Neso, Dutch Energy Association and The Netherlands Embassy in Mexico. This event was organised to bring Dutch companies in contact with Mexican professionals who studied in the Netherlands, and are currently looking for a new career opportunity. The Holland Talent Fair was officially opened by Margriet Leemhuis, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Mexico, Carin Verbree, Manager of Holland House Mexico and  Sander Verkijk, Chief Representative Officer of Nuffic Neso in Mexico.

Dutch corporates in Mexico-City

It was a very successful first event with 10 large Dutch corporates which had a booth at the ‘job market’.  The following  Dutch companies were represented at the event: Heineken, KLM-Air France, Shell, Ausnutria, Randstad, IPS Powerful People, Vopak, Boskalis, Van Oord and DLL (Lage Landen). More than 190 alumni of the Nuffic Neso network were present at the fair, looking for new opportunties at these Dutch companies.

Potential matches

It was a good day for both the Dutch companies as the professionals looking for a new job. Many companies mentioned to have spoken to interesting, potential candidates at the fair. For the professionals, this event was the perfect opportunity to have an informal conversation with the representatives of the Dutch companies. It was also a great opportunity for them to catch up with the others after their studies in the Netherlands.

After the Holland Talent Fair a cocktail reception was organised for Dutch companies that participated in the Holland Talent Fair and for members and potential members of the Holland House Mexico.
