Why I started my career in the Netherlands
I believe the Netherlands’ entrepreneurial spirit is inspiring; its people and creativity have always been attractive to me.
A typical work week
Work-life balance is an important aspect of the life in the Netherlands. My typical working week starts on Monday, at 9 am. I work 40 hours per week so every day from 9 am to 6 pm. The first couple of hours of my morning I start with replying to my emails to customers, after 11 am I start working on new requests and a variety of projects. Some days I go to the gym in the morning before work.
As part of my work I am participating in several initiatives; for example I am in charge of the EMEA newsletter of my team, another project is working to better understand the customer experience involved in our purchasing process.
What I like about the Dutch work mentality
Balance! Having time to enjoy your life outside the working hours.
My career advice to you
