In Netherlands, almost everyone speaks English, which is a key factor for those who plan to move to the Netherlands to work or study. Knowledge of Dutch language is compulsory for citizenship. There are many foreigners who live and work here. Expats are eligible for 30% ruling benefits (a tax discount), which is a great advantage of working as an expat in the Netherlands.
In this country, women are highly respected by men. Here I have never experienced such thing as mansplaining, a phenomenon when a man comments on or explains something to a woman in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner. Although it is fair to say that I have never experienced mansplaining while working in international companies in Kazakhstan as well.
There are few Dutch women in top management positions mainly due to high childcare costs I think.
I plan to move forward, grow and advance. I believe that when you are in a comfort zone, you need to look for new horizons. I also want to give back to the society. For instance, help others achieve their goals.You can send your success stories to email@example.com
