Hi! I’m Uruguayan, copywriter, ACD/CD level with 13 years of experience, half in my tiny country, the second half in Brasil. I’m on this bowl because I’d like to live and work in Amsterdam someday. I was waiting for some insights about the market and the city but as you have said not too much activity around here.
Do you have any tips to try to get a job there? Recruiters or ECD? Which one would be the best way? Any agency open to foreigners?
Thanks in advance.


V rarely

I’m here;)

Been here for almost a year and nothing much going on. Usually I’m on other bowls not specific to Amsterdam.

Ok that’s four of us one place. Maybe we can help each other out a little in this dark time?

What do you guys find most enjoyable and most frustrating about life in Amsterdam? And what advice would you like? Not sure I can help but let’s see...

I think things are generally easy to figure out here actually. During these times though it’s been tough to follow (I don’t know Dutch yet) and then stress about what’s going to happen next. Our director at my job tells us to not worry, that the government provides assistance in times like this. Can’t help it... all my projects (which is in France), have been canceled/delayed indefinitely . Anyway, how’s everyone else doing? 🙃

I joined fishbowl a month ago and while I’ve seen a couple contentious debates but I must say I’m pleasantly surprised at how respectfully ppl comment on this app even when disagreeing.

I wonder what makes this app diff frm others?
