JobOn

Do you have questions about working in the Netherlands? On the JobOn website you will find several informative videos about working in the Netherlands as a refugee from Ukraine. For instance, information about regulations and obstacles. The videos are subtitled in Ukrainian.


Help with CV writing

Are you looking for someone to review your CV to make it easier for you to find a job? Peer-to-peer CV is an initiative that helps refugees from Ukraine to improve their CVs. All you have to do is upload your CV and choose a domain/specialisation in which you want to find a job. The applicant and reviewer communicate through a chat and rewrite the CV together. Would you like to use this service? Then go to the website.


Writing a motivation letter

Sometimes, in addition to a CV, a job vacancy may ask for a motivation letter. In this letter you describe why you are a good match for the job and the company. It can be quite difficult to write a good cover letter, so there are tips and examples. You can find many more on Google.


Webinars

The Foundation Ukrainians in the Netherlands has organised three webinars about finding a job in the Netherlands. For example, they will discuss how to prepare well for a job interview. The webinars are only available in Russian and can be viewed via the website below.
