The Latest Issue of Access Magazine Out Now!

Written by Gabriel Rodriguez
The Latest Version of the Access Magazine - Now Available for Download!

As an international here in the Netherlands, have you ever run into cultural and bureaucratic hurdles for which you wish you’d been more prepared? Based on our own personal experiences, we’re guessing the answer is probably yes. But never fear, because there is help out there! For over 30 years, Access has been getting important information and resources out to expats in order to help them build successful, happy lives here in the Netherlands. This includes everything from practical information such as how to get housing or health care to more cultural information such as Dutch etiquette and traditions, as well as how to find and build social networks!


In recent years, Access has been a fantastic partner to us at Volunteer The Hague, helping us to get our message about the importance of volunteering out to our expat community. We’re excited about the services they offer and the work that they do, so we’re both happy and proud to continue our partnership with them in the future. In that spirit, we’re thrilled to announce that Access Magazine’s new issue for Spring 2021 is now available on their website. In this issue, you’ll find features on important topics such as tips and tricks to make the relocation process easier, ways to stay sane during lockdown, current events, and more!


And if you like this issue, you can also go back and look at their magazine archive so you can peruse previous issues as well! Don’t forget to also take a look at their website to find the most important and up-to-date information on how to make a great life for yourself here in the Netherlands, as well as information about how to contact them directly for advice. We hope you’ll find Access to be as brilliant as a resource as we do!

How volunteering can positively impact your job prospects and professional life Application, interview, job offer — wouldn’t it be nice if getting a new gig was always as simple as this? As internationals in this country, we need to do more to stand out as candidates and enhance our skills while making valuable connections. Volunteering can be a smart way to help you ease into the job market and provide you with the necessary support network.  Many job seekers do not realize the value of volunteering for building relationships, extending their network and discovering new career opportunities. It might seem as their skills are not needed in volunteer work, or any time they spend volunteering takes away time that could be used for job seeking.  Taking time out of your own life to help others is a sure-fire way to impress prospective employers and challenge yourself too. It’s often the case that once you display your passion for the organisation and its mission, and have demonstrated your abilities, you’ll earn strong consideration when a paying position opens up that can benefit from your talents.  In this workshop you will discover:  how to leverage volunteering for career success; hidden career opportunities; strategies to adopt when considering at which organisation to volunteer; ways to build confidence and help the community; Speaker bio:  Tetyana Benzeroual, BSc (Hons) Psychology, has lived in The Hague since 2015. She started her career path in The Netherlands as a volunteer and later was hired as a project manager of Volunteer The Hague (https://volunteerthehague.nl), a project that connects internationals with meaningful volunteer opportunities at the local non-profits. Tetyana is a true citizen of the world who lived, studied and worked across North America and Europe. She is keen to share with you her experience and expertise, as well as to give you some insider tips on how volunteering can benefit your career.
