  • Has been in the Netherlands for 4.5 years
  • MSc Utrecht University
  • Global Risk Governancy & Strategy Associate at ABN AMRO Clearing Bank

I did my Bachelor in Athens and then I came to Utrecht to do a Master of Economics and Law. During my master’s studies, I did not have a career advisor, so I had to do everything by myself.

Luckily, I have a big network of friends and I am a social person, so networking was very easy. However, finding a job was not very easy. I have reached many points when I was thinking, ‘Why am I rejected all the time?’

However, you should not underestimate the time and effort it takes to find a job. Apply as much as possible. You will get a lot of rejections, but be passionate about what you want to do and chase it!
