Over 200 alumni from the Holland Alumni Network visited the fair, looking for new opportunities within these Dutch companies.

Potential Matches

It was a good day for both the Dutch companies as the professionals looking for a new job. Many companies mentioned to have spoken to interesting, potential candidates at the fair. For the professionals, this event was the perfect opportunity to have an informal conversation with the representatives of the Dutch companies. It was also a great opportunity for them to catch up with their peers and discuss the job hunt in general. Simultaneously, the participating companies had a chance to interact with each other.

After the Holland Talent Fair a cocktail reception was organized for Dutch companies that participated in the Holland Talent Fair and for members and potential members of the Holland House Mexico.
