Career coaching in English

Do you know which qualities helps you to find your target?

Rubik Coaching offers coaching in making study choices in the Netherlands and with career questions as a young professional. I help you to find the right study or to find a fitting job.

In this search a lot of people have troubles with identifying themselves. You have been doing a lot of things in your life, but you are not aware about the influence this has on your personality. A big difference between the Netherlands and a lot of other countries, is that we ask of you to have this self-reflection and self presentation. We think its very important to know why you make certain choices and why you are the person that you are. Sometimes that difference is really hard.

Being coached by me, means that we are coming together for a few times. Working with different assignments, games and tests will help you to get more information about yourself and your options.

With my background I have a lot of knowledge about the educational system, schools and universities. I also have a feeling about what kind of possibilities and boundaries studying in the Netherlands as a foreigner brings along. I can help you prepare in what to expect.

Working with me also means that I might sometimes be struggling with some words. My English is not perfect, but my personal skills will cover that 😉

As a study counselor and career coach I like to help people to find the right school, university or possibilities for a working life around here.

This is me! Let me help you.

In this website I, Annelies Hovestad,  tell my visitors more about me as a carreercoach and adviser in college and university choices.  

After growing up in a small village in the Netherlands I started my studies with becoming a primary school teacher. A world which is small and full of boundaries that made me feel narrowminded. I started travelling and studying more, started doing loads of different jobs in different parts of the Netherlands and world. It made me feel part of the world.

Being glad with lots of experiences I have recently lived in Canada as being the ‘expats wife’ and being a mom of 2 kids. It gave me the experience of how hard it can be to find your way in life and work within a new country. Even though Canada is a very modern and western country, small cultural differences can have a huge impact on your life and well being. It made me look different towards our Dutch way of doing things. It inspired me to commit myself to helping out others here.

Within Canada I have coached a few people towards a new carreerpath. I also have coached people who were welcomed in the Netherlands to start a new life. I think I can make a difference for you. I have two bachelor degrees in coaching and education and am registered as coach with BKA.

I have knowledge of the companies, organisations and schools in Eindhoven and surroundings. I also have knowledge of how to improve your chances when searching and applying for jobs.  

Feel free to get in touch.  A first meet-up is always free and i might be able just to help you out within that time.

My hourly rate for coaching after the first meet-up is €70,- an hour + 21% taxes.  In general we will need about 6 to 8 hours to help you out. In this time I will get to know you as a person and we will figure out your wishes. We will have a good look at your experiences and how to transform them in to Dutch possibilities. Also we will have a look at your resume and way of writing applications.

Love to meet you, feel free to get in touch.
