Dutch job site NVB launches personalized career advice
07 Oct 2016
The new career advice site has 25 mentors consulting job seekers on how to write cover letters and prepare applications. They also respond to questions pertaining to their specific work situations.
The service is available from 9 in the morning to 9 at night on weekdays in the form of an online chat, phone calls, or with the exchange of emails.
This personalized service for job seekers is aimed at recouping market share lost by general job sites in many markets as specialized and niche jobs sites, and aggregators, social networks and apps grew in popularity.
“The heyday of job sites, such as NVB and Monsterboard.nl, is already more than ten years behind us,” a Dutch financial publication wrote recently (full article in Dutch here).
NVB has around 25,000 listings and one million CVs in its database. According to SimilarWeb, it has one million visits per month on average. NVB has been nominated website of the year in the Netherlands for several consecutive years.
