After a jobhunt I had two nice offers. The first meant more or less a continuation of my previous career, the second something completely new. I chose the second: a dynamic commercial position in a small company. I was in for it! However, after a short time it proved to be a big mistake: it is a complete mismatch. Would it make sense for me to contact the company that made me the other offer?

After starting in a managerial position, my wife lost a child by miscarriage. As a result my work performance was sub-optimal. In order to better support my wife, I accepted a lower job as process engineer. After been employed on a temporary basis for two years now, again I got offered a one year contract, although I expected a permanent contract. I am extremely indignant about it. How can I improve my situation? Should I apply elsewhere?

I am Indian and I obtained my PhD in semiconductor physics in England. I worked as a software engineer for two years at a telecommunications company in the Netherlands. In the last round of cuts I lost my job. I moved down here at the time with my family and we would like to stay in the Netherlands. I have a residence permit but not a new work permit. How should I approach the Dutch market?
