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?
