Resources for Expats

Did you know that we have a page on our website dedicated to
national, regional and local expat resources?

Visit our Resources page for regional and national expat resources.

This page covers the basics for Dutch life, but we’re looking to expand what we can share.

Do you know of some great resources that would help other expats with their lives here abroad, locally and/or nationally? Know of any great websites that every expat should visit?

We love to hear from you, so send us your suggestions!

Jobs in the Netherlands

Did you know that tíc has a dedicated JOBS page to help expats find jobs in the Netherlands, and specifically in and around the Tilburg area?

We get many requests all year round for help with job searches. More and more job searches are done through social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook as well as through the professional networking site LinkedIn. In-person networking is also an important factor in getting a foot in the door. We can help you build your social and professional network through its many activities that bring expats together.

President’s Message – June 2020

Dear tic friends,

Summer is here! Of course, we are not welcoming summer in the usual way. Our holiday planning revolves around social distancing, checking regulations and, above all else, ensuring the health of our friends and loved ones. Although our lives and routines have changed, summer still brings the feeling of fun and relaxation. Even as the club season comes to a close, your board is already working on the program for the Welcome Event scheduled for 12 September 2020!

To say it has been a strange year would be an understatement. Despite having to cancel a portion of the season, tic still managed to plan and host almost 30 events! However, next year, we will be without our entire events team. Jessica and Anne-Lise will still be a part of the club but both are now taking time out to prepare for new bundles of joy! So, once again, we are asking for your help. If you would like to volunteer to assist in the planning of events, we would love you have you! It is a great way to get involved in your club, discover some fun things about the area and meet some interesting people. I started out on the board in events planning and I had so much fun organizing and learning things about my newly adopted country. If you have some time, I highly recommend it!

For now, I wish you and yours a great summer. Wherever your travels may take you – even if it is only to
your backyard – stay healthy and have fun. I look forward to welcoming you all back in September.

Wishing you healthy and sunny days,

Yolonda

President’s Message – May 2020

Dear tic friends,

What a bizarre time it is around the world! I’m writing this message to you from my newly renovated
home office (I couldn’t take standing at my kitchen counter anymore!) and trying to express to you all
how much I miss the interaction with my fellow club members.

With large events postponed throughout the Netherlands until at least September, this is essentially the end of the club year. While we are experimenting with virtual book club and, if that goes well, an online happy hour, all other events are cancelled or postponed for the remainder of the season. Your board is working on a way to have an interactive Annual General Meeting – perhaps with an online pub quiz after we update you on the status of your club. Keep an eye on our social media pages for updates on the AGM as well as tips and tricks for making the most of your time in quarantine.

Although it is no fun cancelling events or staying home, the health of you and your family will always be the number one priority. I hope you have been able to stay in touch with family and friends abroad and that you and your loved ones have remained healthy and safe. Take care and I hope to see you at a virtual event soon!

Stay healthy,

Yolonda

President’s Message – Mar 2020

Here we are in March already  … my, how time flies! I would like to use this platform just to let you know how dedicated and excited your Board is for the second half of this club season. There are the typical things on our agenda but what I’m most excited about is the May Market event for charity where our members chose Make-A-Wish Nederland as the foundation we want to sponsor this season.

Guests are Welcome!

Many expats feel, even after living in the Netherlands for a longer period of time, never fully welcomed into Dutch society and therefore, never feel an affinity with the culture. A key upside to being a guest of tíc, is getting out to meet locals, learning about the country, better understanding social routines and customs all within a supportive group of individuals and families with like circumstances. (more…)

Guests are always welcome at #TilburgInternationalClub events. It’s a great way to get a feel for the club, our members and the types of events you can come to expect as a member.  In the past, many of our guests have become members after a full tíc experience!

President’s message – Oct 2019

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems life is so busy and goes so fast that if you don’t slow down, you’ll miss it!  I made a commitment to myself to take a step back and start enjoying more of the things I love doing. And one of those things is being the president of tic!  With such a busy work schedule, I found myself passing on some of the fun activities the event team has been putting together. This club season, I decided to have more fun with my fellow club members while also taking more initiative to get the club increased exposure in the community. (more…)
