Little context: Non-EU country citizen working in the tech industry as a frontend developer for nearly 2 years now. Self taught / no CS degree. The time spent in industry is not too much, but according to my workplace reviews and conversations with colleagues, I'm considered a pretty decent (mid-level) developer.
My next goal is to move to the Netherlands where I will continue to cultivate my career as a software developer. There are few reasons for this ambition, few of which are: better living standards, the culture and, for me personally, the climate.
However, I haven't had any luck in finding companies that are willing to sponsor the relocation process. For my investigations, I mainly use LinkedIn but I might be missing a ton of companies that might be willing to help a Non-EU citizen to relocate.
Because of that, I have two questions:
- Is there a specific way or a strategy to recognize companies that offer relocation packages? Maybe a website, or LinkedIn filter?
- Is cold emailing the recruiters with resume attached and a question regarding relocation package a good strategy?
I'm looking for ways that will improve my chances of finding a company that is willing to sponsor the relocation process.
