I'm wanting to move to Amsterdam, thinking about buying a one-way ticket and getting a job in a coffee shop or something similar. Anyone got any advice or tips?

I doubt it's as easy as just hopping on a plane and getting a job. I'm guessing jobs in coffeeshops are quite sought after. I'd think this though a little more before you jump right into it.

Don't you have to have some skills or qualifications to get a job in australia. It seems like they dont just let anyone in.

Ahh sweet. I imagine that it would be difficult to get a job in a coffee shop in Amsterdam on the basis that you're not local, or at least from the region, plus there's the demand for such a role.

Of course, if you knew someone who owned/worked in one that would help. Perhaps a few trips to befriend a few people working in one would be wise, if this is what you really want to pursue Smiley

I live in A'dam and frequent coffeeshops(mainly to buy) on a daily basis. Do you speak multiple languages?

Do you have expereince in the service industry?

where are you from?

have you looked at the costs of living in A'dam, it is an expensive city?

Have you looked into the requirements needed to find employment here?


edit: also around 50-70 shops are set to close next year due to new government regulations regarding distance from a school.

I don't think that's true, I've also been there a few times site seeing myself and have the ability to pick things up quick.

I believe to be a budtender all that is required is knowledge about cannabis and what strains would be best for the customers requirement whether it be for medical reasons or to just get high. I am starting to think it's going be hard to get though since it's a dream job for most stoners but then again do most stoners know much about cannabis.

You are over glorifying a job in the service industry, trust me I am passionate about cannabis and have been for many years and when i was younger i thought a CS job would be cool and a good use of my passion.

Since living here for 1.5 years i have watched many new BT's come and go, when they first arrive they are enthused in their jobs, eager to learn, happy to see boxes of weed, happy to talk to customers and try and make recommendations.

Almost always about 3 weeks into their job they have lost enthusiasm, they hate looking at the boxes of weed they cna't smoke and their boss makes a pretty penny from a 50% mark up
, they resent the tourists, they resent their regulars who can come in and afford supply, they resent their long boring hours of serving the same shit over and over again. recommending crap to tourist only to have them ignore you or question your choices, the hardest part for me would be recommending half the shit the coffeeshops sell as high grade weed, when in reality it is fresh unflushed commercial shit.

Basically it's not a great job, few stay passionate and the ones that are happy are normally the owners.

edit: saying that i have met a few who have been here a long time and are true honest people who loved their job, although no longer working due to their shop being closed during school hours now and due to close next year. Amsterdam is not the place it once was, many of the old faithful are moving ship to spain or USA.
