I'd like to go to Amsterdam or other dutch cities to work, unspecialized work as I don't have a university degree. Even flipping burgers at McD's is fine by me, I don't give a shit anymore.
I have double nationality (italian-dutch) so I don't even need a visa. I'm 26. Can speak dutch decently, I supplement it with some english words if I need to. I have 600 euros left on my bank account. My sister lives in Amsterdam so I can pay her a visit too, but I don't wanna be a parasite and stay at her house even a single night, I want to go there specifically so I can become more independent. I still live with my parents, my pa disapproves of every decision I make even work-related ones (a-la "get a job son, no not that one!") so I gotta go, I love him very much, he only wants the best for me but he's smothering me, besides I'm 26 it's high time I packed things up.
My questions are:
1) how expensive is Amsterdam? If it's too expensive for a low-end job wage, what other preferably larger cities in the NL can I go to? Enschede seems nice and presumably a lot cheaper than Amsterdam. Is Rotterdam really the crime-ridden shithole people say it is?
2) how do you find a place to rent in the NL? Do they have a go-to site for that kind of stuff? Other ways I'm not privy to? I even thought of staying at a hostel instead, is that even feasible?
3) how do you find a job in the NL? There's Randstad, which is one job portal. Any other I should be aware of? Like I said I could be flipping burgers at McD's, work at a train station, clean up pop corn at a theater I don't give a shit, anything's fine
