I would rate it to be a 9.5

I would come a little bit earlier than the first date of my new job in order to discover the country a little bit more in a clear mind. At least a couple of weeks before.
What has been the best part of your move?
Overall, everything being clear had caused me no stress. You wouldn’t want to have stress in a country that you have never been while settling in.
Any last tips or tricks?
Moving to another country, finding your way into your new life requires so much attention even in your smallest decision. EMG is there to help you with these, but one should also make research about each subject by themselves. From the beginning until the end, you will have a lot of steps to proceed with. Being organized and having small notes to yourself will help you a lot. Finally, do not hesitate to ask in the Netherlands. People love answering and helping out.
