I need help / information on moving to Amsterdam. I have been doing a years worth of research and I think i'm ready to start applying for everything. As an American its impossible to move out there without a job lined up (which i cannot find) my profession is IT and i have been in the field for 3 years now. How do I obtain working permits and residency if I can't find a job? Is this still possible? I also was considering opening up my own IT consulting business in Amsterdam because it seemed "easier" to get into the country. If anyone who has good advice so i can kick start my journey that would be great.
