Hi, I'm an Egyptian/British girl in my early 20s and I'm deciding to move to Amsterdam. I'm doing that on my own. I speak fluent English and Arabic.

I have enough savings to last for a couple of months.

I still don't have my bachelor degree because I am studying psychology full time through a distance learning program in a UK university which also means I'm free to move around and work full time as well. I barely have any work experience but I'm a hard worker and a very fast learner.

The thing is, everyone keeps telling me that I won't be able to find a job at all or at least one that supports the living costs in a city like Amsterdam. So I guess my question is about job availability to a person in my situation and also average salaries in this case.

Ps; I own a dog that I'm planning to take with me so I'm also wondering if that may cause a problem when searching for accommodation.
