My husband was invited to move to the Netherlands to work as IT specialist. We are moving with him (me and 2-year old son). I need to know what documents are required to be translated/apostilled/ notarially confirmed for me to be able to find a job? We are from Russia. Thank you.
The information you need starts at this document at the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation service.

The links leading from the 1st and 4th sections apply to you, but is far too much information to quote here.
And as Eugen commented, the company may be able to help you out; they may know what is required for wives and children of their foreign employees.
We don't have children so that the papers list might be slightly different. We are from Ukraine, but I think there should not be much difference for Russian people.
You don't need any document to find a job. You need be visa to have on-site interview if it is required.
When job offer is secured and contract is signed. Then also to getting working permit you need:
- Birth certificate translated and apostilled
- Marriage certificate translated and apostilled
I assume you need birth certificate for child as well, but it is better to ask IND.
