How can I find a job in Germany? The German Economy is booming, which is
why it needs qualified international professionals. Demand for qualified staff is especially
high in technical professions and the health sector. So if you have the
right professional and linguistic skills you have every chance of finding a job in Germany. Let us show you how to go about it. First of all, check if
you are entitled to work in Germany and if you need a visa to travel here. Many professionals require
you to have your university degree or vocational diploma recognized. You can find detailed information about
visas, getting your qualifications recognized and learning German on the
“Make it in Germany” welcome portal. How can you start looking for a job? We recommend the job listings
on the “Make it in Germany” website. You can filter the list
of jobs by profession and region. You can also subscribe to a job newsletter. There are private labour agencies
and job exchanges to help you find a job. You can even travel to Germany to look for a job. Depending on which country
you come from, you might need a visa to do so. You can find out more about visas,
recognition of qualifications, job hunting, moving house
and getting settled in Germany by phoning the Working and Living in Germany Hotline. You can put your questions in German or English. Once you have found
a suitable job, send in an application. Applying for a job involves
sending a cover letter, a CV and diplomas. In the cover letter explain
why you want to work for the company and why you are the right person for the job. You will find examples
if you search on the internet for: “Cover letter, job application, template”. A CV shows the main facts
about your training, professional experience and skills. It is also customary to
include information such as your age and family status. If the company wants an application in German, you can have important
documents, such as diplomas translated. This allows employers to judge
and compare your achievements and skills. However, you can also
apply to many companies in English. If a company is interested,
you will be invited to a job interview. The company will have read
your CV, cover letter and diplomas and will ask questions about them. You might also be asked
about your salary expectations. However, the question should not be too private. You do not have to tell the company your
religious faith or if you want to have children. Inversely, you can ask questions
about the company and the vacancy. Many companies will be
glad to assist you and your family in moving to Germany
and taking all the administrative steps. You can ask about that, too during the interview. Good luck! To find out more about job hunting in Germany visit www.make-it-in-germany.com
