Germany is one of the strongest and leading economies in the world and the powerhouse of a whole continent: Europe. Since years the country experiences an economic miracle and steadily offers more than 1,3 million (!) vacant jobs (sources: IAB/AfA, see the images). 

Especially in IT, engineering, technology, craft, production, medicine/healthcare, sales, office and many, many other professions (list of most wanted professions here). According to the OECD Germany now is the #2 of the most popular and attractive countries in the world for foreign women and men, who look for


  • good and well-payed jobs (currently 1,3 million vacant positions)
  • want to make an internationally accepted career
  • study at some of the best universities (4.316 bachelor programmes / 425 universities)
  • internships / traineeships (=Praktika) for first job experience
  • or excellent apprenticeships / vocational trainings to become a professional 
    (currently 580.000 vacant apprenticeships for over 326 recognized training professions)

Jobsearch, job change, applying for jobs, job interviews or having successful salary negotiations and making career in Germany often is very different to your home country and to other countries in the world.

And that's why more than 70% (!) of foreign professionals & young talents (f/m) face unnecessary problems here. They could get many more excellent and well-payed jobs in Germany more easily. But they simply don't know, how to increase their chances. And they don't understand or follow the German process of hiring and applying for jobs. 


Fatal mistakes ruin your chances for good jobs! Is your application for Germany really perfect? You are an experienced professional, a manager, a graduate or simply a young woman / man and look for a very good job in Germany? But you get rejected many times or don't get any reactions from the companies? Then you most likely apply wrong and make 1 or more of the following, fatal mistakes many foreigners (f/m) make:

  • Cover Letter (= Bewerbungsschreiben): 
    much too long/short - non-existent - egocentrism with stereo-ptypes and (too much) self-praise - psychological unwise - "begging" formulations - chanting the CV - looks like a  spam letter - not targetes to the job & position - no structure - no paragraphs - name of contact person missing/ spelt wrongly - inappropriate/casual email address - empty phrases - rude - too familiar - unmotivated - urges action from the recruiter - makes demands - . . .
  • CV / Resume (Lebenslauf): 
    wrong format - critical structure - non-focussed - no C3-strategy - using the Europass CV model (at all and in the wrong way) - data incorrect - false information (= "hard lies") - important data missing - badly designed - email address infantile/ nonserious - (hiding) gaps - . . .
  • Photo: 
    non-professional (e.g. by mobile phone) - private - non-existent - full-body - too small/big - inappropriate clothing - wrong position - outdated - looks younger/different than in reality - no smile - "police photo" - ...
  • Competence Profile (for managers, experienced professionals & experts):
    completely missing - unknown?
  • References:
    missing - problematic - too short
  • Other mistakes: 
    inconsistent in typeface/fonts - mistakes in orthography / punctuation - spam applications (e.g. other companies in the email body) - . . .
