JOBS & CAREER. MADE IN GERMANY.
Germany, a leading country in excellence, is one of the strongest economies in the world and the powerhouse of a whole continent: Europe. Since years Germany experiences an economic miracle ("The German Job Wunder"). Currently the companies offer >1,41 million (Q4/2019) vacant jobs. (*source: German IAB Institute for employment Research)
Especially in IT, engineering, technology, craft, production, medicine & healthcare, marketing & 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 immigrants. And that means especially for foreign women and men, who look for:
- jobs, that are excellent, secure, permanent and well-payed (currently 1,41 million vacant positions)
- careers, that are highly respected internationally
study and graduate at some of the best universities
(>4.300 bachelor programmes / 425 universities)
- internships / traineeships (=Praktika) for first job experience
- internationally appreciated apprenticeships to become a highly-skilled professional (currently 580.000 vocational trainings in 326 recognized training professions)
BUT: Job search, job change, applying for jobs, job interviews or salary negotiations and making career in Germany are quite different to your home country and to other countries in the world. And that's why about 70% (!) of foreign professionals & young talents 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.
"List of Mistakes": Why 70% of foreigners (f/m) ruin all their chances for good jobs in Germany.
