The German job market: A challenge for expats
Navigating the German job market can be challenging - and sometimes a bit frustrating. When searching for a job, the things that worked great for you during the application process back home suddenly seem like they’re not working.
If you’ve just taken a job outside your field to get started abroad, you might find that you have trouble moving forward in your career and getting back to where you feel like you really belong.
Learn what German employers are looking for in a job-winning applicant at this free webinar
All in all, the unique structure of the German job market can feel unfamiliar to international job seekers, who are often used to the flexibility of the international job market.
Successfully navigating the labour market in Germany not only requires basic knowledge of how to correctly formulate your cover letter and application, but also a solid understanding both of what German employers value in an applicant and how the German job market functions. What does a good resume look like, and what does it mean to have a “good career”? What does success look like? How is it measured? Who’s qualified for what - and why do they always want to see your certificates? How do Germans approach the application process, and how might that different from what you're familiar with in your home country?
