Finding a job in Germany is not easy, especially not for foreigners. Even though the startup scene is flourishing and IT professionals are needed everywhere. But why is that? The problem is that there are a lot of unwritten rules. Furthermore, like many other countries, Germany has it’s own rules and regulations with respect to the hiring process. The sad thing is that most foreigners find out about them the hard way – by getting rejected a lot. This is a very hard and depressing experience.
Why should you be looking for a job in Germany?
If you’re not looking for a job in Germany, let me explain why you should be: Germany has a strong economy, the startup scene is booming, and IT professionals are needed everywhere. Digitalization is adding up to the need for more IT professionals, as big players like Volkswagen, Daimler, and Porsche acknowledge their need for more IT.
Aside from economics, Germany is a lovely country spanning from the alps in the south to the sea in the north. We have nice food and good beer, so what are you waiting for?
German IT Jobs – getting you hired in Germany
To solve the issue of foreign IT professionals getting rejected for German jobs although they’re very qualified, I’ve teamed up with a recruiter. He has been in recruiting for at least five years and seen the issues foreign candidates have in Germany. Together we are building German IT Jobs, a site that allows foreign IT professionals to apply in Germany. To do this, we have selected several interesting German startups willing to offer their jobs to foreign candidates. Currently, most of the positions are for English-speaking candidates by the way. So if you’d like to work for one of them, we’ll help you getting hired: For example by checking your resumé or CV, by giving you useful tips, and finally by telling you about the unwritten rules I mentioned earlier. After we’ve checked your stats, we’ll directly introduce you to the tech staff, so you’ll be able to skip the boring HR interviews and get straight to the programming-related interview where you can shine!
