Working in Germany

If you’re looking for a job in Germany, the odds are definitely on your side. Germany has one of the highes employment rates in Europe, exciting career possibilites and a diverse job market to offer. At the same time, the country is currently experiencing a shortage of highly skilled workers and companies are desperately looking for qualified employees to fill open positions nationwide.

But just because the jobs are there, doesn’t mean they’re easy to find. Whether you’re looking for career counseling, industry contacts to expand your network, or support with your job applications – we’re here to help!

In Germany, culture standards and values are central to succeeding in your workplace. Whether it’s a job interview, a business meeting or even just a video conference call, punctuality is a sign of reliability and it might be noticed if you are late. German businesses also reward your loyalty, so be prepared to work hard and be patient – it will be worth it in the end.

However, fresh start-up companies, especially in the metropolitan areas of Berlin and Munich, are bringing about a change to the sometimes stiff company culture in Germany. The principle of “”work hard, play hard”” totally applies to them.

How many hours constitute a full-time job? In Germany, a full working week is defined as 40 hours, it is usually comprised of five eight-hour days (Monday to Friday).

If you’re looking for jobs in Germany, why not start by refreshing your profiles on professional networking platforms? To browse open positions for your preferred field of work, there are plenty of online job portals such as stepstone, monster or indeed. And while you’re at it, sign up for their job newsletters – this gives you the opportunity to stay updated on all new openings that might be of interest to you.

The Germany Employment Visa is an opportunity for qualified foreigners to find work in their field of expertise and get settled here. It gives you the chance to work in Germany for up to two years, with the possibility of extending the visa and later applying for an EU Blue Card or other types of residence permits. The Macromedia Career Service is happy to support you in the application process and give you all the information you will need.
