Expat Jobs in Germany Tips: Carla, a Spanish Expat

In the following video Carla tells expats in Germany about her  job experiences and tips. Check it out!

Video transcription

Hi, my name is Carla. I’m a Spanish expat living and working in Germany. I do sales operations for an Internet company in Berlin.

My experience searching for a job in Germany

I found my first job in Germany through Facebook – someone posted about it in a group. So I went there and it was a startup looking for Spanish speakers to do sales for the Spanish market.

My second job, I found it through my boss in my first company – he left to another company – I wanted to leave my job, and he had a position for me. So he just hired me; it was through a connection, I didn’t even write a CV or a cover letter – that guy was happy with my work so he hired me a second time.

My #1 tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

Carla's tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

The most important tip I would tell to someone that comes or wants to live and work in Germany is:

To be willing to do everything at the beginning, or like, getting any type of salary, and keep your connections and network because at the end it is what will give you some more money or some other good job. Here in Berlin, there are a lot of startups and everyone knows each other. At the end of the day if you are good at your job and someone leaves this job to another company and this company is better or bigger, and that person, if he or she was happy with you and you keep a good connection with him or her – most likely that person will hire you again.
