Expat Jobs in Germany Tips: Noella, a French Expat

Noella shares with expats her Germany job experiences and tips in the following video. Watch it now!

Video transcription

I’m Noella and I’m a French expat in Berlin. I’m a customer care agent and I’ve lived in Berlin for one year now.

What brought me to Germany

I was looking for an internship for my studies and I found an internship in Berlin and really liked the city so I decided to come back. I learned German as my first language at school, so I wanted to speak German and speak English at the same time, and Berlin seemed like a good city to do it.

Berlin is an interesting city to live in. You can be different, you can be normal, you can be whatever you want, and you can meet a lot of people from different countries. It is a nice city, and it is cheap.

My #1 tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

Noella's tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

For the first job I would say just take whatever you can – just come to Berlin, meet some people, and then you can find a better job – in the beginning just don’t be so picky.

I would like to speak German, but in Berlin you can live without speaking German – it is not so important for living, but we should all make the effort to learn German when we are living in Germany. It was surprising how you can have a good job and even promotions without speaking German, so even if I’m saying it is important to speak in German, it is still possible to have a really good career and opportunities without German.

It is really nice to work in some companies because they are really international with many different people from different countries – it is always good to meet different people.
