Expat Jobs in Germany Tips: Pascal, a French Expat

Pascal shares his  Germany job experiences and tips with expats in the following video. Check it out!

Video transcription

Hi, my name is Pascal and I’m a French expat in Germany. I’m a designer and I have lived in Germany for one year now.

What brought me to Germany

A lot of my friends were actually telling me that if they would move somewhere one day they would go to Germany – so I was looking for a new job/new opportunities and obviously I came to Germany because I heard so many things about it – so I said OK lets see.

My experience searching for a job in Germany

Everybody was telling me that Berlin is THE city for jobs, for party haha, for everything actually – so I said OK lets go to Berlin. I found my job doing research online.

Berlin is super relaxed – a very relaxed city. People are really easy-going, so its really cool, and the job is the same, very easy-going and really relaxed. I really like that. Berlin is you know, a capital/huge city, but at the same time you feel like it’s a kind of village – so it’s really nice.

You have to speak German, I mean, I don’t speak a word at the moment haha, but I don’t have the choice – I will have to learn at some point because you can really see that if you don’t try to speak German it is a bit more complicated. It’s not that it’s impossible to live in Germany if you don’t speak German, you can, it’s really doable but it’s way easier if you speak German.

My #1 tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

Pascal's tip for expat jobseekers in Germany

I would say prepare everything if you can – all the papers, all that kind of stuff. Try to think about getting some information on the Internet before coming. Try to contact some people who are actually living in Germany – like on Facebook I am in a group called “The French of Berlin” and it’s actually really useful – if you have a question people can help you out and all – try to get some information on the Internet.
