In the following video Romain shares his job experiences and tips with expats in Germany. Have a look!
What brought me to Germany
I came to Berlin because it’s really like the new Silicon Valley of Europe, and I thought I had a chance to find a job in a startup that would giveÂ me the chance to achieve high responsibility very quick.
My experience searching for a job in Germany
I was looking online at different websites and I found my first job on a French Germany website that connects people – it’s really specialized in this kind of relationship because France and Germany have a specialÂ history.
My second job was a reference from a friend of mine. We worked together for two years, and then he quit for a new company and decided to go for a new opportunity. At his company theyÂ were looking for French people to open the French market, so I decided to give it a try with them.
Having a network in Germany is really important. You have a lot of startup events and get-togethers that help you a lot to meetÂ new people.
My #1 tip for expat jobseekers in Germany
One advice is first:
First just find a job in Germany!
This is the first point. A lot of people have difficulty to find a first good job when they arrive because the salaries are not very high, especially in Berlin. Find yourself a job that has ‘OK pay’ for one year, and then try to climb the employment ladder step-by-step.
