Sven shares his experience finding a job in Germany in the following video. Check it out!
Hi, my name is Sven and I’m a Croatian expat in Germany.
I’m an Account Manager for a company called Ad2Games and I’ve been living in Berlin for a month and a half now.
What brought me to Germany
The reason I came to Germany – well I don’t know what the reason I came to Germany is – I just came here randomly. I lived in the UK beforehand and I was just looking for jobs and I landed a job in Germany – so here I am.
My experience searching for a job in Germany
I was looking for a job through various websites. I did not really know how to look for it – I was just Googling it basically, and I was sending CV’s through application forms.
My #1 tip for expat jobseekers in Germany
The advice that I have for all the job seekers is: Try to use diverse keywords for your search for jobs – don’t just use “English speaking jobs Germany”, try to rephrase your searches. But also more importantly make sure that every time you send a CV and a cover letter, you edit it, you don’t send generic CV’s and cover letters because it’s just a waste of time – you might send them faster and send more but the chances are so much drastically lower that it’s just pointless. So, edit your CV’s and cover letters so they match the job description of the ad that you found.
