Job scenario in Germany

18/04/2017 - 15:15-83 Comments by | india flag

Hello Everyone ,

Hope you all are good. Its been long since I wrote, and I thought its time for me to give you some valuable information about something we all look forward to i.e. Jobs. Even when I was applying for the universities, one question always lingered in my mind, which is, will I get a job after my studies or I have to come back without anything. How is the job scenario in Germany? Do they prefer International students or not? Will language be a barrier and many more unanswered question?

Today its been more than six months in Germany and I can say I am confident as at least, I know now what it takes to get a job in Germany. From attending conferences to job fairs to interacting with seniors, I have got pretty good idea as how things are currently in Germany and so I will list down few important things for me to resolve few of your queries.

  • Most important thing, there are jobs. There is no scarcity or dearth of jobs, there are plenty but the question is whether you prepare yourself for the job or not while studying in Germany. It doesn’t matter what you have done till now. After you come here, interact with your seniors and ask them what particulars things companies ask for and learn that during your studies. You still have lot of time.
  • Attend job fairs and conferences hosted by industries and universities. At that time you will get to interact with the companies and you can ask them directly as what specific qualities they usually look for in a candidate. Make some contact. Its really helpful, believe me.
  • If you search on google, many people have written that jobs are not offered for international students. This is totally incorrect. When someone doesn’t get a job, they usually find some reason to blame someone. I will also write down the reasons why people don’t get jobs.
  • Germans are very particular about how you put forward your application. If you don’t fulfill the requirements, don’t apply. You will anyway get a rejection, its the same like while applying for Universities. When applying, one has to take care about what they have asked for in job advertisement and do you have what they are asking.
  • German language, every international student thinks its an arduous task to learn German and many people consider not to learn it to an extent where they are comfortable with it.  I would say, its not compulsory to learn so much German and its one priority to what they want to do. But, I have seen people who can speak good German getting jobs and internship faster than one who are not. You can get a job even without German language skills but I suggest there is no harm in learning it. So , don’t limit your options.
  • I tell you, I interacted with a company and they said ‘ Learn German, programming languages we will teach you’. So , I guess whether German language is important or not.
  • Coming on to Universities and courses. Universities won’t matter much and so will your grade. What matters is what have you studied and what projects have you done during your studies or any prior job experience if you have. So, do choose your course wisely before coming here.

I hope you have got some fair idea about how things are currently in Germany. Don’t worry too much about getting a job before coming here. When you come here, just make sure you make yourself into an asset. Learn new things and improve yourself everyday.

If you have anymore doubts, you can always contact me on fb and of course you can comment here. Good Luck!

    Hi Yash.
    After a lot of hard and painful googling, I finally stumbled upon your article. It is very well written and answered some of my questions. But I still have a few questions.
    What is the monthly expense in Germany (food + rent + travel)?
    Is IELTS score accepted and is it helpful in securing admission?
    In India, companies look at the college brand name. Does this exist in Germany also?

      Hi,
      Study-in.de is not an agency or advising service, and that’s why we cannot offer you any direct help with your application to German university. However, if you have general questions or want to be pointed in the right direction, please feel free to contact one of the DAAD offices all around the world https://www.daad.de/der-daad/kontakt/en/29344-addresses-telephone-numbers/

    Hi Yash,
    I’m confused about where to study. Where should I pursue my masters? Whether in USA or Germany? I’ve just completed my 7th semester in Information Technology and I want to do MS in CS(Specialization in either Machine Learning or AI) but I’m confused about the country. Should I go for USA or Germany? And one more thing I’ve heard is that after completing masters in Germany if we don’t get a job in our field in a specific period of time then the deport us back to our country. Is it true?

    As an international student, you are allowed to take up part-time employment along with your studies while in Germany. … Usually, as per university norms, a studentwould not be allowed to work for more than 20 hours in a week during term.Students, however, can take up full-time employment during vacations.

    What are the odds of getting a job in a field not related to my masters that was done in Germany. For instance, a job relating to my Bachelors degree which was not gotten in Germany. And could this have any implications on getting a Residence permit after studying. Thanks in advance

      Hi Vipra,

      all German universities offer a high-quality education, it’s difficult to say which programme or university is the best. You might say the best programme is the one which best meets your expectations.
      Unfortunately, we cannot really help you decide which programme or university is the best for you. This decision depends on many things. If you like to base your decision on official rankings, take a look at the following page: https://ranking.zeit.de/che/en/
      You can also have look at this Job database: https://jobboerse.arbeitsagentur.de/vamJB/startseite.html?aa=1&m=1&kgr=as&vorschlagsfunktionaktiv=true , which jobs are being offered currently.
      Best wishes,
