“Berlin! You are so wonderful” sang Kaiserbase, and we have to agree. From colourful flea markets in Friedrichshain to hip bars in Neukölln to elegant coffee houses in Mitte, activities in Berlin are not just confined to the city centre. Alongside numerous museums and the classic sights of the capital, each district of Berlin offers its own unique flavour. The cultural diversity of Berlin is a big draw not only for homegrown job seekers, but for those on the job hunt all over the world.
But it’s not just the culture and lifestyle that makes the city on the Spree so attractive for job seekers. Berlin is the German – even European – startup capital. According to the German Startup Monitor 2014, 39% of German startups have their headquarters in Berlin. As a result, many job opportunities are in Internet and software disciplines, but bigger, established companies are always on the hunt for talent too, e.g. Deutsche Bahn and Wall AG. International companies like Bayer, Daimler, E.ON and Vodafone also have offices in the German capital. Last but not least, the Berlin media industry offers an array of job opportunities. In addition to television and radio stations, the capital is home to a large number of well-known marketing and communications agencies that offer job seekers a variety of perspectives.
Young professionals looking for a great job opportunity should try their luck in the Federal Capital: a large percentage of jobs are made up of junior and internship positions, particularly in young Internet companies. In the Spree metropolis, there are always exciting, innovative startups looking for new team members. Marketing, PR and Product Development skills are particularly in demand. Web designers and software developers also have abundant chances to make it in Berlin – as in most countries, IT professionals are highly coveted!
