The employment situation in Germany has never been better. Companies in the Federal Republic are hiring left, right and centre, while unemployment figures are low and stable. Thanks to the strong German economy, companies are comfortable and willing to hire in numbers. This makes Germany an interesting location, not only for German job seekers, but for workers worldwide. German companies benefit from the influx of international professionals and the country as a whole is enriched as a result. In many German cities, English is now spoken almost as naturally as German. This makes it easier for people from all over the world to come to the Federal Republic, creating a rich melting pot in the heart of Europe. Outstanding job prospects coupled with a high quality of life and an international zest means that Germany offers the ideal mix for a successful, fulfilling career.
People skilled in business administration and IT (such as software engineers and product developers) are most in demand across the country. The southern German states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg are particularly attractive for job seekers in IT and engineering. Large corporations such as BMW, Daimler and Siemens are always on the lookout for talent and are willing to lure workers with attractive compensation and benefits packages. This means that Southern Germany is strongly represented in Jobspotting’s job offerings, with many vacancies available in their respective capitals of Stuttgart and Munich. If you go west, to North Rhine-Westphalia, cities like Cologne or Dusseldorf could be interesting potential targets in your job search. The cities on the Rhine are crying out particularly for experienced staff in Business Administration, Project Management and Software Development.
For more creative types, cities like Hamburg and Berlin should be on your radar, with a growing cohort of young, growing companies having set up shop. Berlin startups in particular are always looking for creative minds in the fields of marketing, communications and product development. It’s also a great city to check out if you’re looking for junior or internship positions to get your foot on the ladder.
