Germany ranks #10 in the world for people that speak English as a second language. Though Germany’ primary language is German, you can hold a conversation in English with almost anyone.
Although in Germany 56% of the population speaks english you will be able to get courses of German for free in most public universities and other entities that help immigrants incorporate better into German society. But as a head start English language will help you be understood and integrate better for the beginning of your journey.
English language skills will help you understand your colleagues and your employer better in your new workplace. There are fewer opportunities for non-English speakers.
Often, many people are afraid to speak their mind in an unfamiliar language in this case English, even when they know the language pretty well.
If you want to increase your opportunities, don’t be scared to speak up. Everyone makes mistakes. The only thing that matters in communication is that the other person understands you. A high English level is not relevant to be understood. If you have questions regarding your English language level or would like some ideas on how to improve your skills, don’t hesitate to speak to Robins’ job experts.
Are you eager to earn as much money as possible during your stay in Germany? The key to that is trying to get more responsibility at work and to get extra hours.
Germans like to encourage their employees to show initiative to learn new things or be ready to work overtime. If you find yourself not busy during working hours, start organizing your workspace. Put that extra effort, finish your tasks earlier than you supposed to, arrive slightly earlier to your shift, punctuality is not only expected from workers and is also very incorporated in their society. These are all signals for German managers that show the right motivation. When the manager notices you are eager to do more, you will get more responsibilities and, eventually, a higher salary. You will be the first one to work overtime.
When you travel to work in Germany for the first time, we advise you to go together with a friend or spouse. Emotionally, it’s easier to get through the experience of moving to another country together. Though for agencies, it is harder to find work for friends or couples. There are still opportunities Robin can offer for those who like to go together, mostly if they both speak English.
Another significant benefit of going with someone else is that most of the rooms provided by the agency in Germany are shared with someone else. It’s always a question who that other person will be if you travel alone to work in Germany. Together, agencies can offer a room for both of you in almost all cases.
Germany has a temperate climate throughout the country with warm summers and cold winters, however long periods of frost or snow are rare. Rain falls throughout the year. Extremes temperatures sometimes reach -10° C (5°F) in winter and 35 ° C (95° F) in summer months.
Cycling is one of the most common ways of transportation in Germany. 80% of germans commute to work on their bicycles. Chances are very high that you will be travelling to work and back by bicycle when you move to work in Germany. Get ready to use the bike for your daily commute, and eventually, you will start enjoying it.
Germany has the world’s best infrastructure for driving bicycles with flat landscapes and towns that are well connected with paved bicycle roads.
At most employment agencies, a bicycle will be provided when the distance from work to your accommodation is less than 10 km’s from each other. A significant benefit of cycling is that it’s cheap and good for your health. One of the biggest enemies of a cyclist is rain, and it will rain in Germany! Soon you will be skilled in cycling with an umbrella or cycling with your raingear 🙂
Your future employer in Germany is keen on seeing what kind of jobs you were doing before. This is why many agencies in Germany require job seekers a CV to see what type of job experience you have. Even summer jobs or jobs you did some years in the past might help you get a better-paid job.
At Robin, we are not pushing too hard on CVs as we believe that a CV doesn’t tell much about the person behind the applicant. Still, most employers don’t share that philosophy.
If you have trouble writing a CV, Robins’ job experts will help you write one, and, just like all our services towards jobseekers, completely free of charge!
One of the most important reasons why most people want to change their life and go to work abroad is the stable working place that guarantees stable income. Strong economic situation in Germany will provide the security to know that there will be jobs available for immigrants and locals, much higher chances of having economic stability than in their own countries.
According to the data of 2019 Germany is the fourth best country for living. The research showed that 96 percent of German population are educated people who not only perform good at work and pay taxes, but also create a sustainable and promising future for all immigrant employees.
Robin offers the possibility to get work in Germany and experience how local companies are working and what kind of attractive working conditions they are offering for the employees from other countries.
The big lack of local workforce in Germany opened the doors for the employees from other countries. The employees from all around the world are working in German companies which creates a friendly and open environment for all the immigrants. Therefore you shouldn’t be surprised to have a colleague from Poland, Turkey or Egypt. This intercultural atmosphere promotes tolerance, helps to improve your communication skills and knowledge of foreign languages.
The employees from other countries often choose Germany for financial stability and happiness of local people. Germans are so used to the diversity of people that they don’t make a difference between the nationalities, races or sexual orientation. German government helps the immigrants to integrate and become part of the society easier and faster.
Knowing that the country’s population is growing very fast the priority is the safety of people. Germany is among 15 safest countries in the world.
The unemployment rate in Germany is only 3,1 % and is one of the lowest in Europe. It means that the local labor market is not overcrowded and there are a lot of employment possibilities for foreigners. Besides that, the low unemployment rate often means that the employers are motivated to keep their employees working by providing them with good working conditions. On some occasions the employer offers free or very cheap lunch in the cantine, compensates the traveling costs, gives longer holidays or pays double salary for work during bank holidays. If needed and for the growth of the company and employees, it’s a possibility to get provided with training courses, learning of local language and there have been cases where the company finances. In the end, properly trained and well knowledgeable employees are an asset to any team.
So if you are motivated and hardworking you can start your career path in Germany from an unqualified job. It will not take long until your employer will notice your wish to achieve more and will offer you the possibility to improve your professional skills and eventually to earn more.
It’s common to think that countries with strong economies are expensive. But the prices in Germany are very similar to the ones that you can see in your country’s shops.
Let’s calculate: in case you are getting a minimum salary in your country there is little money left after you pay for the utilities, local transport and the rent or the loan of the apartment. Besides these costs you need to pay for the mobile phone operator and buy food. Most likely there is nothing or very little left for entertainment. If you need to buy clothes, shoes or anything else then you need to save.
In Germany the lowest salary that you will receive after you pay taxes is 1450 euros. To rent an apartment for two would cost around 500 euros. Most of the employees are traveling to work by bicycle which you could buy for 50 euros. In case you would be traveling to work by bus the monthly ticket might cost around 80 euros (in Berlin for example). So when working and living in Germany you could have around 1000 euros left for your own needs and you will not need to think about how to survive until the end of the month.
The prices of food, household goods or beauty aids are the same or sometimes even lower than in Lithuania. The employees who like to save will soon discover cheap grocery stores and will have a possibility to save even more.
People often think that in order to travel and have an interesting free time you need a lot of money. Germans are not the ones who like to declare their richness, for them the quality of life is much more important. Rich and interesting free time in Germany will not cost you a lot!
There are many forests, parks and resting zones in Germany. There are 2500 parks only around Berlin! It’s possible to sport, play various games or simply rest there. In Northern Germany you can discover beautiful beaches. The hiking activities in Southwest Germany are one of the most popular in Europe. You can enjoy Alpes while hiking, skiing or just escaping the city. Even if you don’t have your own transport, it will not be difficult to travel around the country by train or bus.
German cultural life is very rich. There is a possibility to choose from many concerts, performances or art exhibitions. As the offer is so big often the entrance doesn’t cost anything or very little. Everybody will find something interesting. Often famous artists are playing or big sport events are taking place in big German cities. So there is a possibility to see something that you wouldn’t be able to see in your home country.
