Hello,

I have just move to Neckartenzlingen, Germany along with my wife and I am actively looking for a job within Customer Support.

I know that it is very difficult without a solid knowledge of the german language, but maybe somebody can point me in the right direction.

To be honest I'm looking for any english speaking job until I will improve my german skills. I'm also looking for german lessons teacher or may an institue, but not too expensive :D

Looking forward to hear from you.

Thanks

Do you already have an open work permit? If not, you'll only be able to receive a work permit for a skilled position.

Hi Sorins, Hope you get a job soon. Regarding learning Germany, I realised now how expensive it is here now. I have to pay Euro 4200 for eighty hours class and that is too much for me.Let me know if you get a cheap place to study Germany.

Hi Engelchen,

I don't have a work permit, but my wife has one. Does this not qualify me as eligible to work here?

I am also interested in part-time jobs or anything that will get me out of the house and help me learn german language faster...

In certain cases. What does it say on your permit?

I don't have one...my wife received a job offer in Stuttgart, so we decided to move here.

I think I need sponsorship in order to get a job,right?

Hi Mike,

I'm from Romania and I know that for us the work permit is still required.

I am looking for any kind of job to be honest...anything that will help me to integrate and learn german language.

I haven't found too many jobs just for english speaking and I am starting to think that I will not find ever.

You need to determine whether you have full access to the German labour market through due to your wife's status in Germany (if she is also Romanian, you probably don't). Go to your local ABH and apply for a Freizügigkeitsbescheinigung; it will also state under what conditions you are allowed to work in Germany.

I am looking for any kind of job to be honest...anything that will help me to integrate and learn german language.

If you need a work permit, there is no point in applying for unskilled positions. The best way to learn German is to enrol in the Integrationskurs (use the search function).

I haven't found too many jobs just for english speaking and I am starting to think that I will not find ever.

There is not much of a demand (relatively) for IT customer support in English. You need to either start learning German or expand your job search (the best would be to do both).

Work on your German - as soon as you can understand basic instructions, you can apply at one of the temp agencies (Manpower etc.) and should be able to get work then. Without German - pretty much impossible.

I have experiences looking for a job in Stuttgart as engineer, I would say that you really need to strengthen your German language skills because there are only few places for English Speaking Jobs. The chance to get a job in this area with lack of German language is rare. Especially, when you require also work-permit which needs to be applied through the company to Alien Office in Stuttgart.

However, the first step for you to look for a job is also searching for a position on job vacancy website such as monster.de, stepstone.de etc. or try manpower or adecco.
