I'm an Aussie currently living in London for the past 2 years who is thinking of having a break from that city and trying somewhere else in Europe. I don't want to try and make another Munich vs London comparison thread as I've read plenty of those on these forums already. I was just wanting to get an idea of how realistic this is given that I will probably only speak fairly basic German by the time I get over there.
In particular how difficult would it be to get a job in the IT industry, I've got about 4.5 yrs experience total with a mix of programming, sysadmin and technical support. I had the impression that most large companies and IT-specific companies (eg. software companies) would operate in English? If this is so is lack of German-fluency likely to be a show-stopper when looking for work? Does anyone here have any experience with being in this situation and looking for IT-related work?
(I'm a UK and therefore EU citizen so don't have to worry about visas/sponsorship etc.)
