  1. Hello,   Recently I started working in Germany, but the company wasn't the best fit. The decision to part ways at the end of my Probezeit was mutual, and I received my Arbeitzeugnis a couple months later. After careful review, it seems like this Zeugnis doesn't contain anything egregious, but it surely is the bare minimum. I haven't landed a new job yet, and I feel like ever since I started including it in my application, I haven't been getting interviews.   Is this cause for concern? Should I ask the company to have it revised? If yes, should I provide the language I want included, or will they know what to add? I'm kinda bummed, because when I left my job there was no concern regarding my work and the quality of it. My boss seemed to have it out for me regarding my personality though, but we seemingly came to an agreement that things didn't just mesh perfectly in terms of company culture and my own personality.

  3. Hello everyone!   I lost my my job recently and unfortunately I didn't separate amicably with my employer. I might have to sue him for money which he refuses to pay. At the moment I am looking for a job and I have to ask him for some kind of recommendation. I understand that in Germany there is Arbeitszeugnis (einfach and qualifiziert) and Arbeitsbestätigung which I can combine with letter of recommendation. I read in some forums that the Arbeitszeugnis is a bit outdated and also complicated to write. I am also afraid that my ex-employer may write something bad or refuse at all to give me a recommendation. Can you please advise me which type of document to ask for. Thank you!
