  1. Greetings! I'm an educated/qualified US citizen who would like to apply for jobs in Germany. While I believe I've researched all of the rules, the information I'm seeing from potential employers makes me question the feasibility of actually getting a contract as a non-EU national.   If my facts are correct (obtained here), any non-EU national who holds a comparable degree (per Anabin) qualifies for an EU blue card if they're offered a contract with a salary over €52000 (for 2018). Under these conditions, no hiring priority must be given to an EU-national. Effectively, any degree educated foreigner can be hired if they meet the salary threshold, with no additional burden on the employer save waiting for the blue card to be issued. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.   What makes me skeptical are job listings that explicitly state they won't offer visa sponsorship, even though the job a.) already requires a qualifying degree and b.) commands an average salary that exceeds the blue card threshold. Therefore, anyone they would consider hiring could feasibly obtain a blue card. Is this only meant to discourage those who wouldn't qualify anyway?   There are many possible explanations, but I'm asking here to ensure this isn't an indication of some rule or custom I'm unaware of. It could be that these employers intend to offer a below average salary. It could also be that they just put this on every listing as a disclaimer, and it's not addressed to blue-card qualifying applicants.   I'm more concerned this is an indication that the hiring custom in Germany is to continue prioritizing EU-nationals even in cases where there is no legal burden or requirement to do so. I am also suspicious that there could be some other liability for employers I'm unaware of, especially since the contract is required prior to the blue card's actual approval.   Does anyone here have any insight? It would be very much appreciated.

  3. I applied for a new job, however, my first name is ethnic and very religious (I am not religious) which I don‘t use and don‘t want to be called by at work. My middle name is easier to pronounce and it is the one I have used to apply for jobs in the US without any problems. I always use my full name in legal documents though.   I got an interview and told one of my friends about it but when they saw my CV, they said that in Germany you must use your full name, put your DoB and a picture. I haven‘t seen a law that says I must. If the employer asks how should I address this situation? I sent out an American style CV in which I didn‘t even include my date of birth or picture because that is not necessary in the US. I never really thought about it but now I wonder: how I should proceed in the interview? should I mention it first or wait until they ask for my legal documentation to sign a job contract?   My e-mail has my middle name as well and they didn‘t care that I didn‘t put a picture or my date of birth, I did, however, put my nationality which is dual: American and Colombian.   This job is as a teacher for a school.   Thank you all for the help!
  4. Job for 4-6 weeks in Berlin?

    Hey everyone,   I'm a student with a student residence permit. Now I'm in a desperate need of money so I'm looking for some job for the next 4-6 weeks. I speak excellent German and English but don't have any particular skills, neither do I have a driving license.    Is it possible to find anything only for some weeks? I can work full time.     Thanks!
