  1. I have been in Germany for 18 months on a work permit (not blue card). The situation at work has been getting tense due to COVID and I want to know what happens if I am fired or if I decided to take on another job (if at all possible). I am a non EU national, and here's the text on my Aufenhaltstitel:   Beschäftigung als [job title] bei [company] in  [city] gestattet (Par. 39 AufenthG, 4 BeschV). Die Zustimmung gilt nicht für eine Beschäftigung im Rahmen der Arbeitnehmerüberlassung. Weitere Erwerbstätigkeit nicht gestattet.   Can anyone offer advice on this? thanks!
  2.   Hey everyone,    Current Electrical Engineering student right now planning on moving to Germany in two years. I’m 32, and will finish my undergrad in 3 semesters.   My preparation for moving to Germany: I’ve been studying German part-time over the past five years in preparation for moving to Germany. My German level is at B1.2 right now. I started studying electrical engineering actually so I had skills to move to Germany with. I’ve been working customer service jobs from age 15-23, then in construction project coordination work from 23-27. Then started studying at 27 and had a lot of catching up to do it college with courses and material to start my engineering degree (that’s why it has taken so long) and during that time I worked as a tutor and completed three internships, one in medical device manufacturing field, one in electrical engineering, and completing another one right now in software engineering. The company I’m working with right now in my internship might offer me to stay working there during school semesters and to intern next summer as well, so that would give me another year or year and a half of experience by the time I graduate. I plan on working another 6 months after I graduate to save up the money to cover living costs when I move to Germany.    I know my situation is a bit odd:  I know I’m an older and nontraditional student with not-much engineering is experience yet, but I do have a lot experience with soft skills already and customer service which could be a plus in the future engineering field. Since discovering my love and passion for living in Germany at 26 years old, I set out to make this happen, it’s just a matter of how. I know a lot of you have made this big move for yourselves too, so I thought I’d reach out for some advice on anything else I should do to prepare myself for moving there, since it will be about two years from now.  Any Advice?: What are some recommendations anyone might have? Should I apply for masters programs and a Werkstudent position (or Duale Studium program)? Should I apply to do a computer science Bachelor in Germany if I can’t get into a masters program? Or should I just start applying to jobs a few months before I arrive in Germany and while I’m there?  Also: I’m also applying To the Steuben-Schurz-Gesellschaft USA-Interns program that could place me in an internship in Germany while I still have my student status here which could help me get experience with a German company.    Any advice would be greatly appreciated from experienced individuals like everyone here!    Thank you! 
  3. Hi All,    We have a discussion in the family whether or not my wife should pursue a local teaching position: background: - she finished an non-EU university with teaching spanish/english diploma - alternatively she is interested into working as "director of study" / methodological consultant/ whatever her stuff is there  (don't ask me, it's like Chinese for me). Are there such positions?  -   says that her Uni/qualification is recognized/ can be equated (has an H+ and  then for column "Senior year" it's an A5 mentioned there (can anyone explain what stands for?) - she is has  residency - so no visa hassle    My questions would be  - how likely is to find a job in Munchen in this area? (obviously they will see her as a non-native, would this be an impediment?)  - is possible to have TKT as an equivalent of a TESL ? - what German level is required  - what should be the salary expectations ?  - any other hints/observations are welcome    Thanks 
  4. Hello everyone I'm planning on moving to Germany before the end of this year. I speak fluently two languages and can speak in English casually. That said, I am really interested in working with animals like on a farm or some other type of facility (not as a vet or anything highly qualified of course). Do you think it is possible to find someone willing to employ me? Where should I look for a job offer like that? 
  5. Hello   I'm about to start a job, 51,000 a year. I'm single (not married), i'm athiest, i'm 27 years old.   I also have another invoice coming up around 60,000 euros. I do not understand too much German finance as I am originally from the UK.   If i'm in full-time employment (and all of my taxes, insurances and surcharges are covered by my job), how much would I be taxed on the 60,000 after my full-time employement salary of 51,000 a year? I will be full time employed but would I also need to announce that I am freelance here? Are they any smart moves like savings accounts or tax breaks that I should know about to save myself getting hugely taxed or is it simply, that I would have earned 111,000 in the 17-18 tax yer?   Thanks in advance for your help and advice!

  6. Age: 35 Nationality: British Residence status: EU citizen Time in Germany: 4.5 years German level: A2 Married to a German student, no children Job status: Just quit, leaving end of May Net worth: 200k, currently all liquid Occupation: Software engineer   So, I just quit the job, handed in my resignation and will leave end of May.   So a new chapter awaits. We will be moving to a new city in August, either in our state, or a different state, depending on if my wife is accepted to post-grad or starts teacher training.   Arbeitsamt I'll be heading to the Arbeitsamt in Tuesday to see what they have in store for me. Ideally, as I won't be receiving benefits for 3 months, they won't be pestering me to look for a new job immediately. What's the likelihood of this?   Renting an apartment Also, as we'll be renting a new apartment in August, I assume my unemployment will be a factor. Is the fact we have some money in the bank and never missed rent considered by landlords/rental agencies, or will it be a significant barrier?   Learning German Well I have no excuses here. Worked in an English speaking office, lived with my wife who studies English. And lazy as hell. Been studying more the past month and going to increase that considerably (been saying this for years). Actually considering going on an intensive course for 3 months if that is possible. Perhaps the Arbeitsamt will like that. Seems like a good opportunity to do that.   Job search Hopefully being a software engineer helps here. In demand profession and lack of German not always a barrier. Prefer to work remotely if possible as we won't be moving to a city with many tech jobs, plus I've worked on a distributed team for the past 18 months, so I have experience here. Creating XING and LinkedIn profiles today.   Residence status Brexit around the corner. I suspect I'll be applying for Permanent Residence. What if I don't have a job by then we but can support me and my wife financially? I hope to be B1 at least, plus I'm married to a German, so hopefully I won't be asked to leave regardless. I've not heard anything from my local Ausländeramt. I assumed I'd get a letter but perhaps I'll just have to visit them.   So any advice or information from people who have been through my situation, or can answer any of my questions would be greatly appreciated.
