  1. job offer

    Hi ppl, I am under several process to get a new job and I have one offer in hand. I am in a process with a big company that takes forever to finish the process due to summer vacation etc. Still discussing the last points in the previous process, what would be best to do? Can I ask a time to think about if and how long companies hold an offer? The first company is really interested in my profile. Just trying a chance with this other dream company.  In any case, I want to quit my current job. 
  2. leaving job with holidays

    Hey, is there any difference between leaving the work in the first part of the year or the second part of the year regarding the vacation? Not sure if it matters where is before end of June or 1st of July? Does this really matters?
  3. First, I apologize if i post this topic in the wrong place. I went to interview last month and filled up forms. The personnel officers said, they can immediately give me placements after I submit "Straffreiheitsbescheinigung" She said, as I am only living in DE less then 5 years, the company need this letter. What is it?   To be exact, this is their written request Nur Bei Wohnsitzen im Ausland innerhalb der letzten 5 Jahre:Eine Bescheinigung (straffreiheitsbescheinigung) in beglaubigter Kopie oder im Original des jeweiligen Landes (Polizeibehörde), aus der hervorgeht, dass keine Verurtheilungen/Strafverfahren anhängig waren bzw. sind; die Bescheinigung ist in englischer Sprache oder mit einer beglaubigten übersetzung in deutscher Sprache vorzulegen.   I assume its certificate of good manner, Führungszeugnis. Is it? What confused me was, the lady from the company told me, I may have to asked it from my Consulate office (Hee??) I did call the Consulate and the reply confused me even more. In order to get my last 5 years (no) crime record I have to go to back to my country, because only District Police can process it and I have to do finger prints scan to exhaust the report. The lady from consular office said, technically I dont have to be there, just my finger. And then she also advice me if I just get my last 3 years (no) crime record in Germany instead so I can just go and get the whole record within the Germany. For this idea I need to check to the company if its ok for them. Another friend of mine said, if it is "Führungszeugnis" (as she was not sure, relate the confusedness of the company suggest me to go to my consulate), My friend said I can just go on-line, fill in a form and paid. Wait for some days and it will be deliver to me. Anyone knows about this?  
  4. Hi all, I've got Business/Communication degree but I'm thinking about a career change in a healthcare-related field. My other option is becoming a college prof but I'm disillusioned with Business and things like that. I'm not sure a German university OK, so let me get this straight. As far as I understand, one needs German to really make it in Germany.  Sure, many English natives could get by on doing EN-only businesses or teaching English (or working in/around the US Army), but I am not a native speaker so that's out. I don't want to do a menial job as it won't leave me enough time to learn the language with 10-12 hr shifts, weird hours, employee abuse and stuff.   I would like to train for a degree in healthcare (as a physical therapist, dietician, osteopath, or dental technologist) but all the Ausbildung/study offers require good German and mine's like A1 (My English is about B2/C1 and French B1). What would you do in my case? Get a job like washing dishes or rather get a degree somewhere else where the language is easier or offers education in EN (like Pilsen, Czech Republic)?   I'm not a Czech speaker but it's easier for me than German being Bulgarian. Also we share many common or similar words for body parts and bones etc. which would be helpful for a healthcare-related degree. Do Czech degrees even qualify for working in Germany though? I've heard nurses for ex. need to get a German re-training one on top of their original foreign one. Is it the same for dental techs/dieticians/nutritionists/osteopaths/physical therapists?   Also, in your opinion, what degree could give me a better salary/more demand? I've heard dental technicians make quite good money. Are Germans big on Osteopathy and Homeopathy like the French (worked in French health insurance)? What about the demand/pay of physical therapist, dieticians & nutritionists? Then again, all those require quite good German, while dental technicians only talk to doctors and work in lab, so no direct communication with clients directly usually. Of course maybe I could just do a PhD in a German uni but very few interesting options exist in English (things like Business Management or Cultural Studies which I don't think are viable). I would also like to have a job which I can practice in a smaller city like Fuerth, Amberg, etc. I'm also open to commuting to larger communities like Nuremberg or Regensburg. would accept me in some more interesting scholar field without a prior degree in it (History, etc.). Not sure if an academic career is stable at all in Deutschland. As far as I understand one needs German to really make it in Germany. Many English natives get by on doing EN-only businesses targeting expats or teaching English (or working in/around the US Army), but I am not a native speaker and I prefer cities smaller than 500k so that's out. I don't want to do a menial job as it won't leave me enough time to learn the language with 10-12 hr shifts, nor any time to get a degree with their weird hours, employee abuse and stuff. I could do a part-time option if I study so 20 hrs per week.   I would like to train for a degree in healthcare (as a physical therapist, dietician, osteopath, or dental technologist) but all the Ausbildung/study offers require good German and mine's like A1. My English is about B2/C1 and French B1. What would you do in my case? Try Germany or get a degree somewhere else where the language is easier or offers education in EN (like Pilsen, Czech Republic)?   I'm not a Czech speaker but it's easier for me than German being Bulgarian. Do Czech degrees even qualify for working in Germany though? I've heard nurses for ex. need to get a German re-training one on top of their original foreign one. Is it the same for dental techs/dieticians/nutritionists/osteopaths/physical therapists?   Also, in your opinion, what degree could give me a better salary/more demand? I've heard dental technicians make quite good money. What about Osteopathy and Homeopathy? Physical therapists, clinical dieticians/nutritionists? Those require good German, while dental technicians only talk to doctors and work in lab, so no direct communication with clients directly usually.   Of course I could just do a PhD in a German uni but very few interesting options exist in English, that set you on the path to always work in a college/uni as they're not very viable outside of academia. I don't want to give money to get yet another useless degree like my foreign Business and Communication degrees! I only get 600 Euro in my country.  On the other hand were it not for call centres and so-called Business Process Outsourcing by multinationals, it would be hard for foreigners to find jobs in Greece, Portugal, all of ex-socialist Central and Eastern Europe. There doesn't seem to be such possibilities in Germany, even in the less wealthy ex-GDR places. Those jobs aren't that great but at least you could travel around Europe as an EU expat discovering different cultures. I'd prefer a job which I can practice in a smaller city like Fuerth, Amberg, etc. but I'm also open to commuting to larger communities like Nuremberg or Regensburg.
