Jobs in Germany

Germany offers a good work-life balance with an average employee working for nearly 1,371 hours per year, or an estimated 26.3 hours per week – lowest in the world. It is yet among the world’s top 10 productive countries.

It boasts a graduate unemployment rate of 2.3 percent – lowest in Europe. Out of 350,000 international students, 69.2 percent choose to stay and work in Germany after completing their studies. Only 16.5 percent immediately return home after their studies are completed.

Working in Germany after studying in Germany

If you have a German university degree, it will be much easier for you to obtain a residence permit with the right to engage in the German employment market.

After finishing your studies in Germany, you can apply for a residence permit which will be valid for up to 18 months for the purpose of finding a job. In order to be eligible, you have to produce proof that you can cover your living costs and you are sincere about seeking employment corresponding to your level of academic qualification.

While seeking a permanent position, you are permitted to work part-time for as many hours per week as you want. If you are successful in finding a job within the stipulated time, you can continue to stay in Germany.

Your new position must be related to your university degree. Also, you should not be overqualified for the position. For instance, a Medicine graduate is not right for the job of a software engineer. Similarly, a graduate who studied Pharmacy is overqualified to take a job of waiting tables at a restaurant.
