How easy is to get an IT job for experienced professional in germany on Job seekers visa?

This depends entirely on your area of specialisation and your German language skills.

Hello Libin,

just a quick question, i am from India and currently planning to learn German. My wife is studying German (A1 level). I have about 10 years of experience in SAP WMS.
We both plan to finish till, at the least, B1 level before applying for German jobs from India. Is there anything you can help or advise. Do we apply visa on our own (work visa) from India.

Any tips would be helpful

I think you should check the oversees position posting by German Department of Labor in particular the (BIZ) Berüfsinformationszentrum, to get an offer from an empöoyer then if you get a contract you can start your visa application

Hi. Greetings to all :)

I am also up to some tips of getting a job in Germany. I am a licensed accountant and currently working here in UAE. My husband (a German) and I are both based here in UAE and it happened that he wanted to go back to Germany for good. The thing is I still wanted to work and practice my profession in the place.

Any advice from you guys?

Many thanks in advance and have a nice day :)

First, you should check if your accountancy degree or credentials are recognized in Germany. You can consult the ANABIN database for this.
Then, you should seriously consider learning German. Your job chances are MUCH better with some reasonable language skills (A2 level and above), because without you'd be ineligible for all customer-facing or otherwise communicating roles, which includes most jobs on the market.
After that you can start your job search by identifying and contacting suitable companies in your field of work.
Good luck!
