Seeking for Jobs in Germany

As a recent IT PhD graduate from Portugal, is it possible to relocate to Germany to seek for job opportunities? I mean, is it possible to move to Germany in search of job without a prior job offer as a European passport holder?

Look at the official German website in English about job seeker visas:

Since you are European. Yes. If you're outside Europe, or will be soon outside Europe, then. No.

It also depends what you intend to do. If you prefer to do adminstration in an airconned room then there are a oversupply. If you choose the route of less cozyness then there will always be work  - see example below that still improves even when economies are globally slowing down :

I think a society gets cozy over time and gets jealous when they see foreigners earning good money (and forget that it's usually not the most comfy jobs that these people do). Closing the borders pulls double rugs out under the feet of a country. The first rug is that the unpopular jobs are not done anymore, the second rug is that it ripples exponentially to higher services.  (was it Douglas Adams that wrote the story about the elitist civilization that only send spaceships with academics, left the janitors at home only to discover that the spaceship never arrived because of the accumulated dirt. Can't remember...

Thank you so much JohannesM.

I am inside EU, in fact the last time I was outside EU was 2014...and that was when I went for a conference at the University of Victoria in Canada. I will love to move to Germany and start with a job I can do to earn a decent living. I am not particularly after corzy jobs.

Again, thank you so much for the information.
