Hello all.

I am Tamer from Egypt working as digital marketing specialist at AGROMAX company.

This is a new challenge for me to marketing to other countries, I am working on this project now to export the company's products ( fresh and frozen Fruits and Vegetables).

I am looking to travel to Germany to meet clients face to face in near future, but now I am looking to a partner work with a commission for each deal.

Kindly share your ideas about this reply.

Hello Stephen,

How are you finding Berlin so far?

Hi there. I've been living in Berlin now for 3 years. Started my self employed business of me when I got here. Until recently I've not had much dealing with the hmrc back in the uk as I've had the German system to get used to.  Dual taxation and how to register for it and set the whole thing up is my next project.

i feel I am at the bottom of a very steep hill with many paths. Hopefully I can navigate it without too much damage along the way.




I'm Debrah. I just moved to Hungary but want to live in Germany. How do I get an English speaking job in Germany?

Thank you

@Debrah Light Unless you are in a specific niche with a lack of suitable personnel among German speakers (e.g. in IT and some other High-Teck areas), it is highly unlikely that you find an English-speaking job in Germany.

After all, we speak German here!

Hi Debrah,

Just Googling "English speaking jobs Germany" could be useful.

If you're looking for a job teaching English, there are many ways you can go about it (I didn't speak a word of German before I moved here and have been living here for more than 4 years now, teaching English as a freelancer).

But, speaking from personal experience, it would greatly benefit you if you learn some German before you come as I've come across a lot of Germans who have no time for people here who don't speak German.

Hello all,

I have moved to Germany in February 2023.

I am a DevOps/Cloud Engineer who is on a Job Seeker Visa as of now and goals to convert it into a EU Blue Card. I have a 5 years of experience in my profession. Since I have just moved I am also looking for a house and its a real headache I swear.

Apart from this, I love dance, socialising and partying. I am fluent with English, Hindi and Gujarati and I know some basic level of German.

Also, I love trekking, travelling and pets, so if you hit any of the zone lets catch up for some food!


Any leads or help with the job/house would be really great.

Feel free to send me a Hi for casual meet and greet!

I guess thats too much for now so, Shaadap-ing up 1f602.svg

Your Truly,


The whole point of a job seeker visa is that one is allowed to start working right away. The work visa is de facto pre-approved. To qualify for the blue card is another matter; but not sure why it would be a problem since one is already allowed to work. But it only strengthens my observation that a JSV is rarely the optimal way to find a job. One can better do it online these days without the added cost and effort.

But a couple of things. One might find a decent job but it might not meet the requirement to get a blue card, which isn't a necessity anyway. Seems everyone from India has an obsession about a blue card.

And I don't know how it fits for one to rent a place long term until they know where and if they have a job. In Germany cities the vast majority of people live in apartments not houses. Few are available in an already tight housing market and most would be very costly.

We invite you to read the forum code of conduct

@rupchandbaroli123 Julien is the internationalsite owner and lives in Mauritius. He cannot help you with jobs in Germany - and neither can I: You have to apply at suitable employers yourself and convince the that you are the right person to hire!

(Hint: The most important aspect are you language skills. How good is your German?)

@kateann040995 Please do not post personal contact details on the open forum - it can be abused and is thus forbidden by the forum rules.

Your post does not specify your skills and experience. In case you have the right ones, you have good job chances - of course provided you speak German well.

In case you don't speak German, you are automatically excluded from all roles that involve dealing with customers, partners, suppliers or other team members. This would limit your job chances to very few small niches - outside of management.

@Julien Hi. Mark here, I've lived in Germany for a little over 12 months, it's been a mixed bag of experiences, some good, some not so good, but I'm not giving up on my integration in to the culture. 1f600.svg
