Dreams won't get you here. If you have education and job experience in a demanded field and preferably speak fluent German then you might be able to line up a job online with an employee willing to take the extra effort,risk and cost to recruit one from outside of the EU. It's all about what you have to offer and what is in demand.

I removed your two other posts, which had only one word each.
Could you explain in a few sentences what (or who) you mean?
Or how about a short introduction of yourself?
Hello All, 

Thought I'd sign up and say Hello as someone who has plans of moving to Germany in the next 1-1.5 years.

Here's where I'm currently at: British Citizen, currently a Canadian PR (Living in Vancouver) and applying for Canadian Citizenship, which is due to come through some time in the next 10 months. Education-Wise, I have a college diploma in Computer Studies and Information Systems (2018), alongside 12 years work experience in the IT Industry, in various support and deployment roles (some with large international companies), and more recently some consulting and software implementation experience in the government and municipality sector. Language-wise, fluent English, and minimal German gained through 2 years of high school education, and more recently Duolingo. I know the sounds and certain phrases, but can by no means converse in German (yet!)

Here's where I want to go: Likely Berlin, as I know a couple of people there, but will also consider other big cities in Germany. 

What's my plan: To get my CDN citizenship, then move to Germany sometime late 2023. In the meantime, I'm planning on signing up to German school in the next week or so to start my German A1 learning, which will be two one hour lessons per week. By the time next fall comes around, I'm hoping to be at level A2, or maybe even B1 if I can excel in my learning. With this, I am planing on moving to Germany and attending German school (I have read that I can get a special visa for this) for 6-12 months, which will hopefully get me to German B2. Then I am planning either:

- Look for work in my current field of software consulting and implementation, or support if really necessary. My research shows that as a CDN citizen, I can stay in Germany to look for work without a JSV. If I am unsuccessful, then hopefully I'll be fluent enough in German to attend University and gain a bachelor degree of some kind, or do vocational training (unsure of the age restrictions on these two), which will give me time to further learn German, and put me in a better position as a prospective employee. I'll hopefully have enough money to support

Why: Many Reasons, some being: As beautiful as my current surroundings are, I miss the bustle of a bigger city (originally from London) // It is a life goal to learn and be able to converse in a second language, and to do that, I need immersion. // I miss European people. // Life is adventure, and I'm ready for my next one.

Im also bringing along a good attitude, and drive to succeed, which doesn't offer guarantees of anything, but will definitely help during the setbacks I'll most likely encounter.

Any inputs, feedback, or considerations I should make at this point would be most welcomed. 

Bye For Now.

The housing link doesnt have a lot of listings. Can anyone recommend best sites to look for houses on rent please? 
The best rental housing search sites for German cities are

    - Ebay Kleinanzeigen
    - WG-gesucht (for shared apartments)
    - Immoscout24 (for property agent's listings)

@beppi thank you. They all are in German :P. My german needs a lot of work still. But anyway i will try. 

They all are in German tongue.png.

Yes, of course - what did you expect, in a German-speaking country?

If you don't speak the language, bring a German friend along for viewings - there are certain things to talk about (negotiate) and a lot of mistakes can be made when renting (rental contracts are always in German - and buerocratic German to boot!)

Or you engage an English-speaking property agent to search for you - they charge 2.4 months rent for their service.
