You have come to Germany and would like to work here. Whether this is possible depends on your current residency status. The Federal Employment Agency will help you to find employment. Or perhaps for the time being the focus is on doing vocational training. We are happy to advise you in person. In this way you will find out how and where you can work.

If you have not yet received assistance from an employment agency or jobcentre, you should register with us.

We need some personal details as well as information on what you can do (your qualifications and career experience). Once you have entered your data, this will be forwarded to the relevant employment agency.

The best way to do this is by completing this short CV and bringing it with you to your appointment at the employment agency.
