The German economy is in need of well-trained specialists and graduates in many fields and regions. Germany offers excellent job opportunities for engineers, IT experts, physicians, natural scientists, technicians and there are a lot of jobs available in the medical sector, too. Having remained one of the strong engines in Europe, Germany has developed into a country with a vibrant labour market that has a huge demand for highly qualified labour. As statitics indicate, by 2019 Germany will suffer from a shortage of more than 80,000 engineer and medical doctor positions. The positions are fairly distributed throughout the country, mostly as junior positions.
For the past few years, Germany has been opening up tremendously for highly qualified labour from abroad. Most regulations have been adapted accordingly to ensure that those international university graduates seeking for career opportunities in Germany have a reliable path to follow. As such, Germany has started specially designed German language courses with the Goethe Institute, it has introduced a new “visa for job search” (§ 18c Ausländergesetz), and it has developed tools to better inform about the current developments.
