Job prospects

Germany has a shortage of skilled professionals in STEM and health-related occupations and an ageing population. Both factors increase the chances for young and skilled international university graduates to find suitable employment in Germany, start and continue their careers here.

The occupations that are mostly affected by skills' shortages include graduate positions in the field of supply and waste management, IT and software development/programming, STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), mechanical and automotive engineering, electrical engineering and medicine.

Graduates from other disciplines and STEM graduates can always increase their career prospects by:

  • Having a good command of the German language. We recommend that you enrol in German classes during your studies. Try to speak as much German as possible, e.g. with class or flatmates.
  • Knowing the German labour market. Learn how a German CV and cover letter need to look like and what German employers are looking for. Things might work differently than in your home country.
  • Getting professional experience through internships and student jobs. Graduates with more work experience enjoy better job opportunities. This way you can also expand your professional network.
