Learn with self-study courses all you need to know about a job search in Germany and reduce your rejections. After each online course module, you will be able to prepare yourself for the respective job hunting topic and work out your own individual solution. The e-learning courses are a very inexpensive and time-flexible form of a career advice. You can start and pause the seminar videos as it fits into your working day or lecture plan. If you still have questions after a webinar, you can clarify them in a personal consultation.

The job application training aimed primarily at foreigners who have little knowledge of application rules in Germany. The examples in the seminars are optimized for engineers, natural scientists and economists. Nevertheless, the application principles I teach naturally apply to non-academic job seekers as well. Even if you want to work in an apprenticed profession, you will benefit greatly from this training.
If your German language skills are better than English use the webinars in German language:
What does a self-study course look like in practice?
Each seminar consists of videos in which I explain exactly what you need to know. The duration of each webinar is indicated individually in the detailed decription. You will also receive the presentation slides from the video for download and, depending on the seminar module, additional sample material or work handouts to help you with your personal implementation. All self-teaching modules (except the work permit) conclude with a learning test in which important information from the respective self-study unit is reviewed. If necessary, you can repeat the relevant video sequence using the time markers provided.
For details on the content of each seminar unit, click on the module title or icon above.
How soon can a self-study module be started?
Once you have paid, you will receive the link to your chosen module within a few minutes. After that you can start immediately.
How long can a self-study module be accessed?
After activation, you can access the webinar for one month. During this period, you can pause and repeat the videos as you wish. Please note: After your purchase you must activate the course within 48 h. The activation link is submittet via email a few minutes after your payment.
Are self-learning courses tax deductible?
The self-study webinars and individual consulations are tax deductible and part of the so called “Werbungskosten”. Please collect and keep all invoices and bills for your effords to find a job e.g. for flights, Visa, phone calls, relocation and this career advice as well. If you have finally found a job in Germany you should read more about tax declarations in Germany to get your investments back. You can also use the support of a tax assistance union (“Lohnsteuerhilfeverein”), which is much cheaper than a tax consultant.
