A phone call with a Recruiter.

I still suck at writing blog post titles. Sigh. Well, as mentioned in the title, I had an interesting experience talking to a recruiter on the phone today and I thought I’d write about it here. It’s completely okay not to know everything. This recruiter, let’s just call him Andy, approached me on LinkedIn yesterday with a job offer at ‘a leading American tech company … Continue reading A phone call with a Recruiter.

Ausländer on job search in Germany.

September is here and it marks the one month I have been actively applying for jobs here in Germany. The reason why I didn’t do it sooner was because 1) I haven’t received my EU resident permit yet until some days ago, 2) We were moving around since last year and only, finally, settling in Berlin early this month. When I first moved to Germany, … Continue reading Ausländer on job search in Germany.

The city is probably most well-known for hosting the annual computer and IT trade fair, … Continue reading Day Trip: Hanover

Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P. Junior, Hermeskeil

Now that it seems clear that we’re going to settle in Germany for at least the next one year, I’ve decided to add another category called Life in Germany to document or share my experience living here as a non EU-citizen. After some encounters with fellow ‘aliens’ (‘Aliens Office’ or Ausländeramt is responsible for your Residence Permit application), I thought that it would be interesting … Continue reading Day trip: Idar-Oberstein & Flugaustellung P.
