Company

The Germany-USA Career Center comprises a dedicated team of international HR, recruitment and client services experts.

Launched initially as a permission-based email list for decision makers in business between the U.S. and Germany, we have since assisted thousands of employers and employment seekers in our niche every year.

Founder Gerd Meissner started the Germany-USA Career Center in 1997, to meet the demand of many American and German companies and bi-lingual job seekers in both countries.

Our mission: to serve businesses and individuals both in the U.S. and in Germany / Western Europe who needed more adequate, specialized management / executive search and career services in our market than could be provided by "general" job boards or international trade organizations.

Gerd has served as a member of the leadership team of several trade associations, as a Board Director of the Chamber of Commerce, and on community service organizations. He is also a Past-President of the University Rotary Club of Palo Alto, CA (Stanford) and a Past-President of the Falmouth Rotary Club (Cape Cod, MA).

Gerd immigrated to the U.S. from Germany as a business writer and publisher. His byline has appeared in the New York Times, among many other renowned national and international publications. He is also the author of several books, including the critically acclaimed "SAP - Inside the Secret Software Power" (McGraw-Hill Publishers) about the German software powerhouse SAP.

My GUCC Experience

"Great insights to how the job outlook and system works in Germany. I appreciate [my Career Adviser's] help in understanding a once mysterious system over there.

[On a scale of 1-10] I would give it a 10, because of the patience that was shown toward me when I was confused, and the thoroughness of explanation.

On top of that, they did such quality work on my CV and cover letter. The service given can give you a "leg-up" in your career search."

"Very helpful in terms of CV and cover letter improvement as well as getting new insights and support regarding my job search.

Very helpful especially for foreigners who have to adopt to American formal standards; it's important to know which networks are useful and what job search platforms can be used."
