"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."

#1 is the easiest: "Things will be different." Very different.
Now that we've got that out of the way, let's see how you can learn about nine more German job interview basics. What should you expect as an American who is looking for employment with a German company in Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart or Hamburg, for example?
Americans in Germany (and Germans in the U.S., of course) commonly experience a "culture shock" when entering the foreign work environment for the first time.
Newcomers are often humbled by their own lack of actual knowledge about the other country's (workplace) culture. Those are important lessons to learn. Don't waste the opportunity with "better" or "worse" comparisons. Think "different."
To help you prepare for a successful outcome, we have prepared a quiz for you on the Germany-USA Career Center website. It highlights some common situations American applicants face in their job interviews with German companies, Job Interview Basics for Americans in Germany on the Germany-USA Career Center website.
Our experts can help you find a new position fast - and save on your search costs.
The Germany-USA Career Adviser service is the ONLY service of its kind in Germany and in the U.S. We also cover Austria and Switzerland. Wir sprechen Deutsch!
"My Career Adviser gave me a TON of great advice today. I honestly canít wait to start using it (Iím still at work :-). I plan to re-do my cover letter and CV based on his advice.
I definitely would recommend your services because I was given more helpful information in one hour than in a week of personal web searching.
