Which are the most English speaking cities in Germany? Maybe the question should be: Which city in Germany has more job opportunities for English speaking professionals? Germany experiences a long “jobwunder”. Unemployment is at the lowest level in 24 years. But few expatriates profit from this development.
Which city in Germany has more job opportunities for English speaking professionals?
The reason: Too few Expats speak German. Or too few German companies use English as their business language. Only 3.5 percent of all job offers in Germany are in English. In other words: 96.5 percent of the jobmarket is “off limits” for you if you are limited to English speaking jobs in Germany.
Even worse if you are not able to move within Germany. If you are a “trailing spouse” it makes seldom sense to take a job in another city. You might live in the most Englsih speaking city in Germany, but that doesn’t help if the total number of English jobs in Gemany is so limited.
Here are the “Top 10” German cities with English job offers
05. Duesseldorf (1.134 English job offers. Most English speaking city in Gemany)
04. Hamburg (1.532 English job offers)
03. Frankfurt am Main (2.100 English job offers)
02. Munich (3.035 English job offers)
01. Berlin (3.920 English job offers. Best city in Germany for IT jobs)
Tip: There are 1.785 other cities with companies that work in English. In total there are roughly 35.000 English jobs in Germany. The lesson for you: “Which city in Germany has more job opportunities?” might not be the right question to ask. A more useful question is: “How do I convince a German employer to hire me in English and allow me to learn German on the job?”
If you get only rejections to your job applications: The reason might be that you apply only to English jobs with immense competition or to German jobs without building trust first. Read “How To Win Jobs & Influence Germans” to fix your jobhunt. Get job interviews!
