Make it in Germany. Online Workshop.

The new online counselling service on working and living in Germany

The online portal is the first contact point for applicants from abroad who are interested in taking up work in Germany. Via this platform, the International and Specialized Services (ZAV) offer personal counselling via email, phone, text chat and video chat. Additionally, we provide counselling at international job fairs and information events. As of now, we have expanded our services to include an OnlineWorkshop. In two modules, “Working and living in Germany” and “A successful application”, we counsel students, graduates and skilled workers worldwide who are interested in working in Germany. Via live broadcast, the ZAV instructors will present the topics to the group event participants and will answer questions afterwards.

The OnlineWorkshops takes place every month on the second Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 AM (CET/MEZ).

Deadline for the registration is two days before the event! This means monday! All other applications will be registered for the event afterwards.
