How can I find a new job in Germany?

Need to find a job where German is not a requirement?  Need a proper visa or work permit?  Not sure where to look for postings or how to adapt your CV to the local market?  Not getting any feedback on your job applications? Expath can help!

I took the "How to find a job" workshop and found it incredibly helpful. Our instructor, Tia, was incredibly helpful in answering our questions, correcting our CVs, and helping us prepare in what to expect when applying for positions and which positions to apply for. I would recommend to anyone seeking employment in Berlin.
