A quick yet small guide to starting over-

Time for your favorite questions
Is German a requirement for the job?
A big no! It is not at all required to get a job but as always it is required for daily conversation- at least B1 level. As per Mr. Yogesh, he had never seen a job description mentioning German proficiency as a must, only your skills and experience should match -that’s all.
At the same time, he advises learning German for your own sake. Because when you land in Germany you have to visit a restaurant and have to rent an apartment, so it is a must-have.
How much time will it take to get a job?
Mr. Yogesh went through the process for a whole six months.
From searching for various job applications and applying for them, facing rejections, and finally getting a job and visa. Whereas, his friend landed the job in just 2 months, so your hard work, consistency, and defined path matter.
When you have a planned path and strategy achieving the goal becomes easy. One must not forget that it is always difficult to start, but once achieved, it looks simple.
So don’t leave in between. You will get frustrated, but giving up and losing hope is not a good choice. Try hard until you achieve it. As said earlier, it is not like a hunt for the lion; it takes time, patience, and a strategy.
Python developers, managers, non-IT workers, and everyone out there is searching for a job in Germany. A defined and correct path helps to achieve the goal super soon.
Some guidance is what one craves. This blog covers almost every point on how to get a job in Germany that too within 6 months.
Anyone can follow the above-mentioned steps, not just python developers. Have a mindset of achieving first and keep patience, don’t get frustrated easily.
