Working in Germany

Figuring out your career path in Germany can be challenging. What do you want to do? What can you do? How flexible is your path, and what effect do your choices today have on your future career in Germany? (Hint – it might have a larger impact that you think). German employers have specific expectations that may differ from those you are familiar with, and the pressure to find a great job and write the perfect application can feel overwhelming – it feels like everything depends on getting that job offer.

Since 2008, I’ve been working with international students, professionals, and expats, and am enthusiastic about helping you find your way to a career that really fits. I’ve designed this site as a platform to share the resources and services I’ve put together for international students, relocated professionals, and expats who want to stay (and be successful!) in Germany. I offer career coaching, application coaching, online classes, and help navigating the job market – you can find more information below!


I’ve started a newsletter to answer your questions about working in Germany, careers, and being successful as an international in Germany. You’ll also get updates on upcoming web sessions, online courses, and events!

Application Coaching

Am I doing this right? In group coaching sessions (in-person or online), we’ll go over your application(resume, cover letter, and documents) and I’ll provide you with feedback and talk through any questions you might have about the process.

Online Courses

Learn about applying for jobs in Germany in live hands-on workshop sessions or in my self-guided online courses – a series of short videos with interactive workbook activities that will guide you through the application process.

Career Coaching

Where do you want to go? What paths are open to you in Germany? In a one-on-one session (in-person or online), explore your career questions and discover a career path that lets you flourish in Germany and build a plan to success!
