Job Exchange (JOBBÖRSE)

Find your position on the internet

Do you already know in which profession you would like to work? Do you already possess a vocational qualification or experience in a certain field? Then you may search for appropriate positions in Germany’s major job portal, the JOBBÖRSE. You may also narrow down your search, for example according to

  • City or Federal State
  • Working hours (full- or part-time)
  • Nature of activity (for example, training or a job)

If you are a refugee or asylum seeker then you can use our simplified job search. Here you can find different job vacancies organised by federal state. You are also able to search for traineeship places. Even if you can speak only a little German, a traineeship is still possible. Use our special services.

Particular deadlines

If you are seeking asylum in Germany and your asylum procedure is still in progress, particular regulations apply. Generally speaking you may only work if the Foreign Nationals Office (Ausländerbehörde) has given its approval. This also applies if you possess a so-called Duldung (i.e. your residence is tolerated). Generally speaking, the waiting period during which you are not permitted to work is three months subsequent to your arrival. Should you have found work, please contact the Foreign Nationals Office.
