"Make it in Germany" is the German government's multilingual portal for skilled workers from abroad. It is commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and created by the Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft in cooperation with IW Medien GmbH. With the help of the website, the German government is attracting international skilled workers to Germany and counteracting the demographically induced shortage of skilled workers.

"Make it in Germany" is therefore primarily aimed at skilled workers from abroad who are interested in immigration. On the website, they will find useful information and tools, such as visa charts and the job exchange, so that visa issuance, entry and job search are successful, as well as family reunification and settling in Germany. 

In addition, the website offers information for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that is important for recruiting international professionals. In testimonials, international professionals and SMEs report on their experiences. Furthermore, the "Make it in Germany" team regularly offers webinars with interactive chat on corresponding user-relevant topics.
