The internet portal “Make it in Germany” shows how skilled workers from abroad can successfully establish themselves in Germany and why it is worth living and working here.

“Make it in Germany” is a compendium of all important information on careers and living in this country. The website indicates which sectors are looking for qualified workers and the opportunities Germany offers trained workers from abroad and their families. The site additionally contains practical advice on such things as looking for a job, moving house and finding one’s feet. In short video clips skilled workers from other countries report on their experiences in Germany.

“Make it in Germany” is part of the skills offensive launched by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the Federal Employment Agency and created jointly with the German Economic Institute (IW) and IW Medien GmbH. The Federal Government’s aim in establishing the site is to persuade skilled workers in other countries of the advantages of living and working in Germany and thus counter the skills bottleneck resulting from demographic change.
