Re: German Embassy And Visa by honourableseyi: 9:56am On Sep 06, 2014
I also remembered someone asking some time ago if someone can stay and get a job after study. The answer is CAPITAL YES. You are allowed by law to stay one year to look for job. As regards that, Government are even planning to extend it because some graduates (definitely not Nigerians) perceive its not enough and leave for their respective countries. So, as a way to encourage them to stay back, a bill is in the process of being passed to make it ah! 1+6months or 2 years or thereabout, not sure exactly.


The bill has been passed. It is now 18 months after your study. I read about it few months ago when I was making research about study in Germany. I also stumbled on this info when perusing DAAD website and I thought it might be beneficial to our aspirations.

EMBARKING ON YOUR CAREER AFTER STUDYING
You should start planning your career in Germany while still studying for your Master's degree. With a degree from a German university, numerous job opportunities are available to you as an international graduate on the German job market. This information will help you successfully launch your career.

Students from non-EU countries are allowed to remain in Germany for the purpose of looking for employment for a maximum of 18 months after graduating. These 18 months pass quicker than you think, so it's important to start job hunting during the final semester of your Master's degree, or at the latest "four months before finishing your studies," advises Maria-Theresia Jansen from the "Agentur für Arbeit" job agency in Bonn. As a member of a team of careers advisers specialising in academic professions, she has spent the last 30 years helping international graduates gain a foothold in the German employment market.

While looking for full-time permanent employment, you are allowed to work as much as you like. According to a new Right of Residence regulation, there are no longer any time restrictions on working during the job search phase.

Leaflet: Gainful employment

DAAD has summarized the legal conditions relating to working in Germany. Click here to download this informative leaflet.

Analyse yourself before you search for a job

Before you set out in search of a job, take the time to your ask yourself the following four questions: Who am I? What am I good at? What do I want to do? What is possible? Maria-Theresia Jansen refers to this as the "inner inventory". To avoid wasting time searching aimlessly, it is important that you answer these questions honestly.

The experienced careers adviser explains why it makes sense to answer these questions: "A lot of graduates only look for jobs that correspond 100% with what they have studied. They automatically ignore everything else." A big mistake, stresses Jansen, because this "tunnel vision" can make life unnecessarily difficult. Extend your search: you don't always have to end up doing exactly what you learnt during your studies! "It's important to look at related fields and transfer knowledge to other areas."

Take advantage of all the opportunities available to you, not just the internet!

Obtain an overview of the different sectors of industry and companies. Careers fairs and conventions for graduates are an ideal way of obtaining information and making new contacts. Information about such fairs is often posted on faculty notice boards.

Job vacancies are also advertised on university notice boards. You'll also find plenty of information through internet search engines, but remember that your university may also be able to help you! The Career Centre usually has a database which you can use to research job vacancies. The Career Service will also help you launch your career: it can advise you how to update application documents, coach you in interview techniques, inform you about company presentations – the list is endless, and often free of charge!

Information about job prospects

Many vacancies are advertised in sector-specific media: the "Verband Deutscher Ingenieure" (VDI) (Association of German Engineers) or the "Verband der Elektrotechnik" (VDE) "Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies" inform you not only about new developments in their respective industries but also about job openings in companies. There are numerous industry associations: an overview is available on the website BERUFENET. Enter your respective job title (e.g. biologist) and then select the appropriate job outline. You will find association addresses under "Informationsquellen" in the section "Berufs-/Interessenverbände, Arbeitgeber-/Arbeitnehmer-Organisationen". Industry associations also provide information about job openings.

Information about employment prospects for academics is available on the website of employment agencies. To obtain an overview of regional job market prospects, Maria-Theresia Jansen also recommends the Prognos Institut. The publishing company Staufenbiel also provides information about career opportunities and starting salaries for first-time job-seekers. According to a study carried out by the publishers, young engineers starting their career earn an average of between 38,000 and 47,000 euro. In the automobile industry, graduate engineers earn an initial 46,000 euro on average. Graduates with a Master's degree in the natural sciences can expect an initial salary of 42,000 euro.

Speaking German

"The number of job openings is very limited if you don't speak German," says Jansen. "Make the most of the opportunity to take a language course while studying for your Master's degree," recommends the expert. Of course, you can do an entire degree at a German university in English. And fellow students might not have a problem answering you with a bit more than a "yes" or a "no". But for personal contact with future colleagues, it is definitely advisable to have a command of the German language!

Re: German Embassy And Visa by Teflon1: 10:12am On Sep 06, 2014
nevilbot: My question is based on the travel insurance. Please I av a one year travel with mansard insurance. Can I use it or is it compulsory that it most be 3 months. Ur advice qil b apreciated

The letter says "...travel health insurance valid FOR 3 months starting from the date of travel" and when 1 is issued visa, the 90 days on the health insurance doc...corresponds to the no of days u will be given/stamped on the visa. So if ur health insurance is from 1Oct to 31Dec, normally u will get 90 days i.e from 1Oct to 31Dec but if u tell her u are flyn on 10 Oct, she will stamp 10 Oct on ur visa ...meaning 10 days will be deducted from ur 90 days...hence u will end up with 80 days on ur visa.

So based on ur question i am not so sure but i think dey may still hv to select 3 months from the 1year insurance u present, so they can work with it the way i explained above. Hope u find dis useful even if not conclusive enough.

correctguy0900: Thanks everyone for your generous contributions, Please, i need a way out on my current problem with the Deutsche bank. My block account opening documents was sent to the bank by the German embassy since late July this year. By mid August, the bank mailed me that there was error with the figure i entered. I followed their instructions on the supplementary form attached to the email and sent it to the address provided which was received by Flemming in Frankfurt. Over two weeks now, i am yet to receive information from them. i have also sent them countless emails through the non customer form on the home page but no reply. The embassy interviewed me yesterday Thursday, the consular said there was nothing she could do as regard the Bank. I received a mail from the embassy today Friday with an instruction to fund my account in order to continue with the visa application process.

Please, i would appreciate any suggestion as i am currently confused on how else to reach the bank. Thanks y'all

I hope all correspondent you recieved through the deutschbank ends with @db.com...I mean every staff working their has their mail ending with that.

I will advise you mail them directly... Use db.student@db.com
Lay your complaints clearly to them.

Also should the form be hand written (with a black pen, I suppose)?
