How much will the search for suitable applicants from abroad cost me?

The search itself and all other measures are free of charge until the position is actually filled. The fixed commission is only due after signing the employment contract with the applicant mediated by us.


Do the foreign applicants want to stay in germany permanently?

Are the qualifications of foreign applicants comparable to German degrees?

The training and education foreign applicants receive obviously is not always equivalent to the one obtainable here in germany. A majority of the industry specific skills are obtained through actually working in a specific field, here the differences between working in germany or abroad are much smaller. If you are looking for applicants with very specific skills or qualifiacations we will consider these in our search for your ideal employee. 


Are the CVs and certificates of the applicants comparable to typical applications from Germany?

We take care to adapt the CVs of ur foreign applicants to german standarts.

This should be taken into account when considering their CVs.
