If you take our assessment, you will get an evaluation of your individual chances of coming to work in Germany. We have an internal point system which shows us whether you are currently eligible to join the Talent Pool. If not, you can actively work on your chances to qualify for our Talent Pool by following the steps in your roadmap that can help you improve your situation.
German Jobs has developed a point system based on an evaluation of different aspects of your situation. We look at your chances of getting a visa and resident permit which allow you to work here, such as the EU Blue Card. We assess how you meet the requirements of German employers. And we take into account your current level of German, qualifications, and current status of any licenses required to practice in your profession. All candidates receive a roadmap of the steps they should take to improve their score.
The point score does not represent an official assessment from the German government. It is a German Jobs evaluation, designed to give you an accurate idea of your chances based on our knowledge of how your circumstances compare to the requirements in Germany. You are always free to make your own applications to German companies and see how you do.
