Hi All,

I'm working as a Java Programmer in Bangalore, India.
Currently I'm a 6-months experienced guy in JavaServer Pages, Servlets , JDBC APIs, MySQL and a little in Swing.

I'm interested to work in Germany and willing to know is there any opportunities in Germany for One-year experienced programmers.
I'm eager to know the German company's demands over the Programmer, Java.
What are they expecting from a one-year experienced programmer, in context of technical and German language proficiency and such?

I hope the programmers in Germany will give some valuable suggestions...

Thanks,

To put it simple, it is very hard or nearly impossible to get a job in Germany for the experience you have.

One year of experience is very little, and the items you mention are quite common (I'd say everybody has those), so that's not really a plus.

Since you didn't mention language proficiency, I'll assume that you have none - that makes it quite hard, since there are very few positions where English is the working language.

And since you didn't mention a residence or work permit, I'll assume that you don't have that, either - combined with the experience and language handicaps I'd say this is a non-starter.

I've demonstrable knowledge in the languages that I've mentioned. How can I get work-permit to Germany, since I'm a natively Indian?
If you know that can share it, so as the rest of alike like to work in Germany would also get to know..

Thank you for your information that there are a very few positions for English speaking programmers..

Thanks a lot Ulf.

No idea, I've never had to do that :-) But there must be tons of web sites out there that explain the process, not least the federal government.

Didn't I say already in my earlier post above that the chances are nil? It is nil because finding an employer who could sponsor your WP is remote with the experience and the skill set you have. As Ulf mentioned in his post above, the technologies that you are well versed with are quite common and not something niche. Even with a niche skill, the chances of getting a job here in Germany from India is difficult. Better concentrate on your current job and learn something new.

Ulf meant human languages, not programming languages. You may be proficient in Java, but are you proficient in German?

I have seen so many Indians just start out and immediately start looking for jobs in countries like Germany Denmark , looking straight at the greens (or whichever color the Euro is, which is quite multicolored IMO )

Hello Venkatesan Ramar

Could you please enlighten us with your views on what motivated you to search for job in Germany ?

IMHO Germany is not the most sought after place for IT professionals.
