It was an interesting experience. Opportunities come from unexpected spots. I started last December, and am very very happy with the role, although it is “befristet”. My employer said that they intend to keep me. 🙂
Hello Mr. Pyak. I hope you're doing great. Actually I was excited to share this news with you, last week I got a job offer from a German employer near to Berlin. I am very much happy because coming to Germany and finding a professional job was my dream. Mainly to share your ideas and methods do work for me by reading your book and attending your podcasts which were really helpful to me. I am looking forward to the last podcast for this year.
Until then, I wish you a happy Advent season, a Merry Christmas and a good start into the year 2020.

I just want to tell you that I found a much better job. I have been in the new job for over a month now. Everything is great. And Munich is a great city with a lot of opportunities for international professionals. I think to be successfully in landing a good job is your methods+ consistent practice+ encourage + some luck. I still clearly remember how desperate I was 1.5 years ago just to land a job :).

Hi Chris. Hope you are doing well. I’ve got a job although I didn’t book you exclusive service. But I’ve read your book joined one of your online seminars. Although there were a lot of craziness to get a work permit after I received an offer but everything works fine now. Anyways, I just want to say thank you and if you ever need me to share my story or write something. I will be happy to do so. Thanks again and all the best to you.
I read your book and applied the knowledge gained and your tactics in approaching the application process. I initially got an internship position from a company that rejected my application for a job position, and now found a job at a global company. Thanks for your knowledge and insights.
With great sence of joy and accomplishment, I just got off the phone with a manager from a company and the conversion was great. He has told me to send my cv and cover letter directly his email address. He called me back again to confirm his email address with me.
I am very glad and thankful to you as always.
Hi all. I'm leaving these messages amd sharing my experience of last week before the call starts for 2 reasons, 1. It will be long, 2. I am going partying to celebrate getting a new job.
My experience is almost exactly how Chris told us it would be. His tip on talking directly to the hiring manager and not the HR works! It happened for me so it can happen for everyone.

“Being from North America I was unfamiliar with the interview process in Germany. With Chris’s help I was able to identify what I really wanted and how to quickly determine what potential employers are looking for.
I learned the best way to conduct a job interview, which are the best questions to ask and how to make it easy for potential employers to present me will a job offer. Being part of the contributors circle was also very important for me.
During the weekly calls with other job seekers we discussed our challenges, successes and were able to share helpful hints with each other. I am grateful for the support, learned a lot and was successful in finding my next career step.”
