Seeking a new Future in Germany

1 comment

I came in 2015 to Germany in the big Refugees wave and worked for one year as a volunteer with the social office in the city of Lemgo. And now I'm looking for a new job that could help me to create a new, normal life in Germany. I chose to enroll in the course after the difficulties which I faced to enter the labor market in Germany. so I thought that I would need some professional tips to help me. I studied business administration in Damascus university and graduated in 2014. I value creativity, responsibility and professionalism. My short-term career plans are to enhance my lingual abilities, master the German language and to start building my career in Germany. Long-term plans are to master the field of international marketing and gain a master degree in it as well and to learn speaking French professionally .
