Foreign Professionals Intergrating Very Fast into the German Job Market

Considering the demographic problem in Germany, foreigners especially from outside the EU are Germany’s only hope.

According to a study that was recently released by the Bundesinstituts für Bevölkerungsforschung (BiB), foreigners from the non EU states are moving to Germany with better qualifications than those of the Germans and are integrating very fast into the German job market.
35.9% of the foreign professionals who moved to Germany between 2010 and 2011, all had a job within 12months of moving to Germany, in the 90s this number was only 16.7%. 41% of these that moved between 2010 and 2011, all had tertiary level of education which qualifies to atleast a University degree. In Germany only 3% of the population has a tertiary level of education. (Read more at: Work Force in Germany, What fields do Germans train in?)

Unfortunately this is not the case for both genders, out of the surveyed number 53.4% of the men had gotten jobs while only 20% of the women could get jobs despite having equal qualifications.

Experts say the reason for this rise in numbers is because most of these foreigners migrated solely for jobs. The government is encouraging such migration through the introduction of the EU Blue Card.
