How to look for work in Munich

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Germany > Munich

Below are some resources that will help you in your job hunt in Munich.

CV, cover letter and interview

The first step to your job hunt is to have a professional looking, error-free Curriculum Vitae (lebenslauf) and a cover letter. Make sure that you adapt your letter to highlight how you can match what the employer is looking for. A one-size-fits-all approach is almost guaranteed not to work.

To make your application even more accurate, below are some tips on how to write a German CV. In Germany, applying for a job requires a bit more documentation than in other countries. German employers want a lot of information about a candidate even before they make their first decisions on whom to accept for an interview, so all applications need to include:

  • a cover letter
  • a "Lebenslauf" (CV)
  • a passport photograph
  • school certificates
  • testimonials of previous employment.

The German CV is a short, factual document of your key experiences and achievements and shouldn’t be more than a page long. It should include key details like personal information, professional experience, studies up to secondary school, studies after secondary school, other education and miscellaneous experiences.
