Learn about German Culture
Save yourself from the embarrassment of cultural faux pas while transitioning into German culture. Read up and know which subjects are taboo and which are acceptable. For one, German companies observe strict vertical hierarchy. This means that decision-making is done at the top of the organization. Take note that business relations are formal and that perfectionism, punctuality and careful planning are expected. Personal privacy is likewise valued and respected—so don’t ask too many personal questions and be careful about over sharing—it may make some people uncomfortable.
Research, research, research. We can assume that you are doing your homework, but make sure you spend extra time learning about housing and living conditions. Be realistic and be fully aware of what it means to live in Germany.
Recent studies have shown that the cost of living in Germany is neither cheaper nor more expensive compared with other European countries. However, its public healthcare system has a positive reputation internationally and is acclaimed as being one of the best. Citizens and those who work in the country typically contribute 21% of their gross annual income to social security—this hefty contribution ensures that you are well looked-after in case you need medical care.
There’s also the Visa application process that takes between six to 12 weeks to process—so make sure you account for this in your moving-to-Germany timeline.
