Why are jobs still being sent abroad

Working abroad

Even if TV series and TV documentaries mostly use the cliché of “sun, beach and palm trees” as a reason for emigration, it is actually more highly qualified people who are thinking about saying goodbye to Germany.

Currently it is mainly freelancers in IT who are flirting with the idea of ​​emigrating. Your chances of finding a better-paying job abroad are many times higher than at home. In addition, they are attracted by the adventure of a different culture and mentality.

However, it is not always necessary to resign from your previous job: Many German companies have international branches in which they employ expatriates. Even if they return to Germany after a while, their knowledge of foreign languages ​​and their intercultural know-how will give them better opportunities for advancement at home.

The trend to go abroad to work there has been generally strong for years: According to the Federal Statistical Office, 270,294 German citizens emigrated in 2019. Since only the formally recorded emigrants are included in the statistics, a large number of unreported cases can be assumed. The actual number is therefore higher, although late repatriates or naturalized people who have returned to their homeland are also included. The tendency to emigrate is clear.
