For professionals

Is using Employland completely free of charge for me, a professional?

Our complete range of services is free of charge for job seekers who publish their profile with us.

How do I create my profile?

You first have to register and this is followed by an email verification. You can then complete your profile and make additions or amendments at any time if required.

In general, you always have the option of publishing or deactivating your profile. We check the data that you entered for plausibility when you initially publish it and then activate your profile online.

Which parts of the data that I entered are published?

Some of your data is publicly visible. Only employers located in Germany who have registered with us can view all of your data. Your contact data is not published; your email address is only known to our database.

Employers can only make an initial approach to you via our platform; they do not yet know your name at this stage. After this initial contact has been made, employers can also view your name and the certificates that you have uploaded. This procedure ensures that the German employer can be invoiced by Employland after the recruitment process has concluded successfully.

How do negotiations with employers proceed?

1. Getting to know each other:

After the initial approach by the employer via email, you can get to know each other better by phone, chat, or email. Your potential employer may even invite you to Germany for a job interview.

2. Concrete contract negotiation:

If the “getting to know you” stage progresses positively, the employer may want to negotiate concrete details of an employment contract with you. We will inform you of the company’s offer to negotiate by email. By clicking the mouse, you can accept or reject the offer.

  • accept: You then negotiate the employment contract in concrete terms: desired start date, your concrete occupation with your employer, working hours per week, vacation days per year, length of probation period, period of notice, gross salary and other details. Extensive information about a typical employment contract in Germany can be found here in our blog.
  • reject: Your contact with the employer most likely comes to an end

Please note that you can conduct a maximum of two concrete contract negotiations at any one time. If you accept two offers to negotiate, your data will no longer be publicly visible and other employers will not be able to contact you.

If one of the two concrete contract negotiations breaks down, you can cancel the negotiation on Employland by clicking the mouse. Your profile will then be visible again to all potential employers, who will then be able to contact you once you have published your profile.

3. Signing the employment contract:

If you conclude an employment contract with an employer, we request that you inform us via the link “Negotiations already completed“. Only then - once you have taken up your employment - can we bill the employer for successful recruitment. That is how we make a living and in this way we can offer you our services free of charge.

How many employers can I negotiate a contract with at any one time?

Please note that you can conduct a maximum of two concrete contract negotiations at any one time. If you accept two offers to negotiate, your data will no longer be publicly visible and other employers will not be able to contact you.

If one of the two concrete contract negotiations breaks down, you can cancel the negotiation on Employland by clicking the mouse. Your profile will then be visible again to all potential employers, who will then be able to contact you once you have published your profile.

What are certificates?

Certificates are graduation certificates from schools, secondary schools, vocational schools or universities; certificates and references from employers are also included here.

Why can I not find any job vacancies?

Employland does not advertise job vacancies because you, the professional, are our focal point. You publish your profile only once and are then searched for and found by companies throughout Germany. There is no extensive search for suitable job vacancies and you do not have to introduce yourself again and again with your application documents.

Let the employers find you: The employer is the one who makes contact with you via our platform and applies to you.

How do I receive a residence permit?

If you are a member of third country and require a residence permit, your future employer usually tasks Employland with securing a residence permit and an employment permit for you. We can recommend a lawyer to identify the relevant residence permit for you and request a residence permit, an EU Blue Card, a settlement permit or a permit for EU permanent residency for you.
