How long can I stay in Germany, how long is the shortest time?
As a rule, the employment contracts are indefinite. It depends on how much time you want to spend in Germany. After five years of work in Germany, you receive the rights to the pension from the German pension system. For less than five years, only the time for your national pension insurance is calculated, taking into account the national minimum wage. For this reason, it is more profitable to work in Germany for more than five years, because the resulting benefits are generally higher than those which could be achieved at the same time due to the lower wage level in the home country.
What conditions do I have to meet to be hired?
Completed training as a nurse, radiologic technologist, physiotherapist, doctor
Where are taxes paid?
In Germany according to the applicable tax system.
How is the recruitment process?
After the employer has selected your candidacy and accepted your résumé, you will be invited to the employer for an interview at a certain location or you will be invited for a Skype interview. A personal interview with the employer will also include an internship on the same day. As a rule, the decision about an appointment and the possible appointment date is discussed on the same day, as well as the organizational issues with which an employee of our company will be involved.

This question is individual and depends on the employer. Otherwise, the applicant pays the trip to the presentation date itself.
