    Well, knowing a few things would help in giving you a better answer:

    * do you speak German? If not - get to the books fast.

    * do you have a local work permit? If not, that's what you need to resolve fast.

    No company will hire you simply because you're American. On the other hand, there are plenty of companies in Germany that will hire non-Germans if they have the necessary skills and permits.

    Germany is the world's third largest economy (after the US and Japan), and one of the richest places on this planet. So pretty much any company with a global focus will be there, American or not. There are literally thousands of American companies hiring on the German market. From the large ones (Ford, GM/Opel, Dow, USX, Procter & Gamble, Colgate, Boeing, Microsoft, 3M, Citibank, Price WaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, Deloitte & Touche, just to name a few ...), to the medium and small ones you've never heard of ("Phoenix Consulting" in Munich?). And there are tens of thousands of German and non-German companies that hire people. Discrimination because of national origin is not only illegal according to German employment law, it is also almost unheard of.

    The key to success is to get the legal issue resolved (i.e. have a work permit), and present a skill package "You" that companies will find attractive and beneficial. That's what you need to work on. And part of that is learning the language.

    Source(s): Lived and worked there for 12 years. Learned the language, had a great time.

    if you live on base or have acces to a base you ould work there . Unless you also speak fluently german that you can get hgire by a german company . But remember the rules in germany are different to get a job than here in the states. where you can just walk up and get a job. In germany you need to write all the resumees papers to get a job!

    Germans do not like emericans to work there because americans work too hard and accomplish too much for them to handle. It takes three of them to do what one you can do.

    Now, Now just keep your cool over there in germany. It is true and you know it.

    No I do not live in the USA.

    I been to Germany and that i enjoyed it. the human beings in Frankfurt and different cities have been impressive to me yet i did no longer pass to Berlin or jap Germany because of the fact there is soo plenty hate crimes over there. as quickly as I spoke English to the markets plenty human beings questioned me asserting what's u.s. like and that i advised them this is a appealing u . s . a . and the land of freedom. pass to Germany because of the fact this is this sort of appealing u . s . a . and the dep. shops are fairly cool. My cousins stay in Germany and that they prefer it.
