The Job of My Life is initiated by the German Employment Service with the goal of promoting youth mobility in Europe. The programme enables young people and unemployed young professionals from all over Europe to undergo an in-company vocational training or take up skilled employment in Germany.

The German Federal Administration offers also many different jobs and apprenticeships. If you are a national of an EU Member State or of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland and you're are interested in becoming a civil servant, you can apply for several programmes.

The programme Moving Times addresses young people from 18-25 years, who don't quite know what they want to do after graduating or want to take time off to reorientate themselves. The aim of the project is to give you an occupational orientation and to help you develop your personality.
