Hi there everyone -
I know ... we've already been in your mailbox this week and we promise, there won't be any further mails until September. We're just getting in touch to recap some of the recent developments at The Berlin Life and share some other exciting news.
1) The website was completely redesigned! It's now easier to understand what we're about and all the ways we can help you move to Berlin and find work.
2) We now accept contributing writers and of course, it's a paying gig. We really need content about working in Berlin and dealing with things like bias, how to prepare for interviews, and more. Read our guidelines and get in touch if you want to contribute.
3) We created a new post profiling some of the best career coaches in Germany. If you need someone to help you with your job search, negotiate a promotion at work, or guide you in starting a new business, think about hiring a coach.
4) We shared some pretty cool content in our Facebook group this week:
- If you're registered as unemployed in Germany, you can receive free job and career coaching FEM.
- Wired profiled some of the hottest startups in Berlin. Use this list as inspiration about where to apply for jobs in Berlin.
- Someone in Berlin created a spreadsheet for people to share their salaries. This resource can help you figure out potential salary ranges while you're job hunting here.
- We let people know that ng-voice is hiring for several positions in Berlin
5) What's next? We have lots of exciting things on the horizon:
- We've partnered with Because Berlin and will share a new blog post soon telling you about all the ways they can help anyone wanting to move to Berlin to either start work or open their own business. A project funded by the Berlin Senate, their services are free of charge and in English.
- We recently published a post about the best Berlin blogs and soon, we'll share a post highlighting the best Berlin based podcasts. These podcasts are great for people already living here to learn more about the city, as well as for anyone wanting to move here.
- We'll be scheduling some autumn events, so stay tuned. Plans are to do at least one general Q & A session where you can ask us anything and workshops about cover letters and CVs for the German job market.
Thanks for sticking around with us. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out - send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
