Large cities more popular than the province
It is no accident that big cities are more popular than the province. After all, the labor markets here are more extensive than elsewhere, the chances are more diverse.
The career atlas of the online job market Yourfirm therefore examines the career benefits of major German cities and also evaluates the job markets for the most wanted occupations.
Munich: Industry-wide front
If you take the cross-sectoral evaluation of the career factors as a starting point, you should probably apply for a job in Munich. Among other things, salaries are highest here and unemployment is close to full employment.
The development on the labor market has also been surprisingly positive in recent years. Between 2010 and 2013 alone, the supply of jobs subject to social security contributions has grown by around 9%. Even with "soft" factors such as the quality of life, the Bavarian capital plays a leading role.
Bremen: Energy industry - craftsmen and engineers are in high demand
A clear loser in the overall evaluation, however, is the Hansestadt Bremen. Here the salaries are comparatively low, unemployment is high. Above all, however, the economy of Bremen is lacking momentum in order to open up to the other large cities and become attractive to a lot of workers.
Bremen, too, offers career prospects, for example in the maritime industry and particularly in the wind energy sector, just like any other city. Not least, therefore, craftsmen and engineers are Bremen's most popular occupational groups.
Stuttgart: SMEs and engineers
Even more focused on engineers is the Stuttgart labor market in the cities studied. One tenth of all job advertisements are made by Stuttgarter Company to this professional group. Around six percent of Stuttgarters already work in an engineering profession.
A major plus for the regional economy is the strong middle class. However, in the overall assessment of the factors under investigation, the state capital is surprisingly poor. This is due above all to the high life costs and the low growth of recent years.
The Berlin: StartUp or Group?
In Frankfurt, on the other hand, the numerous large corporations located here, especially in the financial sector, are facing tremendous demand for managers and consultants. Employees also have the best opportunities on the Frankfurt employment market.
Anyone who thinks they are more in the manageable StartUp at home should be in the best hands in Berlin. At the startup scene in Berlin, not only are many exciting ideas being created, but also a lot of new jobs. Thus, the Berlin job market is not only the fastest-growing, it is also extremely versatile.
Manager and craftsman
By far the most sought-after professions in the capital are managers and craftsmen. In addition, however, project managers or accountants are also highly sought-after.
The still high unemployment and the rather low wages, however, continue to prevent Berlin from playing a leading role in the attractiveness of employees.
Dusseldorf in the overall ranking on 2
Therefore, place two of the overall rating goes to Germany's most important mobile radio location, Düsseldorf. The Rheinmetropole is also top for jobs in the advertising and fashion sector.
