Our Goals

Vision & Mission

No way is long with a Friend by your Side. (Japanese wisdom)

We know: the way to professional success in Munich can be stony – especially for people who arrived in Germany not long ago and have to find their way around here first. Or those who study here and only vaguely toy with the idea of ​​staying in Germany after completing their studies. Language barriers and insufficient knowledge of the local work and education system often mean that even highly qualified professionals and students cannot make progress.

amiga accompanies You on your Career Start in Munich

At amiga, we support people like you, with an international background and a higher degree, in order to gain a professional foothold in Munich.
We have a great knowledge, and a respectful and cooperative attitude is important to us. amiga means “friend” in many Romance languages ​​- in a similar way, we see ourselves as an amicable companion who provides advice on your career path and has an open ear for your questions. Those looking for counsels around jobs will find answers under our amiga roof.

Marie from Denmark

„I feel it’s a quite hard process to search for a job – especially in a country where you are not familiar with the exact processes & requirements.  It’s also a bit lonely – that’s why it helps a lot having someone who you feel is “on your side” like amiga. I really appreciate your help in my job-searching process and, also importantly is the psychologically support you gave – small encouragements go a long way :)”

Bavarian Nordic, since July 2020
