Munich is a globally important city, with a high standard of living and numerous cultural and historical attractions. As Germany is currently the backbone of the EU's economy and Munich is its third largest city, economic opportunities here are better than in most places in Europe, especially if you have the right skills. In a fast moving business market, there are always jobs available for skilled expats — although hiring a translator for your résumé might be worth looking into if you aren't yet fluent in German. For this query, and many like it, InterNations would be a perfect place to ask; who better to go to for help in a foreign land than a fellow expat with years of experience living the same?
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Beijing or Dubai, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Life in Munich is not as much of a culture shock to many expats as other places around the world, but it still takes some getting used to. As a general rule, in the workplace especially, German people value efficiency, punctuality and order — so be on time and don't make too much small talk during working hours. If you do find German culture difficult to get used to, what better way to relax on your own terms than in the company of like-minded expatriates? Munich is a fascinatingly historical city, with a lot of cultural and entertainment attractions catering to all ages and types. InterNations helps you discover these hidden gems with the aid of your fellow expats in our InterNations Groups in Munich, who hold regular social events, activities, and excursions. From a vegan or photographic society, to girls nights out, singles evenings and Bavaria tours, there is literally something for the expat of any persuasion in the Munich Community. In addition, regular InterNations Official Events enable you to socialize and network with fellow expats and global minds.
