bw-i: Great perspectives in the German Southwest
Baden-Württemberg´s industry has ambitious goals. However, there is a lack of up to 200,000 skilled workers on average per year in the Southwest, according to a survey (IHK-Fachkräftemonitor) carried out by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (in German “Industrie- und Handelskammer”) in 2017. In the future, this lack is even expected to grow due to demographic trends.
With the website www.bw-jobs.de, the state informs domestic and foreign specialists about their job opportunities in Baden-Württemberg.
The website offers a search engine for jobs and internships as well as tips for application and arrival in the region. In addition, you can see what Baden-Württemberg offers you as a future place to live.
