What does the preparation for a job application look like?

Marijana, who is a specialist in gynaecology and a person eager to learn and progress in her work, one day decided that it was the right time to make a change. That change also brought a completely new environment, home, culture and hospital, but also an opportunity to further develop her medical knowledge. “As hard as it was for me to get into all this, every step forward became easier. From learning a new language, that was at the beginning completely unknown to me, to relocating to the beautiful town of Uppsala,” said Marijana.

”At the beginning of this journey, I didn’t even know where to start. In the whole recruitment process Zrinka and Ivan helped me a lot, they told me exactly what to focus on and how to prepare correctly and thus, get closer to my ideal position. We started the adventure by preparing my CV, motivation letter, and other required documentation. What meant the most to me was preparation for the Skype interview that was the next step. We went through potential questions that could happen from the hospital. Why do I say it helped me the most? With all the help around the preparation of documentation which leads to the interview, that moment where I got in direct contact with the hospital finally came, and it was why I started all of this. During the training and simulation of the interview, I felt safe and ready because nothing could surprise me and I knew what to expect approximately.”

“After a successful interview, the following step was learning Swedish, a language that was completely unknown to me because it is not very common to hear it like English or German, on basically every corner. With all the work, effort, and desire, I fulfilled what I originally intended. And what else is there to say, except that together with my family a few months later, I breathed Scandinavian air, changed the environment, and continued living in beautiful Sweden. It is, in my opinion, definitely the best decision I’ve made so far, alongside my husband who has been my biggest support. ”

Nothing is difficult, nothing is impossible if you want something enough and if you have a will to achieve that. If you are scared, be grateful for fear, because that is exactly the small, invisible, I would dare to say a positive thing, which moves you and makes you scratch and go towards the goal.

What can pharmacists expect from life in Germany and Austria?

If you have a degree in pharmacy, the only thing that is expected of you is knowledge of the German language at the B2 level. We will direct you to further obtain a license to work and the possibility of employment, even in Austria.

Knowing Germany and its good economic development, the average salary of a pharmacist is between € 3,500 to € 4,500, which also applies to Austria. Of course, depending on the improvement of language skills, abilities, and experience, the salary level itself is affected. By staying in a foreign country, we will in some way be “forced” to use a foreign language and communicate, which results in improved communication and speaking skills.

Whether you choose Germany or Austria, the most sought after and paid places for pharmacists are pharmacies and some other pharmaceutical companies. When hiring, some of the more popular cities are Hamburg, Stuttgart, Essen, Cologne, Munich, Hanover, Bremen, and of course among them Berlin, as the capital of Germany. The option of smaller cities should not be excluded, except that they have similar characteristics as larger ones, they are also ideal for young families who appreciate peace and quiet. Whatever your choice of the city, you can not go wrong, because all of them have common features, where in the first place, quality at the business level, and in the second, diverse and interesting content, both for the young and the older population.

Working hours are approximately 40 working hours, during which it is rare to have overtime, but if the same happens it will be paid, as will the days when you are on holiday.

No relocation is the simplest or easiest, but sometimes we need to take that step forward and get out of our “comfort zone” because we never know what lies behind it. Working abroad, in addition to changing the environment and lifestyle, can bring us many positive sides, in various fields. In addition to becoming more confident in ourselves, richer in knowledge and skills that, knowing well, no one can “steal”, provides us with the probability of finding the desired job in our own country one day.

5 reasons to specialize in Germany or Austria

In the abundance of attractive offers for doctors without specialization in Germany, it is good to remind and point out the advantages that specialization brings in Germany or Austria. With a language certificate and a medical license in an EU member state, doctors who want to move to these countries can start the process of obtaining a medical license which you can find more about here.

1. you do not sign contracts with the hospital to stay after specialization

One of the biggest objections of young doctors in Croatia lies in the fact that while contracting a specialization, you have to sign a contract to stay in the country for the next few years after finishing the specialisation. This is not a problem for those doctors who do not want to work abroad, but if you are reading this post on our site, you are likely interested in the opportunities offered to doctors outside Croatia. However, if you see yourself in Croatia in the long run, you can also turn this advantage on your own by completing a residency in Germany or Austria and then getting a job as a specialist in Croatia without a contractual obligation.

2. greater mobility during the specialization

As the German-speaking area does not have contracts linking doctors to the hospital, trainees also have open doors of mobility between hospitals making it much easier to arrange a move from one city to another.

3. better standard of living

When it comes to living standards, Austria and Germany are always among the leaders in Europe. Of course, this does not mean that absolutely everyone will like these two countries, but there is a much higher chance that you will reach your potential and that your family will have better conditions.

4. more opportunities for professional development and education

What makes Germany and Austria interesting countries for the younger adolescent population are constant investments in technology and education, which opens the doors to professional improvement. Hospitals support doctors who want to learn, and additional training is regularly provided through various educations, courses and similar programs.

5. international working experience and opening of personal and professional perspectives

Apart from the fact that a specialist degree from Austria or Germany brings a certain dose of seriousness, international work experience in CV also shows that in practice you are ready to take the necessary steps to grow in your professional area. Living in a new country is also a great opportunity to better prepare yourself for life’s obstacles.
