Most important thing first - relax. You'll find a new job. What makes me so sure?
- Firstly because according to statistics from the Federal Employment Agency there is a very high demand for IT specialists in all sectors.
- Secondly because you have a very big advantage over applicants from outside Germany: you are already in the country. The employer does not have to bring you into the country or wait for you. You can start working the next day after your recent employment in Germany.
- Third, you already have a work permit. As soon as your next employer finds out about this, he will be happy because the formalities for your employment will be minimal.
- Fourthly, a German employer is aware that you know what life is like here and how work processes are regulated in Germany. German employers consider this experience very important. For this reason alone the next employer would prefer you to foreign applicants from outside of Germany.
And now off we go!
Report immediately to the relevant immigration authority. Do not wait
till the end of the current employment. Notify as soon as you have received
the written contract termination.
Send an informal message to ABH by e-mail. Attach the letter of contract termination. Ask what formalities are to be completed now. Ask for confirmation of receipt of this notification.
You are obliged to inform your employment agency of the reason(s) for your
unemployment (obligation to cooperate). If you do not tell the
reasons, this could have an impact on your unemployment benefit, in particular
by so-called blocking period (Sperrzeit).
Reasons which may lead to a termination of employment may be, for example:
- You have cancelled your employment;
- You have signed a termination agreement*** or a winding-up agreement *** with your employer;
- Your employer has terminated the employment relationship because he/she accused you of acting in violation of the employment contract.
Step 3 (optional): - notify the Immigration Authority (ABH*) asap
