Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
i got a job in germany this week. i am ethnic german 4 generations removed. i speak the language ok. took one minute to get thru customs. the officer just said make sure you go to the auslanderbehorde and get the paperwork done. mind u i have a lohnsteuerkarte already, etc.... ( social security card here)

mind you if i didnt speak the language i dont think it would have happened. also they wanted someone who had already lived here before for the job due to the culture shock(extreme) when most americans try to make a go of it here with no previous german experience.

and im really happy im back, danke gott!!!!
