Germany – The number of unemployed graduates of African descent has increased from about 2,000 to nearly 12,000 from June 2013 to June 2014

Over the last couple of years the number of students from sub-Saharan Africa, who come to study and work in Germany, has increased. But getting a job can be difficult depending on the field of study one is taking.

Most students from African countries who happen to study in Europe or the US prefer to work in the respective countries after graduating.Germany

But statistics from the Bundesagentur für Arbeit (Germany’s job center), reveal that the number of unemployed graduates of African descent has increased from about 2,000 to nearly 12,000 from June 2013 to June 2014.

Although Germany has opened its doors for foreign experts and qualified professionals to work in the country, this however, is mostly limited to doctors, engineers, scientists and IT specialists.

Many people who have other degrees have trouble getting a job.
