You can try the following: http://kleinanzeigen.ebay.de/anzeigen/stadt/hannover/ To sign up you just need to provide an e-mail address (which they protect). Tell them if you want them to pick up and give a price. People are less likely to answer if you have no price idea. If you are not sure write VB (Verhandlungsbasis), this means you are willing to negotiate. and / or: http://kleinanzeigen.meinestadt.de/hannover http://www.quoka.de/hannover/

I am married to a Dane. I am a US citizen. We currently live in the Philippines but intend to move to Flensburg in Aug 2015. We are both retired pensioners. Can you give me any information on how much one needs to live in Flensburg? In Euros. What would be adequate monthly income to live there? Also, any information on apartment rentals, cost of bus transportation, cost of living index. Thanks.

Hi there, not sure if this will help... I came across a site recently that compares 'cost of living' all around the world. www.numbeo.com. Hope it helps or at least gives an idea :)

I have been a professional firefighter in the United States for over ten years. My wife is potentially going to be transferring to a job in Munich (or another German city). I am aware that there are a lot of volunteer brigades, but I am wishing to continue my professional career in the fire service while in Germany. Can anyone offer any information regarding getting a job in the German fire service?
werebear replied most recently with:
I could be completely wrong but I would try contacting the ZAV first to find out just what all exactly you would need to get your credentials verified for Germany, and also what areas to look into. Have you looked at the JobBorse site? I found a PDF file that might help you to find out what information you would need http://www.brandweervlaanderen.be/Portals/BVV/Documenten/Kennisdossiers/Vorming%20en%20Opleiding/Duitsland.pdf not sure if this helps or not

Hello, I'm about to move to Munich And my partner says its very difficult for non German speakers to get a job. Just wondering what other English speakers think about this as i can imagine it be harder for other foreigners such as Albanian with English to find a job in Germany. I am working in Albania for a international company that operate in Oil and Gas industry as Finance Coordinator. My fiance study medicine and she like to get the specialisation in Germany. What opportunities do we have to get a job and specialisation in Germany ? Please if you have any suggestions it will be very helpful to me. Thank You

All people no matter specialization or not a person has will have to go through the government . There are more ways however for Students or Nurses and Doctors or Scientists to get work. I HAD a proffessor in the US as my advisor at one time-Geology, he has an office in Switzerland I can give you his name if you would like in a private message of course...
