These were the key questions:

- It is always a good idea to find the thing that makes you special, to identify your ideas and visions, to identify matching companies and to adapt your application documents to German standards.
- Don´t underestimate the application process.
- Get more IT skills, they might open new doors for you.
- Go and can meet people (conferences, meetups, events and more), don´t get stuck behind your notebook.
