A chance for the future

Recently we introduced you to Wuttke Ingenieure GmbH from Chemnitz (read our article here) and now it’s time to get to know some of the team members. First up is Degwar Qhrman. He is 25 years old, from Syria and since August 2018 he is training to become a surveying technician. Degwar was kind enough to sit down and answer some questions for us.


How long have you been working in Germany and why did you decide to emigrate to Germany?

I have been in Germany for about four years. A friend had told me that my chances of successfully applying for asylum and finding an apprenticeship or a job in the country would be quite good. Here is where I see a chance for my future.


Were there any difficulties with the 'emigration'? If so, how were you able to overcome them?

Did you have help with the recognition of degrees, finding a job, housing, etc.? If so, from whom?

Moving between countries was rather difficult because the borders were closed. The hardest and most dangerous passage was traversing the Mediterranean to get from Turkey to Greece.

After I had arrived, some German friends helped me to find a job and a flat.


If you compare the working conditions in Syria with those in Germany, what is better here, what is perhaps not so good?

The advantages of working in Germany are the working hours, the health insurance system and pension schemes, occupational health and safety measures as well as the mutual respect among employees.


How did you find out about Wuttke Ingenieure GmbH as an employer?

When searching online for an apprenticeship, I found the company’s website and sent them an application.


What makes working at Wuttke Ingenieure GmbH special? What do you like best about your job, what could perhaps be improved?

I like that I get to work with technical devices a lot and that there’s a good mixture between office work and tasks in the field. That way I can work in different places.


Your tip for young people who dream of a job in Germany?

First of all, you should learn the German language and try to integrate into German society. After that keep your eyes open for job opportunities and don’t give up, even when you get rejected a couple of times.


Which prejudice about the Germans has been confirmed for you? Which one is not true at all?

I found it to be true that the country’s economy is strong and that there are good jobs with a high degree of security.


What typical German things have you gotten used to?

Punctuality, reliability and good organising skills – I even picked those up myself.


What do you like to do when you are not at work?

I like meeting friends, reading books and doing sports.
