CV and Job Application Coaching for Skilled Foreign Professionals

Every country has its nuances in the job application process. Germany is no different.

If you’re using a generic CV / resumé format, you’re going to have a tough time finding a well-paid, stable job here in Germany. Writing a good, solid cover letter is another unique aspect of the job application process here. But what should you include and how should you formulate it?


We focus on SELF HELP and MENTORING with our coaching and consulting services, giving you the tools and the know-how to nail these processes yourself. We’re not going to hand you a job on a lollipop stick. If you’re looking for this, we’re not the right partner!

If you need some expert help on tailoring your CV and cover letter and getting ahead in the German job market, then we’d love to help you!

How do the consultation calls work?

Calls are to be scheduled via my appointment booking software, accessible online through the link I will send you with the welcome pack upon purchasing. Appointments must be scheduled 48 hours in advance, via Skype, Zoom or Whatsapp. Participate via audio or video, as you prefer. I make myself available at specific times each week in my calendar to take these calls. Note that this is not a personal concierge service of on-demand availability.

What happens after I purchase?

Upon receipt of payment via credit card or PayPal, you will receive an automated welcome email containing all of the downloads for the package, as well as detailed instructions on how to arrange the 1:1 coaching time with me.

Can you introduce me to recruiters / hiring companies?

I am not a recruitment consultant and Live Work Germany is not employment agency, so I cannot put you in direct contact with potential employers.  This service does not connect you directly with recruiters or employers, just to be 100% clear.

Depending on your industry and area of expertise, I may have contacts I know who could assist you further, in which case I am happy to pass on their contact details for you to approach them. It really depends on your industry.

How do I arrange the German workplace culture session (Premium Only)?

I work together with an experienced intercultural trainer who will conduct the 1 hour session for German business culture training (for those who buy the premium package). He/she will arrange this separately with you at a mutually convenient time, usually during standard German office hours of 08:00 – 18:00 CET. If you wish to book additional training or coaching with him/her directly, you are free to do so.

What level of personal access do I get to James?

Basic package offers 2 x 30 minute 1:1 sessions.

Standard package offers 4 x 30 minute 1:1 sessions.

I am available via email or WhatsApp for 3 months from purchase for anyone who buys the premium package. This covers any spontaneous queries or requests for advice or assistance outside of our scheduled consultation calls. 

I will respond to all queries within 24 hours (Mon-Fri) unless further research is required to answer your specific question. Weekends are not supported. In order to guarantee a professional service, I will only take on a maximum of 10 premium clients at any given time. If this service is fully subscribed, you will receive a notice informing you of this, instead of being directed to the checkout page!


What are the payment options?

We accept payment by Visa, Mastercard or Paypal. We do not offer payment plans or instalments.

Do you have a specific question? Or maybe you’d like an individual package tailored to your requirements?

Just enter your details and send us a message.

We’ll either email you a personalised offer or I can hop onto a Skype call to discuss your wishes together in more detail.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
