As the title says, I'm a gaffer from Germany, 22 years old and currently train as an event technician at the WDR studios in Cologne, Germany.
Event technician is the official term for the apprenticeship, which includes studio work as well as live situations such as concerts and parties. However, most of the time I work as a gaffer in a studio environment.
As far as i know the dual education system in Germany is somewhat different to most other countries, so here you can get further information, in case its important.
So my contract will end in about a year and i feel like I need a new challenge, see how other people work in order to advance my skills.
Anyway, what I wanted to ask you is, whats the best way to get this going?
I know that I need to find a job in advance to get a working visa. How do you see that chances of finding an employer who is willing to put himself in the struggle of bringing me to the country?
Whats the best platform to look for jobs?
I'm glad for every piece of information on this topic as I feel kinda lost in the jungle the breaks open when you google for media jobs.
Thanks in advance!
