Do you speak German? This could make things easier. Personally I’m not speaking German in a good level but I’m working in IT. I would recommend to get in touch with the employment office of Munich they can offer support and they have a system that they send you job positions according to your skills. Secondly what kind of job you are searching? I would suggest to make your cv and cover letter and start applying to positions that are interesting to you by LinkedIn, Xing, monster, indeed. Apply as much as you can. If you don’t get any response don’t discourage and keep applying. I would recommend if your German skills are not good to enroll to a German course.

Hi . Thank you very much for your response. I don´t speak German fluently yet, but I´m going to start an intensive course next month. I am mainly interested in construction field.

Hey! I’m a civil engineer as well, but my focus is on traffic engineering, so I’m not in the construction field at all, but I know a few friends who are. Most of them needed to reach quite a high level of German, I think B2, and some even did like specialized German courses for terminologies in Construction. As far as I know, communication skills are the most important, so if you’re not even officially B2, but are able to communicate quite easily, then that should be fine. But as awingg22 said, don’t get discouraged, you’ll find something sooner or later. But if you know or find a company where many people speak Spanish, meaning also the construction workers, it might be easier. Good luck!
