Many sectors are suffering from a shortage of skilled workers, and this is a problem which is going to get worse in the future. The effects of ongoing demographic changes are becoming more noticeable. This means that the number of people of working age is decreasing while the number of elderly is constantly increasing. For the future of the metropolitan region, it is essential that people of working age move to FRM, ideally with their children.
The lack of skilled workers is particularly noticeable in the mid-tier sector. These small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) are the backbone of the German economy, the fourth largest national economy in the world. Often family-run, they are highly specialized and export their products worldwide. The mid-tier sector is continuing to grow and is reliant on an outstanding workforce. However, as potential employers, the SMEs are often overlooked by international skilled workers, as they are not always well-known internationally.
In particular, companies in FRM are looking intensively for motivated trainees, Azubis. International graduates from German universities are highly sought after as skilled workers. Therefore, as far as career planning is concerned, international students are given extensive advice and support.
