In the federal state reception center, the Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit) already provides the assessment of your professional competences. You will be asked about your educational and professional qualifications as well as your previous work experiences. If your professional qualification is needed on the labor market, you will receive a quick labor market consultation and you will be placed in recognition consultation. In case your professional qualification meets the requirements of the local labor market, you might also be allocated to the respective municipality.
Competences and qualifications are required for most professions. Especially, if you already have completed a vocational training or if you have a university de- gree, you should therefore take advantage of the competence assessment in the LAE.
