    I need work.

    So for those of you who may not know, I've been out of work for a couple months now. I have a few peeps I do bits of side work here and there but I need more or at least something steady.

    The problem is I'm stuck in Germany until August 2013 and nobody wants to sign a contract with someone in a different time zone half way around the world.

    This is a plea for anyone who might be able to help to drop me a line.

    Thanks.

    p.s. my new portfolio link is in my footer.

    I don't know about your German or if you want to stay in Germany and are interested in jobs. However, obviously some companies are looking for flash Developers, e.g here:

    http://www.icjobs.de/?action=stellen...ler&country=de

    You may also look around the Flashforum.de. However, you need to speak some German of course.

    Well that's a problem isn't it? I don't want to be here but I have to for one more year. I don't speak German... at all. No one is even responding the resumes I send out. I'm having to consider some other options to bring in money which is massively depressing to say the least. Looks like I might have to get IT certified, those jobs are all over the place here.

    Look at the F2P gaming Industry.
    There's tons of jobs in Berlin, Hamburg, Karlshure, Munich and Dusseldorf.

Its hard not to be very angry it is impossible We have to focus this confusion frustration helplessness feeling into a creative outlet Anger can spawn such amazing creativity through Street art Free art to teach each other know each other a language our evolution Go ahead and break some dumb rules

    If you need help with German let me know. You may also want to look at Flashforum.de and contact some people there.

    jaquan,

    I feel your pain. Just found out that I'm getting laid off next week. Bummer, but I have to look at it as an opportunity for something better to come along...hopefully soon!

    Good luck!
    Love like you've never been hurt, live like there's no tomorrow and dance like nobody's watching.

    That sucks fp, you still doing any kind of flash work or what?
    @atRax, any idea how to find those F2P job listings? I find that most germans (especially developers) speak pretty good english. I'm willing to try anything at this point.

    Time to Start Your Own Business.

    Hopefully with small games or apps for online clients.

    That's the mid-term plan. I've done a ton of planning, research and leg work to make that a reality but at this minute it's not in the cards. I need money coming in immediately using the marketable skills I have now.

    Anyway, we need to talk dude. Nothing concrete, but let's catch up. Soon.

    Xing is the social Networking in Germany and linkedIn.
    Get your profile set on both and join groups related to social games and F2P.
    If you do mobile you are sure to have a job next week.

    Theres about 60 companies + between Berlin, Hamburg and Munich.
    Berlin is the VC place in the world since the last 2 years and startups are booming everywhere.

    Thanks for the links man!
    Wooga already turned me down but I'll check the rest.
    @Gerbick, I only use skype for video and I'm never sitting at that machine. IM is a better way to hit me up. Please do.
