Recently was approached in Germany by well-known electric cars manufacturer in Berlin, it is their first factory in Europe and they need construction professionals for the new construction expansion.
They contact me via phone and invited for an interview in Berlin I live in Frankfort so it is a long journey via train. They insisted that I came in person so I booked the train tickets due to end of week cost me 300 euros two ways plus food.
Everything went ok, I reached the factory passed the 3 stages of interview and I was immediately congratulated by the hiring manager, saying: "welcome you have made it, we will send you the final contract for signature". I said fine, I was really happy since this is my first big opportunity in Germany as I need a decent offer above 60K per year to apply for a blue card.
Also, I was clear with them that I am on a study visas, and they said no problem they will sponsor the blue card requirements.
Few days later HR called me and discussed the salary, final offer bonus etc.. and I said fine and she told me please send your train tickets copies so we can endorse you. Next day she emailed me again, asking for documents, degrees insurance all send and I was hopeful.
Then she called back asking for the blue card, I said I told you I have no blue card I need your job offer to apply for it with the auslander in Berlin or Frankfort... 3 weeks passed now and they are not answering emails, phone calls or even SMS... I am really feeling so angry as how can someone treat hopeful candidate in such a way... I emailed asking for the train tickets endorsement but no reply.
Please advice me, 300$ for a student is a lot of money these days, plus the agony and mental stress all adds up... I was clear with them from day 1 that I am on a study visa, and they said no problem they will sponsor the blue card requirements...
