I have a 1 year contract job in the IT industry that will end in April, which will probably renewed into a unlimited contract. I am thinking about not renewing the contract and change to a new company when the contract ends. (If I do not find anything when the contract ends, I will renew it).
I still have approximately 4 months, so I think it is a little bit early to prepare CVs and so on. But I would not like to get the new job 2 weeks after renewing the contract.
Is it OK to contact a recruiter and ask how long does it usually take to go through the recruitment process?
btw: I am in Germany. As a "fresh" foreigner I do not know the "job culture" yet.
