Is putting a picture in your CV so important even if you leave them personally? For Fuck's sake

oh that's because HR in Berlin is a joke. 80% of the times I dropped a resume at any office in Berlin females in HR looked for features that they'd want in a boyfriend instead of an employee (also total disregard of actual skills). I'm sure the same happens with male HR scanning for potential female employees.

Yes.. They want to see what colour you are. Why else would you require a photo for a job?God forbid you may even be third generation Turkish German with the best qualifications,the brightest star.the way forward with innovative thinking..FORGET IT..The job will go to some lame jerk...Please take your skills and intellect and go to a place that understands that these qualities are what makes the worl a better place. Honestly.These people will destroy you.

Trust me, if a place requires you to be a white German male in order to offer you a job, is a place where you don't want to work at.

I'll start with some good points before the carnage.

-Low population density
-Excellent public transport
-Food: price/quality ratio is generally very good
-Infrastructure is great
-Green spaces in the summer are beautiful

I have stayed in cities made of chrome and glass, all the way down to places which have no plumbing/electricity. The one thing I can conclude from my travelling, no matter how nice everything is, if the people are terrible, everything is ruined. Berlin could be wonderful, it really could. We have a city where I never see traffic, where you never have to wait for public transport, where you can idle away whole days under trees and escape everything. This tranquility comes to an abrupt end, when dealing with most demographics in Berlin. Want to file your VAT? bam! you'll do it every month because they don't trust you. Want to go a house party? bam! prepare to enter a room with a set of chairs poisitioned in a horse shoe... yes, everyone will stare at you, upon entering. Want to go on a date (male version) prepare yourself for a heart of coal. Want to go on a date (female version) you must be a domanatrix. Those German boys are to meek.

We must look at ourselves as well and accept some of the blame. The majority of us expats are clueless humanities graduates, thick rimmed glasses, combined with superflous posturing and naval gazing. You'll walk the streets and see important issues reduced to selfie loving moments. Tinder profile snaps of some female hygene product climbing a pillar in the holocaust memorial site. Some chick in a Neokolln bar with second hand furniture, playing poop '80s electro, keeping the family who lives above the bar awake... forever. The terrible terrible art which would never cut it in any other major city. The 'startup bros' who learn't javascript off Codecademy and now think their 'social app' is unicorn status.

It may just be me, I may have grown old and bitter. I long to see a smile and talk about anything which is not related to social justice issues to raise one's social profile, that new LP on Hard Wax, the new art project made of semen or that new organic coffee place, which does vegan pastrami pananis. Berlin is the city of people who came last in their school's 100m. They had to adopt quirks to get attention.

I apologise to all the hard working Germans, people who are here out of family reasons or those who are genuinely stuck here. May God have mercy on all of your souls.

Right, I'm off to bed. No doubt I'll hear my neighbours having sex again.

yep. but even this is coming to berlin east side. i held out for the long haul --10years on the old contract and got a luxury renovated apartment, paid for by the government no less since i managed to convince them i´m insane. im not, just a born actor/smartass. but its what they want if they had their way i know perfectly well, so look at it as a form of protest. rent went up 2.5 times in the last 5 years. if you have the stamina, go for it. berlin is investment potential now and ever changing. creatives all vying for a post of the proverbial log.. If you haven´t a portfolio you need not apply.

The rich are getting richer and the poor poorer same as everywhere else-- poop that use to lay curled up in the proverbial toilet is now being shuffled to the outskirts thanks to the gang of baby raping politicians the cops can´t touch. i mean alcoholics, the psychologically disturbed and other human detritus..char burg is run by the russian mafia, so yeah in places you can´t pass out anymore without them taking your kid and/or nuts...

prenz berg is pretty much like was posted above. except even better now there is a new racist wave of germans against other germans i love it when that happens. nothing like an arrogant hippie stuttgarter telling the berliner they´d be better off having their wall back! I´d rather be kicked in the teeth at a petting zoo...

Alcoholics esp. Like to blame nasty gentrification by the corrupt politicians or whatever but you ever think maybe they got what they deserved and got swept to the outskirts for a reason. maybe if you feel socially isolated you should do something about it besides drink. Like go to therapy to talk about your problems get a real job education direction maturity and relieve your jealousy toward hard working people on the whole.. the problem is opportunity. People have no chances anymore

Needless to say most moms are in the dark, leave their double decker kid carriage parked outside the dm waiting for a sadistic psychopath human trafficker kidnapper to pass by.

to make a long story short, i actually enjoy the new kinds of people with money and positive attitude in the lineups that join me in making fun of the negative disrespectful jaded disdained welfare bum washed up in the trendy cafe bitching i jumped the line when i didnt actually and everything costs 30 cents more....bitch female dog female dog sexual act sexual act wank

BUT, there are dangers that go with the money, the more money you have the less freedom. Do not leave junior unattended. Especially in a berlin east side supermarket or shopping mall. Berlin has a freaking seedy underground ask any schizophrenic. They all know but just don´t talk to each other


the foreigner refugees coming here nowadays have more money than me make no mistake about it. its more of the same shit. We live in a false democracy here same as everywhere else. if they dont find you useful you get wiped out. russian and china are coming and berlin is losing its charm of being a free place to live where you can walk around topless with a beer in hand smelling the smoke of weed on the breeze and grill fires in the park...welcome to the future. You have to hustle hard to live here and weigh the balance of whether or not it is worth it to you and for what reason. And protect your nuts and or children from being sold from 10 to 30 grand on the black market.

Dating is particularly hard. Yes, quality people are hard to find. Watch out for cokeheads who spread syphilis. It´s getting better in some ways and worse in others...you have to weigh the pros and cons and come up with a balanced argument. Attorneys do well here i expect...

FYI: i racked up five grand on lawsuits i won against shitbags over the years, but lost another five grand likewise to rip off artists. So berlin, so far, i´ve broke even...

It's cheap, but definitely not sexy unless you still into drugs and clubbing but that gets boring too eventually especially if you are going broke. I am trying to save up money to get out of here, but dude there are just way too many freelancers in my expertise here, and high supply of course drives prices down. Overtime I learned to be zen with Berliners' rudeness as life here for most is tough financially. Low income Americans have it harder, but at least they try to be friendly to strangers and remain optimistic.

Great to visit this site now I moved, really hope the idiots on this planet create another hype and the creative industry moves somewhere else.
