The Poles are the other major group, followed by the Hungarians. The program The job of my life or MobiPro-Eu under its official name, offers financial aid to young Europeans to come to train, to make a dripping or work in Germany at one of the areas where missing the labor, such as catering or elderly care.

Young people who are selected get financial aid to make German courses in their home country, be presented in a job interview or to move.
