Our Services

Personnel Recruitment

The search for suitable employees in the US poses many questions for German companies. The GACC Midwest Recruiting Services Team supports companies expanding into the US with recruitment and clarifies possible risks.

We support companies within the German-American business environment with initial consulting, recruitment and follow-up. Our focus is the procurement of talents at all levels of experience in transatlantic and/or start-up companies as well as qualified bilingual specialists.

Joint Success - Expat Partner Program

The German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, Inc. offers individual support for people accompanying their partners on an international assignment. International assignments can present challenges not only for the expatriates but also for their spouses and families. The successful integration of an accompanying spouse into the new environment is the most critical success factor and requires both careful preparation as well as a strong support structure in the new assignment country.

The GACCs provide a range of services to ensure that your employees’ spouses and family receive the support they need to reach their personal goals.

With more than 60 years of experience in bringing the U.S. and Germany together, the GACCs understand the particular challenges faced by the expatriate community in the U.S. Our intercultural expertise, vast experience and wide network enable us to provide tailored services that meet your personal needs and to support you effectively at all stages of the international assignment.
