Well, it depends on what qualification you already have. For example, if you are a recent undergraduate student hoping for good quality jobs in Germany, you may find the procedure tough. Because countries like Germany are very developed and the jobs there are highly competitive. You will need at least one international degree that can solidify your candidature.

Take an experienced professional for example. If a person has done a masters from an abroad university (maybe Germany or not) and after that they have some work experience, it will be easier to get a job in Germany then. The qualification and experience in this situation will act in our favor to peasant a strong candidate.

On the other hand, if you don't have a master's degree by your side it is very hard to land a job in a country like Germany. Don’t get me wrong, you can do so with a bachelor only but having an Indian degree and applying to a German job is not very common. The company's theory will favor their graduates from their countries first. This doesn’t only increase the competition for you but also makes your profile weaker.

Therefore the best way is to do a masters and then search for a job accordingly. Doing so will allow you to choose a relevant master program through which you’ll gain valuable knowledge in the subject. Germany is a really good country packed with world-class universities.
