Particularly considering the background of the shortage of skilled personnel, many companies are dependent on highly qualified foreign specialists ("white collar"). Also in the area of industrial employees ("blue collar"), a decline in applicants has been recorded. As a result, employers started to expand their recruiting radius beyond German borders. Business start-ups by third-country nationals are also becoming increasingly attractive.
