Video portraits of successful Indonesians in Germany

Germany is recruiting, especially in the MINT area: mathematics, IT, natural science, and technology. Goethe-Institut Jakarta has produced videos depicting the lives of successful Indonesians who, at some point in their lives, have lived and worked in Germany.

In the videos they talk about their work, their leisure activities, their time in Germany, and their current work in Indonesia. They also talk about what they liked about Germany and how they learned German.
