Stay in Germany after masters degree

I am going to obtain masters degree in mathematics in Berlin. The market in this field is very competitive.

  1. How I stay in Germany after graduation? (I heard that 3 years, is it true?)

  2. Can I work in different area?
    (I mean not as a mathematician)
    I can work as programmer in IT or, if I will not be lucky, as unskilled worker, like courier, carrier, porter, waiter, stuart,…).

If I find such unskilled job during or after graduation, can I stay in Germany?

I made the comment that this belongs into Expatriates Stack Exchange, but since there is a (heavily downvoted) answer in place I thought I'd add this as an answer, too.

  • As a graduate from a German university, you can get a Aufenthaltserlaubnis zur Arbeitsplatzsuche für Fachkräfte (roughly translated jobseeker's visa for professionals).
  • Germany gives work visa (Blue Card EU) to academics with basic language skills and a well paid job offer. How much you have to earn depends on the sector, for an IT job it is about €43k per year. Even an entry-level programmer can make that much.

It is important that you start the paperwork before you graduate. The student's organization in your university (ASTA) may be able to help.
