About Cheryl Howard
A Canadian who’s been living in Berlin for 10 years. Cheryl’s moved here not once, but twice. During her time in Berlin, she’s had five different visas and worked as both a freelancer and a permanent employee for a number of Berlin companies. She even managed to find a new job during the pandemic. That said, Cheryl knows what it takes to move to Berlin and find work.
Over the years, Cheryl shared her personal experiences by publishing a series of helpful blog posts, creating a thriving community of job seekers, and hosting events to help people find work in Berlin. In 2021, decided to put her coaching and recruiting talents to use by offering related services through The Berlin Life, bringing her existing content and community together into one spot.
