I live in Oranienburg, Berlin and I'm currently learning for A2 German language. I have lived in Germany for 2 years and have received Reiseausweis with residence permit valid for the next 3 years. I would like to know how I can find a paid job with my status and what requirements is required.
Thank you in advance.

nice to hear from you again!
Are you searching for a specific profession or just a paid job in general?
Here is some information about the general procedure:
In order to find a job in Germany you usually write an application letter and a CV that you send to the company that you want to work with. Your application documents usually also include copies of papers that prove any further education that you did.
You can either search for open job advertisements on job exchange websites, in newspapers or you can apply directly at companies. The latter is called an "Initiativbewerbung" (speculative application).
For further ideas you can check out the answers provided by our community in the following threads:
