Hello @Khan,

I am sorry to say that you can't change your status as intended.
If I remember correctly your home country is Pakistan. For countries without special regulations the Federal Foreign Office says about accessing the German labour market: "All other foreign nationals must apply for a work visa from their local German mission before coming to Germany". See details here:

Kind regards
