This paper examines the possibilities of sentiment analysis performed on German employer reviews. In times of competition for highly skilled professionals on the German job market, there is a demand for the monitoring of social media and web sites providing employment related information. Compared to mainstream research this implies (1) a focus on German language, (2) employer reputation as a new domain, and (3) employer reviews as a new source possibly showing special linguistic characteristics. General approaches and tools for sentiment analysis and their application to German language are assessed in a first step. Then, selected approaches are evaluated regarding their analysis accuracy based on a data set containing German employer reviews. The results are used to conclude major obstacles, promising approaches and possible prospective research directions in the domain of employer reputation analysis.
