How to find a job in France for Americans

Join the Toulouse-Midi Pyrénées chapter of France États-Unis in this workshop that will explore the differences between the US and French job markets

Finding a job in France can be confusing and frustrating for Americans because none of the skills honed in the US seem to work. This workshop will give an overview of the French job market, explain differences between French and American hiring practices and business creation, and give tips and tricks on how to find, apply, and land a job in France. The basics of creating a business will also be covered.

This workshop is geared towards Americans already in France with a work authorization (or carte de séjour vie privée et familiale), and will not cover visa applications or employee sponsorship procedures.
