Finding a Job in France

Meccas for job-hunters include the American Church in Paris which even offers career forums for job-seekers and the American Cathedral in Paris. Both have notice boards crammed with employment opportunities, courses and housing listings.

Most expatriate meeting places in Paris distribute the free bilingual newsletter France-USA Contacts that comes out every other Wednesday. Its classified ads are best followed up on the day the paper appears. It is also a good place to put your own "Work wanted"? ad. You can do this ahead of time by contacting FUSAC in the U.S. at P.O. Box 115, Coopers Station, New York, NY 10276 (212-777-5553, fax 212-777-5554).

Once you get some experience under your belt, you will often get more work through word of mouth.
