    Hello cunning linguists,
    I am getting nowhere with my job applications for Paris and would like to hear from anyone who is working there now or has worked there before. I am looking for a job in a language school, preferably teaching Business English. Has anyone got any tips?

    Jan,

    Have you tried turning up and knocking on doors? To be honest, I don’t know about Paris but my impression of the Continent (gained from years of experience in Greece) is that it cuts a heck of a lot of ice if you turn up and they see you in person. People are much more touchy-feely over here.

    Dear Jan,
    There is plenty of work in Paris in business english teaching for adults if you have your European working papers. Most likely you will have what is called a "vacataire" status, meaning that you will not work full time and that holidays are not paid, but your hourly rate is pretty good. You can even look on the official French Job site called "Pôle Emploi" – they are begging for English mother tongue qualified teachers!
    Good luck!
