  • I need advice! Job offers with french Last updated by Laura: Apr 5, 2017

    I’m looking for a job where I can use my French. My level is really high I am pretty much native but I learnt by myself. Whenever I look for jobs they only want native people and to be honest I don’t like to lie in my cv or in an interview .. I don’t feel good at all because if I ever get in I’ll see these people every day. Anyway, do you think I should invest in getting a French certificate? I haven’t done it because it’s expensive and I can’t actually afford it .. but I guess people don’t believe you can learn a language without doing an exam to prove you have that level… Any advice?

    • Hey Laura if I were you I’ll take the exam and earn that certificate because honestly that may be really useful and you can say no I’m not native but I have this level of French and this certificate assures it. So I don’t know I mean it’s no cheap and I when you are unemployed it’s harder to pay things like this but what if doing this gets you the job? You’ve got nothing to lose.

        • Yes! And if you get the certificate you can teach in the meanwhile. I mean, you can be a particular French teacher while you look for a job!
