a career asset

January 8th, 2010

v09Speaking French is an advantage for finding a job with the many multinational companies and organisations whose working language is French across a wide range of activities and businesses (retailing, automotive, luxury goods, aeronautics, etc.).
As the world’s fifth biggest economy and number three destination for foreign investment, France is a key economic partner.
In international organisations, French is one of the two official languages and a working language of the United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and international courts.
Nowadays, speaking one foreign language is not enough. Proficiency in French is a prerequisite for anyone planning on a career in international organisations and companies, and students who speak several languages will increase their chances of finding a job.
