Careers in French and Italian

French Language Career Fair-Wednesday, May 1st 10-3 @ Hanover Inn and DH 105


French career fair

In recent years, there has been a greater demand from employers for foreign language skills and French skills in particular. In a March 2017 report by The New American Economy, "Not so lost in translation", notes that the number of job postings online asking for advanced French skills increased by 134% between 2010 and 2015 in the United States. Meanwhile, the number of students enrolled in French in higher education has been dropping.  There is, therefore, a case to be made to highlight this coming skill gap on the labor market and underscore the advantages a mastery of French will offer students when they enter the workforce.

On Wednesday, May 1st 10-3, at the Hanover Inn and DH 105, there will be a French Language Job Fair organized by the Cultural Service of the French Embassy. The job fair will highlight French internships and jobs in the United States, giving students the opportunity to put their language skills to good use in the workforce. Make French one of your professional assets!

The event is sponsored by the Government of Québec and the French Embassy in the United States and organized by the Department of French and Italian and the support of the Center for Professional Development.
