Clearly a student's life is not always financially simple, all the more so if you study abroad.
But do not worry! Working in France while studying abroad is definitely possible.
The student must be registered in a school that entitles him/her to the French Student Social Security Care (language school or college ), and hold a residence permit, it's as simple as that!

French legislation allows you to work for a maximum of 964 hours per year. (60 % of the average legal work time in France).

You will need an APT (Autorisation Provisoire de Travail) or temporary work authorization in order to practice a paid professional activity. This APT is financed by your future employer.
If you are a European citizen, you are automatically entitled to work in France.

In France, employer-employee relationships are very formal and organized into a hierarchy.
It is therefore important for you to fit into this type of culture as much as you can if you are not used to it. It logically ensues that job interviews are also very formal - so take care of your looks! Your appearance must be appropriate and well -adapted.
In order to get these interviews, you should clearly and comprehensibly voice your professional training and experience related to the job you are applying for. Hello Study will help you in this matter.


French employers very often require motivation letters with your resume.

Make sure to detail your motivation in this letter for the job you are applying, and also show what you know about the company (without overdoing it of course!). Once again, we are there to assist you.
