U.S. Job Search Guide

The French American Chamber of Commerce (FACC) Chicago’s Professional Mentoring Committee is pleased to share our new U.S. Job Search Guide.

We created this Guide to offer experience, support, and insight to French expat professionals entering the job market in the United States. The objectives of this Guide are to help prepare you for a job search in the U.S. and to make your transition to the American workplace culture as smooth as possible.

In these pages you will find critical information on U.S. employment law, guidance on updating your CV, advice on building your LinkedIn profile, tips on effective networking, and insight into the all-American skill of selling yourself.

The Guide contributors are French or multi-national professionals who have lived and worked on both sides of the Atlantic and experienced workplace cultures different from their own. We hope you will find these pages useful. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or feedback. 


Thank you to our U.S. Job Guide contributors!
