Plus, with today’s technological advancements, it is now possible to work in France online through a plethora of online job platforms available to job seekers.

One of the great things about online work is that it can be done from anywhere globally, as long as you have a stable internet connection. This means that whether you’re still living in your home country or have already moved to France, there are many opportunities for you to find an online job that will suit your needs and skill set.

From an opportunity to teach French online to write amazing content for businesses and individuals, many job opportunities are open to those who want to work in the country and just enjoy France’s rich culture and beauty.

That said, let this article serve as your guide to finding online jobs in France.



Determine the type of online jobs in France you are interested in

The first thing you need to do is look at the types of online jobs available. Scour the internet for platforms that offer remote work. There are different platforms that specialize in different kinds of home-based work. For instance, some focus on writing, tutoring, graphic design, web developers, and even something as simple as online typing jobs.

Look for specific jobs

Apart from the list above,  you can also start looking for specific jobs that match your skills and interests.

One type of online job that is always in demand is writing jobs. Whether you’re a writer by profession or if you want to dabble in it as a hobby, there are many online opportunities for you to write high-quality content.

Another job that’s in high demand – and potentially pays well – is that of a computer programmer (coder). For example, if you know how to code in Python, you’re bound to find an online job for it.

If you have the necessary skills and experience, it’s best to start your job search by looking for companies hiring for the positions you are interested in. However, if you’re still unsure of what type of work you want, look at job boards and aggregator sites like Indeed and Monster. They have listings of online jobs from all over the world, so you’re sure to find something that matches your skills and interests.

Using online job search boards or aggregator sites is also very useful because they provide the necessary information to help you know if the company you’re applying for is legitimate. Additionally, these portals can also give you an idea of how much other workers are earning in your chosen industry to have a benchmark when negotiating your pay.

Start freelancing

Another great thing about working online in France is that many resources are available to help freelancers find their footing in the country. If you’ve already settled down here but haven’t started looking for work yet, then maybe now’s the best time to start freelancing while exploring other opportunities simultaneously. But then again, looking for a job also depends on your availability as do you plan to do this on a full-time basis, part-time, or on a project-based term?

In any case, France has many people willing to pay for your services, but to find them, you have to start by going online.


What you can be…

Even remotely, you can be a teacher, a writer, a graphic designer, an editor, a virtual assistant – anything that you can do online with a laptop and a good internet connection. The aforementioned sites also ask for comprehensive profiles so that both applicants and employers can vet and learn more about each other before filling any position.


About LinkedIn in France

LinkedIn is another helpful site for looking for online jobs in France. Companies or individuals can post work leads through this platform that they want freelancers to apply for. This site also contains valuable information about companies and jobs in France so that you know whether an opportunity will suit your skills and interests beforehand.

As mentioned earlier, it’s best to start finding online jobs in France while you’re still exploring the many possibilities the country has to offer. Take advantage of these opportunities by working for a few months before settling down in one career or company. This will also give you a general feel of what type of remote work you’d like to do in the long run.

Nonetheless, make sure to take your time to find the right online job. After all, working online means you’re not bound to one location, which is why it’s best if you take your time when looking for work so that you don’t feel burnt out after only a few weeks.
