Immigrating and working in France

10 years ago
Hi all,

I am looking for work in France as a software engineer (been doing it for 30 years now). My girlfriend (who is French) is moving back in a few weeks and the plan is for me to join her asap. I have been looking into the "auto-entrepreneurs" concept if I cannot find anyone ready to hire me.

I was wondering if any of you fine folks would have any advice, thoughts, ideas, experiences to share... , job would be nice to :)

BTW, I have dual Canadian and American citizenship, very fluent in both French and English

Have a great day,
Eric
