The Work is never done...
Having done some recent research, I stumbled upon some guides about finding work in France. The number one ingredient to success in looking for a job in France (besides luck) is perseverance.
Most online or paper resources tell you that you need to offer something to the French market - you certainly need to speak French but also KNOW France and French culture and have a special skill. This is a highly demanded market so you need that thing that makes you stand out. And luck.
The site WorkinFrance.com talks a lot about new laws opening France/EU to non-nationals in an attempt at a new brain drain. They say that it is easier right now than it was a few years ago.
Know yourself, know the market, know the culture, and persevere.
