International Organizations
International organizations are another great source of jobs for which language skills are helpful. This is especially true for French speakers, because French is one of the most common working languages in international organizations.

There are thousands of international organizations, but they all fall into three main categories:
  1. Governmental, e.g., the United Nations
  2. Non-governmental (NGOs), such as Action Carbone
  3. Nonprofit charitable, like the International Red Cross
As you can see even from these few examples, the sheer number and variety of international organizations offer you thousands of career choices. To get started, think about what kinds of organizations you might like to work with, based on your skills and interests.

There are far too many international organizations for me to even attempt making a list, so follow these links for information that will help you in your job search.
