Hello Alyssa,

I recommend that you take a look at job offers on the STC France (Society for Technical Communication): and also the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators):­

I am currently the vice-president of the STC France chapter. We will be holding a day of workshops in September on setting yourself up as a freelancer in France and on marketing yourself. If you are new to France, this might help you sort out the different ways you could set yourself up. I have several friends who have found their salaried jobs after having been a consultant for some time.
