Housing in France : a Key Step to Success in your Expatriation Project

Searching for a job: Protecting your privacy on the internet is a priority

In the digital age, it’s important for job seekers to protect their privacy on the internet, even though it’s not easy to do. Indeed, social networks and search engines record a large amount of information about individuals, information that is not always intended to be made public and even less so to a potential employer. When searching for a job, it’s therefore important to check beforehand that the private data available on the internet will not hinder a potential application and that your various social network accounts are correctly set.
