Tips for finding a student job in Grenoble
This might be a bit of a disappointment, but you're going to need a CV and a cover letter. Yep, finding a job takes hard work! The first thing we'd recommend is to focus your job search by narrowing it down a little: what kind of job are you willing to do, or not? Do you have a salary in mind? Preferences on your working hours?
Don't be afraid to get out there and meet people at different companies. Handing over your CV in the hope of getting a job when one isn't advertised is often appreciated and shows your motivation. Consider temporary jobs too: you'll save time, be more independent and have more flexibility!
