I am living as an anglophone in a francophone city. Technically it is bilingual but most people won’t hire you if you don’t speak fluent French.
I have been working with the government employment program to do a French integration so that I can get a good job here. I have been here five years and finding Anglophone jobs is painstaking and I have to take what I can get.
I’ve sent out more resumes and have been searching my neighborhood to find something close to my house. 18 hours ago

How I did it: It took me a really long time. After having two interviews both go wrong (I've been applying for a few years so to have two interviews seemed depressing to me...), I was kind of giving up. However, I noticed a new grocery store opening up pretty close to where I lived. I went and applied online, not expecting much like the million other applications I've sent in else where. But behold, I got an interview! I was so excited! During my interview, I remembered to try and be as friendly and as bubbly as I could... apparently it worked! I'm so happy!
