A few testimonials...


“The candidate board has been very useful to our company DaCast: we put a post and quickly had many qualified candidates. We consider this as a very efficient way to find a French intern for your US company.” - Stephan Roulland, DaCast


“The best $50 I have ever spent! Once I subscribed to the FACCSF I had access to many relevant job offers. It took me only two applications to find my internship in SF, while I spent months looking on the internet without any success. If I knew it before I would have subscribed earlier, I will recommend the FACC of San Francisco to many of my friends. Forget those companies asking for thousands of dollars just to find your internship, this is crazy! The FACCSF is a very serious institution and is definitely the best entry-point for a French student looking to go in California." Paul, IESEG student
