As a non-native speaker it's extremely hard to find a job in a different country, so the Student Language Bureau made the whole process a lot easier. Jennifer was incredibly helpful and I was able to quickly and easily find a job in Paris, whilst being guided along the way. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone looking for a job on their year abroad!

I have been so impressed by all the help I received from Jennifer and her team at the SLB. She took all my ideas on board to offer some great, relevant opportunities which I had been really struggling to find on my own, going above and beyond to find more direct contact details and contacting companies when I couldn’t. Her continual encouragement and advice has been invaluable when this is all a new experience - I’m so grateful for all your help, thanks again!

The Student Language Bureau is an absolute God-send! I was lucky enough to be looked after by Jennifer who couldn't have been more helpful or responsive to my needs. She offered both guidance and encouragement throughout the application process and was always on hand. I had quite a tight time scale and Jennifer made sure that I completed the application process as quickly as possible and always kept me informed. I couldn't recommend the service highly enough. Thank you so much!

I first heard about The Student Language Bureau through my university whilst on my year abroad. I was already working as a British Council Assistant but wanted to find something else post April. Having experienced a number of problems when researching internships in Paris independently, I called upon the services of Jennifer Dey and her team.
The online application is quick and easy and I received responses from The Student Language Bureau within hours. I explained my needs and my application was quickly put forward for a sales position in central Paris. Interviews can be incredibly daunting, especially when in another language but with the help of The Student Language Bureau I went into all three of my interviews feeling calmly confident. Without the support of Jennifer and her team I would not have felt so at ease. The regular feedback and communication between the company, The Student Language Bureau and myself avoided any miscommunication between interviewer and interviewee making for a smooth and enjoyable experience.
I can’t fault the services of The Student Language Bureau… not just because I’ve gained a new and exciting job role until September, but for helping me build my interview skills for the future.
