À la recherche d'un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is designed to develop students' vocabulary and cultural knowledge in preparation for working in an international environment. Exceeding the need to learn business structures and practices, most students need business communication skills, including advanced cultural competency. To meet these needs, À la recherche d'un emploi uses authentic materials from Québec and France. Communicative exercises are reality based and task oriented, encouraging a student-centered classroom. The numerous activities in the text elicit natural language use, facilitate vocabulary acquisition, and provide students ample opportunities to create relevant and personalized documents in French. In addition to completing viewing activities from feature-length films and online resources, students examine their personal goals and assess their strengths and weaknesses as they develop a job portfolio. À la recherche d'un emploi promotes learning valuable crossover skills that develop students' French-language aptitude, while also preparing them for the job market in their own country. Edition 1.1 includes a number of corrections as well as updates reflecting changes in French business culture.
"Finally, a textbook for business French that actually prepares students for the real world and today’s tough job market. Amy Hubbell’s À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context is extremely well designed and planned. The layout of the CV and cover letter activities are clear, clean, and concise and I particularly like the fact that there are comparison activities (i.e., French vs. American vs. Québécois CV) with on-target comprehension questions for reading selections. Students are certain to appreciate the practical nature of this text which is creatively presented in an up-to-date format. Amy Hubbell’s text is a welcome addition to the field." —Eileen M. Angelini, PhD, Professor of French, Fulbright Scholar, Chair of the AATF National Commission on French for Business and Economic Purposes, Department of Modern Languages, Canisius College
"Quel ouvrage stimulant et rafraîchissant. À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context, invite littéralement à la découverte du monde des affaires de la francophonie internationale. Cet ouvrage offre à tout étudiant intéressé l’occasion d’acquérir une excellente compréhension et les connaissances essentielles, pour jouer éventuellement un rôle actif dans le milieu francophone des affaires. L’approche que propose le professeur Amy Hubbell, par les thèmes traités, le contenu (vocabulaire, vidéos, exercices), mais surtout ce concept d’apprentissage innovateur (actions \ rétroactions), amènent l’étudiant ou le lecteur au-delà de la théorie, donc littéralement dans la pratique et les enjeux que représentent le milieu des affaires de la francophonie d’aujourd’hui, dans un contexte de globalisation des marchés." —Damien Ferland, Directeur, Centre du savoir sur mesure, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi
"À la recherche d’un emploi: Business French in a Communicative Context definitely fills a tremendous void in the field of business French. With a wealth of information and activities, this textbook provides students and instructors with an engaging and in-depth introduction to the major aspects of using French in a professional context. Of particular interest is the incorporation of la Francophonie and the European Union, two critical topics rarely presented in other business French textbooks. Anyone intending to seek employment in a French-speaking country or region will benefit greatly from the content and guidance that this text provides." —William Thompson, Associate Professor of French and Assistant Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, The University of Memphis
"A quick perusal of the 'Preface to the Instructor' should suffice to sell instructors on this well-conceived and much-needed textbook for the Business French course that most departments offer. The preface hits all the right notes: business communication skills; advanced cultural competency; reality-based; task-oriented; authentic video content; variety of structured assignments; case study; creation of a marketing campaign as a culminating activity; focus on France, Quebec, and other French-speaking countries. For many, the reassurance that 'the text does not assume the instructor will have special knowledge of business operations or economics' will be further enticement. A closer inspection of this textbook intended for third-year college French students confirms that the book lives up to its hype. The text follows a logical sequence succinctly laid out in a brief introduction to students setting the context for the entire book—namely that they are international students at a French-speaking university seeking a job or future career leveraging their French language and cultural skills. . . . This textbook succeeds on multiple levels, perhaps most importantly by demystifying the job process while imparting valuable knowledge for all job seekers—not just those seeking to learn Business French. The variety and thoroughness of the activities and resources provided will facilitate the instructor's job." —Mary Ellen Scullen, University of Maryland, in the French Review
