if you think you could help please feel free to contact us, we rent in France and have nothing to keep us here

so immediate start for either myself or Janine would not be a problem.

more details available at request..
We both speak french with reasonable skill although this would not be needed for your area (but a useful skill

if required), and we both will be looking for classes to learn the local tongue should we find suitable


We are willing to travel (but no time wasters please)

if you require any information regarding anything on this advert please do not hesitate to contact us via

email/PM where we would gladly answer any questions you may have.

cordialements/kind regards

"we are eager to learn"

You have to realize something up front about the USA right now. You have to have a marketable skill hitting the floor. Companies don't care about you, they don't care about what potential you have, they care about how you can make them money.

They aren't looking for general skills, they want something that fits them perfectlty. They want you to say how you will help them, they don't have any interest in helping you.

Your post sounds like "please help me, I will do what I can". That's no good. There are millions of people that have no job here. Millions that need help like you. Begging for someone to find you a job isn't going to result in anything.

Find an employer and tell them what you can do for them. Just posting "please give me a job" will go no where. Again, they don't care about what you want, you need to tell them what you can give them.

Your skills seem too general and too European (not transferable to the US). Like I said, if you look like one of the crowd, you'll be one of the crowd (and unemployed).
