About the French-American Chamber of Commerce

The French-American Chamber of Commerce (FACC) is the country's premier organization for French-American business, providing members access to educational corporate events, high-level speakers, and exceptional networking opportunities.

 

The FACC is designated by the U.S. Department of State to administer the J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program to promote mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries. The FACCs International Career Development Programs department manages this program, which allows foreign interns and trainees to come to the U.S. on the J-1 visa for paid practical training. The ICDP also manages a reciprocal outbound program for Americans to participate in training programs in France.

Client & Member Relations

 

The candidate will interface with FACC members, trainees and interns, non-members, HR representatives and other ICDP constituents on a daily basis in written, spoken and electronic communication in both English and French.
