This post is mostly for those of you already in Europe. I'm graduating with a BS in Human-Computer Interaction and a BA in Int'l Relations soon, and I'm really interested in just working in Europe for a little bit as a UX/Ix Designer. I have 1-2 years of design experience.
So those of you US citizens working in Europe right now, how did you end up there? How was the visa process?
I'm looking for resources on first finding a UX-related job abroad, and then information on how to do the entire legal process.
I have published an article entitled "Interaction design in France: an overview" taken from a speech I'll give tomorrow in Paris for Cumulus Digital Culture workshops. I wanted to share those thoughts with the IxD community and start a discussion about what is your perception of French interaction design. Please don't hesitate to give us some feedbacks.

I guess today's my day to open my trap on IxDA, which I haven't done in ages (*waving hello to everyone*)
So, question of the day: what can you guys tell me about the state of our field in France?
Back story: In my years in this community and on this list, I've met designers from many other countries, but never from France. And now I've got a new job building a design organization in a largely French software company.
