Hi all - hoping this is the right place to ask: I'm applying for a job at a French bank. The job announcement was in English. Should I write the cover letter in French or English? Vote now

both would be a good idea May 17, 2007

I think the bank would be impressed and appreciate it if you could do the letter in the two languagues
