Hi Kimkartavya

In order to work in France you will need a long stay visa that allows you to work. The best thing to do would be to contact your home country embassy in France to find out how to go about applying for the visa. 

Since you have already been offered a job you shouldn't have a problem.

Please see this page on Visas for France for more information.

Good luck,
