I think for non English speaking countries you must speak the local language if you applying a job especially in a touristy city like Paris. What kind of job you are looking for?. And also you need to check if your nationality is illegable for working holiday visa

You should have at least a grasp of the language before trying  to get a job.  Absolutely pointless if you can't communicate with people.

You may also need a visa.  Working as an au pair might be your best bet.

You might be able to be an interpreter for Mandarin speakers. You can translate Mandarin into English, and a bilingual French speaker can translate from English into  French. I imagine many Chinese visit Paris these days, so your Mandarin proficiency could be useful. It's worth a shot.
