How would you go about getting an embassy job in Europe?

In college I'm planning on taking German, French, and Italian, and I want to get a job and live in any countries that speak those, like: Switzerland Germany France Italy Luxembourg Austria etc. I'm wondering what other classes I should take in college and how hard it would be to get a job in those countries.
