Hi, first of all, are you Submitted by Gala Placidia on Tue, 06/03/2014 - 04:12 In reply to A newbie all over again! by Annec Hi, first of all, are you entitled to work in Italy (EU passport, work permit, etc?). Second, with high unemployment and very few jobs available, your chances are slim. If you have family in Italy, ask them for their advice. Good luck!

As long as you are not depending on working to survive here, then you might be lucky. But the work situation here in Italy is not good.

As long as you by stevegwmonkseaton Hi Steve,Luckily I do not have to work to survive.... But just thought it would be an experience to spend some time in an enviroment where I could converse and learn the language but also meet people.Can I ask? Where are you and what do you do in Italy? Log in or register to post comments Hi Sonia, we too live in Submitted by stevegwmonkseaton on Wed, 06/04/2014 - 06:28 In reply to Hi Steve, by Sonia Equizi Hi Sonia, we too live in Abruzzo, but not L'Aquilla. Afraid we have never worked here, so have no real experience of doing so, but we know many that have/do and have seen theplaces closing down here over recent years. Things do seem to have turned the corner slightly, but it is still not good. Skills here will go a long way to help and especially unique skills, but I don't think speaking English would be enough without very good Italian as well. However if you are not dependant on the money you could perhaps help out formally or otherwise. Of course it would be nice to sort something out immediately, but I would suggest that once you are over here it will be easier. Different post I know, but I would post approximately when you intend to come over and what type of accomodation you prefer (apart from cheap of course); village, town, flat house, with or without land etc... It may be that out of season there are opportunties to rent cheaper, but then again L'Aquiila can get mighty cold in winter. Sure you will, but finally, always have plan "B" , "C".... :) Log in or register to post comments Did you ever think of Submitted by Rebecca Gallerizzo on Thu, 06/05/2014 - 11:58 In reply to A newbie all over again! by Annec Did you ever think of volunterring?

Every bit helps.

Log in or register to post comments Hi Sonia, not sure whether Submitted by Ita Dee on Wed, 01/06/2016 - 10:16 In reply to A newbie all over again! by Annec Hi Sonia, not sure whether you made it to Italy as the last post was dated some time ago, however in regards to working and speaking English. I spent some time in Italy during my month stay I travel to various places North and South and I never came across a language barrier. If so I would suggest staying in a tourist area. The more rural areas you will find less english speaking natives. I'll also add, Im a Distributor for a Global company called "itWorks" and just this week they announced we will be moving into Italy.. Our products are awesome.. if you are looking for work and not sure how getting into Italy's main stream you may want to get out our company. All my info is in my Bio.. Happy Travels !!
