Italy
Job Resources
Italy's job market offers opportunities in several growing sectors and liberalization of labor laws has made employment more flexible.
Employment Trends
The country has been strongly affected by the Great Recession, and it is still struggling in its slow recovery.
Information Technology
Italy's information and communication technology market is the fourth-largest in Europe, with a particularly strong mobile phone market.
Engineering
After years of stagnation due to the economic recession, Italy’s engineering sector is showing some small signs of dynamism and growth.
Accounting and Finance
In Italy, the financial services sector is undergoing major changes in response to the recession and subsequent legislative changes.
Top Companies

Financial Considerations
While Italy is the third-largest economy in the Eurozone, it struggles with high public debt and other economic difficulties.
Work Permits/Visas
Like many other European Union countries; Italy is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement. As such, visitors will not require a visa for stays in Italy fewer than 90 days.
Resume/CVs
The average résumé/CV in Italy is two pages in length for professionals with more than three or four years of experience.
Interviewing Advice
It is helpful for the foreign jobseeker to search out a strong contact who can introduce him/her into the working and business environment of interest.
Cultural Advice
Italy is a relatively young country compared to other European nations.
Business and Networking
Personal networking, the primary means for finding a job in Italy, has historically been a difficult process for expatriates trying to find work, making networking groups essential.
General Business - Sales & Marketing
Confidence has been increasing throughout the business services industry across most of Italy.
