Job Search Resources & Advices

Italy's unemployment rate is quite high and many Italians and expatriates are employed illegally and paid under the table. If you are thinking to relocate in the summer mind that Italians go on vacation during the month of August making it difficult to schedule meetings. It's possible to find a job in Italy on the Internet, but traditional forms of recruiting, such as personal networking, newspaper ads and trade union assistance are still more common. Personal networking is the Italians' preferred method of finding a job. Job advertisements can also be found in both the print and Web versions of many Italian newspapers. A number of websites listed in this page offer free job databases and the ability to submit a curriculum vitae to potential employers. Some of these sites also provide direct links to company recruiting offices and information on job issues. Government-sponsored employment offices have websites, too, including Ergonline, which is run by the Ministry of Labor and the Agenzie Regionali Lavoro, which provides region-specific job listings. Temporary employment is a new concept in Italy and one out of three temporary workers are expects  to become permanently employed. Italian salaries are established by the state and codified based on the category into which the worker falls. In entry-level positions, most employees earn minimum wage, and payday usually comes once a month. Employers in Italy pay all social security benefits and bonuses, and workers in Italy earn 13 months of salary each year, paid sick days, free health care, and job security protected by labor laws. The Italian work week is 40 hours long. The regular work week should not exceed six days, and a work day shouldn't last more than eight hours. Workers receive at least four weeks of paid vacation, with many getting up to six weeks off.


Contracts in Italy

There are several contracts available for employees in Italy.

Contratto a tempo indeterminato (permanent contract). These contracts are like gold. You are fully protected under Italian law.
Contratto a tempo determinato (fixed-term contract). The contract may not renewed, but you retain your benefits.
Contratto a progetto (working for a project). The contract can be renewed. Your employer is not entitled to provide sick, maternity, or holiday pay.
Job Sharing. Your contract is shared with another person. You have more flexibility.
Job on Call. You are paid a retainer fee during the period in which you don’t work. When you are called to work, you receive full wages.
Staff Leasing. Companies that do not need their staff at all times may hire them out to other companies. If this happens to you, you effectively become an employee in the new company.

Interviewing Advices

Before the interview, research the company-its history, present focus, problems and future direction, and then review your own skills and experience. Prepare a few questions in advance. Practice your Italian. Italians prefer to do business in their own language. Efforts on your part will be appreciated, even if you are not fluent. On the day of the interview, dress conservatively. Italians are very conscious of how they dress and work to present a good image. For men this means a dark, well- tailored suit and a tie; for women, fashionable suits or dresses. Interviews normally begin with introductions, firm handshakes all around, the exchange of business cards or calling cards and a few minutes of informal conversation. Italians are warm, friendly, physical, and given to hand gestures, non-verbal communication is extremely important in Italy, it is necessary to make eye contact and have a firm handshake. People who do not make eye contact are considered to be hiding something. Italians have little or no concept of personal space. Being in close proximity with someone is considered a sign of affection or camaraderie.With these concepts in mind, when making presentations in Italy, remember that your materials must look attractive: binders, overheads projections, brochures, and the like must all be stylish and inviting. They also respect age and position, so use appropriate titles. During the meeting, allow the interviewer to direct the conversation. When questioned, give a complete response, and cite examples of how you handled specific problems. Be alert and interested, and ask questions about the position and its responsibilities. Do not raise the issue of salary early in the interview. However, if you are asked about your current salary, respond directly and honestly.
