Hosts Sara, Jessica and Michelle take your questions and give you answers about interviewing in Italy, finding the perfect house in Italy, the different Italian visas and more!
Your Questions: Our Answers
1. Emma: Do you have any advice for sending resumes and cover letters to companies, if you think it is better to call first or just email, and if how interviews are?
2. Ryan: Basically I want to move to Italy for no more than 3 months, I missed the chance to study abroad in school and I’ve always wanted to travel to Italy for more than a vacation experience. My questions are:
- I need a temporary job to support myself while I’m there for 2-3 months. In terms of paperwork, what do I need if I’m only staying for that short of time. Just a simple work visa? Any other paperwork relating to just being there?
- In terms of temporary housing, what do you recommend? The cheaper the better, I’m not too concerned with living lavishly or anything like that, I just need simple amenities. I will be trying to stay in a city environment, most likely Roma.
3. Lisa: My mother was born in Italy. Would you recommend that I apply for an Italian work visa or dual citizenship?
4. Lisa, take 2 : I am a teacher, and would love to teach English in Italy for the summer (two months). Would it be possible to teach for this short period of time?
6. April: As someone who has never lived in another country, what should I prepare myself for being the most difficult to adjust to. In other words, what did you find tough when you first moved that you were not expecting?
