THE SEARCH

Some job search resources are also available in the province. For example, the temporary agencies listed in Chapter 5: Work have local offices. The geographic scope of your search is not affected by the location of the agency with which you registered.The province’s CIP - Centro per l’Impiego (Employment Center) also runs sportelli (help desks) through local comuni. These help desks provide work-related information on training courses, job opportunities, unemployment benefits and more. The sportelli in the province, however, usually only offer assistance in Italian. For help in English, visit the central CIP in Bologna that has a cultural mediator. See Chapter 5: Work for contact information.

TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

If you are looking for work teaching English, you might discover there is less competition in the province. In fact, many English speakers receive inquiries about lessons as soon as they open their mouths and reveal their foreign accents. Try placing an add for lessons on the bulletin board outside your local COOP supermarket, at your child’s school or at the gym.
