In Italy, the labor market is certainly not at the level of the northern European countries, because the unemployment rate is currently about 8%, while youth unemployment is 24%. So it is the young people who have the most problems finding work in Italy. Proof of this is that the majority of the 50,000 Italians who will leave Italy in 2021 to emigrate to another country, mainly in Europe: the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain and the Netherlands, are mostly young people,
Although it may seem strange, most emigrants come from the northern regions of Italy.
It may seem strange, but in certain sectors it can be harder for the highly skilled to find work. In fact, in 2021, one out of three Italian immigrants has at least a college degree. Compared to previous years, the number of college graduates emigrating is steadily increasing.
However, it must be said that there is a labor shortage especially in certain sectors: construction, agriculture, hospitality, tourism, logistics, transport, trade, etc.
To search for work in Italy in these sectors, I recommend some websites:
