Italy undoubtedly remains to be one of the economic superpowers of the world. It still is to this day, yet the nation is beset with a lot of problems. Unemployment, for instance, persist in a lot of states in the country much to the dismay of a lot of Italians, solons and plain folks alike. While the government is trying its best to develop jobs for the people, it gets worse when putting in the fact that it is not being expedited as it should be. As it is, job generation is slower than the overall growth of the Italian population. Much of it can be blamed to the lethargic economy, which is still an ongoing debate between the two political parties in the nation.
Indeed, Italy is no longer becoming what it was a long time ago—a land of opportunity. With the overall economic and employment situation in the nation, it would be quite hard for Italians to earn for themselves and for their families. With globalization as something that is inevitable in today’s setting, a lot of Italians have found themselves looking for other prospects elsewhere: abroad.
Yes, there a lot of overseas Italians scattered all over the globe. It is estimated that they are within millions, and most of them are employed as either skilled professionals or executives of overseas-based countries. While some intend to return to Italy after fulfilling a year or two within an employment contract, some stayed longer than two or three years after signing a contract extension. Some even stayed there for good. Whether they found the most perfect job that they can’t turn down or they’ve already met their partner and settled in the country for good, there is really a lot of factors as to why Italians prefer to work overseas.
It goes without saying that one of the primary reasons for Italians preferring to work abroad is the opportunity to earn double than what they actually earn in their homeland. This is favorable to the young professionals with ambition and drive to succeed; college graduates in Italy either can’t get a job right after graduation or they get to work on jobs but are overqualified instead.
Graduates are afforded opportunities abroad because of the emerging economies in some parts of the world, like Asia, particularly in the Middle East. In the United Arab Emirates, for instance, companies operating their businesses in Dubai or Dubai are continuously searching for professionals to fill up the vacancies. Other countries like India are likewise looking for talent elsewhere, including college graduates who are considered as having high value in the job market. This is why there is a sudden development in the international food industry, especially Italian restaurant Dubai, thanks to the arrival of many foreign professionals wanting to start a new career in the Middle East.
Apart from the sole reason of employment, there are added perks to working abroad, especially for Italians. One of them is getting exposed to the culture of the place where they work, opening them to meeting with new people and learning a new language. Those who work and live as expatriates have access to a lot of services that they also get to take advantage back home. Indeed, the enticement of some Italians to the glitter of earning money and experiencing a different culture is something that they can’t miss.
If you wish to take your talents and skills in Dubai, what you should do is to look for job opportunities while you are still in Italy. This will save you time and money than going there without a clue about the current job market. Once you get a job offer, don’t forget to dine at a world-renowned Italian restaurant Dubai to taste the authentic taste of home.
