Well I was lucky enough that my job stationed me there, I’m in the Navy. However I did meet a good amount of ex-pats while I was there. Italy is a highly educated country in that almost everyone attends university. So naturally the average job requires more and more education, they get master degrees like we get bachelors to stay competitive. The easiest, and maybe the most rewarding would be the teaching exchange program. Most countries around the world take teachers (you don’t need to be a certified teacher) to introduce English as a second language. A friend of mine taught in Hungary and one of my Japanese teachers in High School was a teacher coming the other way. When I get out of the military I’m going to apply for the state department to work at overseas embassies or teach english in different countries. Here’s a site that was recommended to me:http://www.anysubject.com/jobs-in-italy-working-in-italy-find-a-job-in-italy.asp
Hope this helps and I wasn’t too long winded.
