Italy: unemployment rate 2008-2017 According to figures released by Banca d’Italia, the unemployment rate in Italy decreased from 12.7 percent in 2014 to 11.2 percent as of 2017. Despite the strong financial crisis of 2008 and tough reforms in the labor market, the country is reacting positively compared to the 2008-2012 period.  
 Lack of trust

    The Italian labor market does not inspire young people to look for work after they have graduated.  As reported by Istituto Demopolis, 61 percent of the respondents reported that to find a job what really matters are personal and familiar contacts while only 53 percent stated skills.

The European dream

  The possibility to move freely in the Schengen area is a real help in finding a job. France, Spain, Germany and other countries may offer interesting job opportunities for Italian job seekers. A survey by Euromedia Research shows that the willingness to relocatewithin Europe reached 24 percent while only 10.4 percent of the respondents reported that they do not know if they want to relocate.
