The Right Direction

Post Posted: Wed Jul 06, 2005 9:36 am

Hi.

Five years ago I studied abroad in Milan and fell in love with the city, the country, the people, etc. I returned to the States to finish my degree and then started working.

A few years back considered doing a year teaching English, but decided against it for career reasons.

I recently was brought to Italy for a week with work and really felt a strong connection again.

I am seriously considering moving to Italy (preferably Venice or Milan, but am open to other cities) in January.

I need advice about where to start and what route to take.

I have started researching study abroad/ intern abroad programs. But those seem really expensive and can't guarantee internship placement.

I see that there are companies out there that will organize your move and find you a job, but that seems way out of my ballpark as far as money is concerned. Not to mention, I am in the arts (technical theatre).

Anyway, I could use anyone's advice anything.

Thank you.

 

Hopeful

Hello there,

A warm welcome to Expat Focus and apologies for the delay in responding.

I was wondering if whatever aspect of work took you to Italy recently could be a way to find work there? Would the major cities with opera and theatre venues, such as Milan, be a possible avenue for you?

Let us know how you get on, I think you should definitely try and make it happen, if your feelings for the place are that strong. I've been to a few places in Italy, though not (yet) to Venice or Milan, and it is a stunningly beautiful country with so much to offer, especially to someone with a clear interest in the arts Smile

Stay in touch and good luck!

Jo
