If you are hoping to relaunch your career in Europe – and especially in Italy – you might want to check out our list of professional qualifications that will be in high demand over the next 5 years. It is currently esteemed that almost 70% of the graduates in these fields will find employment in Italy in the near future. The data was released as part of public research comparing data on new graduates against the current needs of public and private companies, and the number of professionals who will be retiring in the short-medium term. In some cases, the research highlighted a significant shortage of qualified professionals in the required field, which will open the Italian job market to foreign professionals willing to move to Italy. What will be the most sought-after jobs in Italy and Europe over the coming years? Here’s the top 3.
Healthcare professionals will be in high demand
Unsurprisingly, healthcare professionals will be in high demand in Italy over the next five years. This is due partly to the ageing of the current workforce and partly to the massive restructuring that was prompted by the crisis. After over a decade of the job market failing to absorb all the graduates the country was producing, the tables seem to be about to turn. Doctors, nurses, and careworkers will be among the most sought-after professionals in Italy with almost 200.000 new positions opening up over the next four years alone. It is worth noting that all of these professions require a degree in Italy – whereas in some European countries nurses and careworkers only have to undergo a relatively short period of training.
Graduates with degrees in Engineering and Economics will find plenty of jobs
Over the past decade, Italy has produced more graduates with degrees in Humanities than its market could absorb, whereas Engineering and Economics degrees have been dwindling. The demand is now higher than ever for these particular stem fields, so much so that the research doesn’t even distinguish between the different branches of Engineering, simply acknowledging that approximately 140k positions will open in this field. The same goes for Economics: Italy has been experiencing a shortage of financial analysts and managers.
The tourism industry will be growing
Despite the Corona-crisis, the Italian tourism industry will be growing over the next 5 years. According to the latest projections, almost 80k new jobs will be created in this field, with openings spanning from highly-specialised jobs for managers and IT professionals to a variety of options in the hospitality branch and the marketing sub-segment of this industry. Language and IT skills will be essentials to those hoping to make their career in this department
