I have mentioned in previous posts of my husband’s and my dream/desire/need to move from Italy to an English speaking country, preferably Canada. I started looking for work on behalf of my husband in February 2007, with some nibbles here and there but in the end nothing. In November I stopped completely stopped looking, taking a break. I have recently within the last week recommenced looking for a computer technician/systems analyst position for my husband in Canada. Why isn’t my husband himself looking for work? His schedule unfortunately does not permit such a “luxury”. A normal work week for him his 50-60 hours and comes home absolutely destroyed. Usually ends up being close to 60 hours, for roughly 1,500 euros a month, if that.
I am bringing this topic of wanting to move to Canada up again after finding out a fellow expat in Italy is moving back to the States after finding a position there. Yes I am part jealous but also happy she has such an opportunity to do something she enjoys. I wish her all the best and good luck! I find it encouraging in some ways and hope we are able to find work in Canada.
What does my husband do for a living? He is by trade a computer technician/systems analyst with 13 years experience, working with both Windows OS and also Macintosh. He does have the equivalent of a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. I at the moment have been teaching English as a Second Language for five years and in the States I was a Customer Service Representative with over 12 years experience. If you are located in Canada and know someone who needs an experienced Computer Technician and is willing to go through the Provincial Nominee Program, please let us know! I can then forward a copy of my husband’s resume.
