Interview in Italian

Nowadays, job opportunities, and therefore job interviews, are getting harder to achieve: either you work to get one or you are lucky enough to receive  job offers. If you are looking for an occupation in Milan, you shall learn the basic words for a job interview, or at least know them, to maximize your chances to get hired.

Tips of the day

The first thing to do when you get a job interview is to make a thorough research about the company you’re going to have an interview with. Secondly, prepare your answers to possible questions, such as “tell me about yourself, and why you are the perfect candidate for this role”. Therefore, you must learn how to do an excellent “Presentazione”, a self-introduction that could impress your interviewers.

With L’Italiano A Portata Di Mano, you could also mock an interview, so that you can practice and get corrected by the teacher. 

Whatever your project is, a high professional job in Italy after finishing your studies or odd jobs to support your stay in Milan, you need to hold interviews for a job: talk about you and your competences, your working experiences, tell which your strengths and your weaknesses are. In other words: you have to be able to communicate. 

“Colloquio”, “presentazione”, “titolo di studio”, “carriera”, “azienda”, “posizione” “risorse umane” “esperienza professionale”, “approccio”…  are only some of the crucial words you need to know for an interview and your success. It’s about you and your life and these are some of the words which mark the way you’ll follow in the coming years.

Which level of our Italian courses suits you best?

  • Have you been in Milan for a while, and you enjoyed it so much to look for a job? 

If you’ve decided to experience working in Milan because you like to stay here and you need to improve your language competence, both oral and written, I do suggest you reach an intermediate-advanced level so you can prepare and easily hold interviews and have the chance to get a good job.  

  • Is your Italian language competence at least at a threshold level?

This is the minimum language competence level I can suggest you before starting your job research. Then, make sure the job post you’d like to respond to doesn’t require any Italian certification. Ask yourself: am I able to hold an interview in Italian? Do I need an Italian course?

As you can see, learning Italian is the key to a successful interview. And learning Italian means attending a course where you study the language and live the culture. 

Have you ever thought to attend an experiential Italian course? You can learn Italian more easily and quickly; on top of that, you can talk with locals and make new experiences. So prepare yourself to have fun while making mistakes because your Italian journey is waiting!

Ciao, nice to meet you! My name is Maria Pagano and I’m passionate about languages. I’ve studied Modern Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Catania. I’m a teacher of Italian L2 and I got the second level DITALS certification issued by the University for Foreigners of Siena. I’ve taught and still teach Italian language to foreign students, as a volunteer in schools, like Penny Wirton and Mamme A Scuola ONLUS where Italian language is taught for free. My mission is to teach the Italian language to let students discover and live the Italian culture through direct contacts with people and in different context from the classroom, in order to satisfy the needs, the wishes and the curiosities of people who want to know Italy and its features. Learning the language and live the culture. How? With an experiential course which alternates lessons in classroom with practice outside the classroom, all over the city. At the end of this journey Milan will have no secrets for you. And neither will the Italian language. During my academic course (and after it as well) I’ve had the opportunity to study foreign languages and I’ve experienced and lived the impact with foreign cultures in foreign countries. I know what happens when you “go out of the school” and face the world around you. These experiences have turned into moments of reflection which led me to think about a different way of teaching and learning a foreign language: an EXPERIENTIAL COURSE.
