    Yes, if you achieve a good level of Italian it will be quite easy for you to get a job since many local companies are constantly looking for people with good skills in speaking and writing Italian (level C1).
    Our experience shows that our former students, with a C1 level, found interesting jobs related to Italian (translator, teacher of Italian, employee in multinational companies dealing with their Italian branches).
