First access to the labor market in Italy means all those actions that allow young people or unemployed people to start a paid collaboration with companies, public and private bodies or as freelancers.
They can start as interns, volunteers in government programs, apprenticeship contracts, and occasional collaborations.
Less frequently it can be accessed through fixed-term contracts or (much less frequently) indefinitely.
The search for these possibilities takes place through various formal and informal channels: employment agencies, newspaper ads, personal and business networks, research on online job offers portals, social networks, companies web sites.
