Permesso di soggiorno - cerco lavoro

Has anyone heard of the "permesso di soggiorno cerco lavoro" and could help me with applying for one?

My permit to stay and my current job contract end in May. I need to go back to the US to have a big surgery and I don't know how long it would take... might be two - six months.

I was hoping to apply for this "cerco lavoro" permit, which lasts a year, so I can come back after the surgery and search for work without having to worry about an expired permesso di soggiorno.

Problem is... besides what I have heard via word of mouth, I know nothing about it. Couldn't find anything online...

Any help with this is appreciated. Thanks!
