Gvahim/IGTCloud: Looking for employees - Looking for jobs Meetup

Dear all,

We are at the weekend before the SaaS job event and I am happy to announce that the participation level of both those seeking employment and those seeking to employ is above expectations. Since we want this to move smoothly and effectively for everyone, I kindly request the job seekers to adhere to the following:

1.  Please do your homework - The event is focused around SaaS. SaaS is a new and unique market and must be approached as so. These companies are changing the way hi-tech has been deployed until now, by removing the physical service at the customer and putting it on a cloud. The results have quickly changed all the rules of hi-tech allowing more proliferation of services that were unattainable because of the high cost of entry. They are looking for employees that are thinking in modern terms and using innovative and the most up to date tools. “Thinking out of the box” is too overused and old fashion. You need be thinking with the largest peripheral view possible while providing maximum value and productivity.

2.  Study the companies – Please do your homework and look at the web sites of the companies participating: MyHeritage, WIX, SiSense, Gigaspaces, PayPal, Pontis, Kampyle, Daynix, Liveperson, Panaya, Stratoscale, Jfog and Trainologic. This is a very impressive group.

3.  Bring hardcopy resumes – I recommend about 20 copies and make sure it is focused around what you can offer to SaaS market and not a generic one.

4.  Elevator pitch – Please come with a ready 2-3 minute speech about who you are, what you are looking for and what you can offer. When I was younger, companies would hire people. In this market, companies are hiring positions. I am not saying companies do not focus or care about the people they hire. However, you must over emphasize what value you will bring to the company and to that position.

5.  Please be considerate – because we are expecting many to participate, please be brief when at the company’s station to allow everyone equal access. We are doing our best to prevent long lines.

6.  Networking – This is an excellent time to network with people in the field so please utilize it. I once again ask the Israelis form IGTCloud to be speak with new Olim from Gvahim and be positive and supportive and share your experience on what it is to look for a job in Israel.

Shabat Shalom and the best of luck to you all.

      Hello Shay. My profile is same as yours. I found it very difficult these days to find employer who has requirement of an IT guy with multi domain/technology knowledge. It is kind of disappointing.

    Interesting meetup. I believe this job meetup is only for Israel citizens/Passport holders. Pls correct me if I am wrong. Thank you.

      From a minister of interior point of view , as long as you have a certain type of visa , you can work in Israel as long as it's not a government/defense related position .

      Moshe Kruger Linkedin didn't/ don't like the way I spell my name with French and Swedish acute accents. Live and learn. will be back on Linkedin hopefully soon ( reinstated). Love the look at the "ticket history" by logging into your Linkedin account while suspended.

  • Stephen D.

    Fayce Guessous I know you are living the experience ( nightmare) of a non Jew working in Israel but your facts are incorrect.With some boutique exceptions , you need to have an Israeli ID number to work in Israel. A Permanent Reside Work Visa ( there are a number) normal specifically excludes the right to work in Zion which is why the Start Up Nation Critical Canvas is spending a buuck and lots of time to change the Basic Law of Work ( thats what Socialist Zion called it in 1949). This law is the very pillars of the Right of Return that excludes the Non+Jewish Diaspora from Immigrating to Zion.

      There re indeed very few work permits that can be delivered to a foreigner ,however there will be a need for tons of bureaucratic work . As for my situation , i already a$$ kicked the ministry of interior using their own rules but thanks for your concern :)

    Remuneration is obviously not really an issue. I am looking for a full time position where I can become totally dedicated. I equally have no intention of retiring at 67 in 25 years time. Retirement killed both my parents.

    Throughout my career I have delivered on time , in the budget and very much more than expected.. Stephen Darori

    If any company is looking to fill a "senior position" . I am tagging myself into the White Silicon City and Silicon Boulevard Job Marketing.

    My Linkedin profile can be intimidating and perhaps a bit confusing. I wear many caps and quite a few voluntary ones. I have now set up a quick exit from everything what I have been doing for over 5 years to return permanently to a position in the Mercaz with 125 % dedication. The reason is the endless traveling I have to do as part of what I have been doing 3XC Global Partners. 3-8 trips monthly out of Israel or London have become excessive.

  • Stephen D.

    My advice to anyone with a Jewish partner ( but isn't oene himself/ herself) is if you are hmm her/ him then damn it marry him/her /it in a Civil Contract of Union with really easy exit options that don't actually require the Court to sanction. The contract will get you at the Interior Ministry a right to work in Zion and maybe even an Israeli ID. Ministry of Interior ( Misrad Hapinim is a silly billy and frustratingly inconsistent . If a non Jew comes married to a Jew to Zion , no issue to get an Israeli ID. If you start the process in Zion. OY Vey it takes 5 years of tears and frustration. There are Boutique work a rounds ( Cyprus and Central America ) but they cost a fortune .
