Breaking into the Israeli Job market
It is "great" to be an Anglo these days looking for a job in Israel. You have the skills, command of English, American or international business development and marketing, and understanding of the American, English, Australian, etc. culture, which are complementary to so much of the Israeli economic boom. Many companies need you as part of their teams. You have a lot to offer. However, it is important to understand the Israeli professional culture to crack the Israeli market. This is a very small country - everybody knows everybody and usually personal contact is essential in landing the job. It is important to get into the Israeli mindset to be able to get your foot into the door.
For this reason, JBNF is inviting three top experts for job searching as our guest speakers:
Jacob Share, founder of JobMob Jacob Richman, Computers Jobs in Israel Rachel Berger, Director for Employment, at Nefesh b'Nefesh Each have played a crucial role in helping myriads of Anglos getting jobs in Israel, to give their best possible advice to job seekers.
While they will not make you into Israelis, they will impart more than enough practical information that will make a difference for you. We also hope to hear from their latest success stories directly.
The founder of Paris, France-based Share Select Media, Jacob Share is best known as the job search expert who created the award-winning JobMob at http://jobmob.co.il/ , one of the top job search blogs in the world and one of the largest blogs in Israel of any kind.
“ My career includes past jobs in Canada, France, the United States and Israel. As someone who has undertaken job searches many times both as a candidate and as a hiring manager, the idea for JobMob came about when I realized that I was having more job search success than other job seekers and a blog seemed the best way to share this knowledge.”
Launched in 2007, JobMob is filled with straight-talking advice based on real world experience and lots of humor thrown in. In less than 5 years, JobMob has been viewed over 7.5 million times as it continues to grow.
Jacob and JobMob have appeared on the websites of The New York Times, CNNMoney, The Jerusalem Post, Sports Illustrated, The Globe and Mail, The Huffington Post, FHM, The Guardian, and more.
