It’s a nice idea to try to help olim get jobs in Israel – something that is very difficult, particularly for those not seeking an entry level position, or for those who don’t want to work in telesales/the adult industry/ technical writing.

But how exactly does this site help? The olim who need help are professional people – we already know about resumes, interview techniques and “CV mistakes”. The problem does not lie with these. The problem lies with the simple fact that it is very hard indeed for professional olim to find work that is suitable for their experience and qualifications. Making a “great resume” and sending it to a crappy job working overnight shifts selling for IDT Global is not solving the problem.

Let’s get together and solve the real problem, not patronise ourselves with elevator speeches and CV writing tips.

Hi Lily,
Thanks for coming by, you raise a good question and a good point- my message isn’t clear enough 🙂

JobMob is a site for helping anyone find work in Israel: olim, potential olim, sabras, expatriates, Jew or non-Jew, etc…. whoever needs work, I’d like us to help them find it.

JobMob is only a blog for now, but a blog is a terrific way to start a conversation as we grow the JobMob Community. That said, I have too many ideas to just blog and I know that the rest of the JobMob Community will have more. Talk needs to lead to action, and that’s why the plan is to introduce features that will really make it easier to look for work in Israel. More on that later.

One point where I disagree with you- the people who are making aliya are not only professionals, there are people of all stripes. I have seen this many times over and Chaim Fox-Emmett says the same thing in describing Israemploy’s users:

A new wonderful avenue for olim and English speakers in Israel is the recent upsurge in “outsourcing”. Many companies abroad are looking for workers here in Israel, whether for ideological reasons or because of simple profitability considerations (lower salary pay).

I advise professional (and non-professional) olim to try and search the USA communities, or look for some of those new “intermediary” businesses opening up (which link up workers with companies abroad) through Janglo or such.

Personally, I am a graphics designer and nearly all of my clients are based in the USA. They pay a “high” salary by Israeli standards, while on their side – they get much more for their money than they would in the States.

Hatzlacha to all of us.

Deena, you scooped me. This was something I was going to blog about later 🙂

You’re absolutely right- in the Internet Age, people have more opportunities than ever to live the good life wherever they choose, especially if they are olim and are familiar with other countries where pay is higher. I know there are many French olim who make aliya but keep their French clients. For years the Israeli government has been trying to figure out how to increase the number of Western olim and the answer is now clear.

There is a flipside to all this. I read in one of the main Israeli papers a little while back that in precisely your domain of graphic design, Israeli companies are starting to feel the crunch because they can’t compete with the American salary that you’re making, and more and more Israelis – sabras included – are starting to follow this trend.

I hear what you’re saying. However, there CAN be a way to get the best of both worlds. Let’s use my business as an example -since that’s what we started with. While it’s true that most of my clients are American, I do have many Israeli clients too. I charge the same price for both.

Now, my office by now is considered a very professional one, so Israeli companies are willing to pay my prices – which are “normal” market prices for professional graphics.

American companies, at the same time, pay the same price as Israeli companies. True, it’s their gain, as they’re paying the same price they’d pay in the USA for standard graphics, and are getting so much more for their money. But they’re not paying more than their fellow clients here in Israel. They’re just getting more for their money.

Not everyone will agree with me – some may claim that it is okay to charge more when the company is willing to pay more. I am fine with my prices, I have my set prices based on what’s good for me, and I don’t start calculating if the company could or should pay more.

I believe proper “outsourcing” – if we also care about economy in our country here, is to charge a nice but “normal” price, and let the American companies gain instead of having the Israeli companies lose, as you wrote.. We can increase clientelle in that way, since they will be paying so much less than they otherwise would in their home countries.
