The Orthodox Union is throwing its first major job fair in Israel in almost 4 years.
Share or forward this announcement to anyone you think that might want to attend.
UPDATE: the date and time of the fair were originally Monday, October 15th, but that's now changed.
UPDATE Oct.6th: I've now added a list of companies that will be at the fair.
The 2008 Orthodox Union job fair in Jerusalem was aimed at new immigrants (olim chadashim) only, although, having been there, I can tell you that the olim weren't the only ones there.
Thankfully, this time around, the fair will be open to all Israeli job seekers.
(And if you're an Israeli employer looking to hire, sign up here for a free table at the fair.)
According to an official mailing to employers about the event, the fair will be organized by “The OU Job Board in conjunction with the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Jerusalem Municipality and its Employment and Immigration Center, Mati, Council of Immigrant Association of Israel, Nefesh B'Nefesh, The Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel (AACI) and more.”
JobMob will have a table at the fair. That's right, I'll be at the fair. Come by to ask a job search question, suggest a topic for an upcoming JobMob article, or just to practice your elevator pitch and say hi.
Companies that will be at the fair:
- Aboulafia Avital & Co.
- FXCM at CityBook
- ILAN ISRAEL HOMENET
- Israel Business Brokers
- Israel Business Connection
- Katz & Cohen Law Offices
- Marksman Personnel Ltd.
- Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd.
- Touro College in Israel
If the list gets updated again, I'll mention it on the JobMob facebook page.
