Nat Gordon

Nat Gordon is Israel's best known recruiter specializing in jobs for English speakers, having founded Marksman International Personnel in 1982.

I recently sat down with Nat in his Ramat Gan offices, and had a fun chat with him in this wide-ranging interview. With almost 68 minutes of insight in total from Nat, I decided to split this podcast into 2 parts:

  • Part 1 here mostly covers recruiting and job search for English speakers in Israel.
  • Part 2 deals more with general job search tips, and will arrive for you one week from today.

Highlights of Part 1

  • History of recruiting in Israel
  • Regulations for being a recruitment consultant in Israel
  • How Marksman grew from first being based on his mother's balcony
  • Some kinds of jobs for English speakers that are in demand in Israel today
  • A common problem many new Israeli job seekers have, and how Marksman helps deal with it
  • Why some people become “job hoppers”
  • What makes recruiting harder in today's fast-moving Internet world
  • The 4 skills that can help you get almost any job
  • Why the number of English-based jobs in Israel are growing, both for younger and older job seekers
