Did you ever receive a monthly pay supplement just for coming to work on time? That's just one of the strange ways that public sector employees get extra pay in Israel.
To mark the launch of Dan Schawbel's terrific Me 2.0 book about personal branding, it's a good time to also mention some of the other job search projects that JobMob contributors have created for you recently.

The questions cover ageism, maternity leave, severance pay and overtime for part-timers. The answers are the result of followups to the JobMob Pro Chat with Israeli Payroll Specialist Moshe Egel-Tal.

Ageism Bena asks: I was wondering whether it is illegal for prospective employers (or employment agencies) to ask your age even before they interview you or even consider you for a prospective position with a company. I have had numerous situations where my qualifications are clearly listed on my C.V., including years I graduated undergrad and grad school and still the prospective employer or head hunter here will ask me my age claiming that it is relevant to my level of experience. When I refuse to give it they basically do not contact me again. How legal is it to ask that question?
The idea behind JobMob Pro Chats is simple: bring industry experts to you in a setting where you can get answers to your questions right away.
