Tel Aviv University celebrates the 30th year of the biggest annual job fair in Israel.
Although aimed at students and graduates, the job fair is open to everyone and covers all industries in the Israeli job market. If you're not a student or graduate, there are still good reasons to go, as you can see below.
Update 28/04/10: Merav from TAU just confirmed that the job fair is not only aimed at people in the Mercaz. There are already companies lined up with openings in the North and/or South. She promised to give me a complete listing of all attending companies in the week before the job fair, so look for that later.
Like in past years, dozens of companies will be searching to fill hundreds of jobs.
Companies will be organized into 4 zones by industry:
Tech Zone – jobs in hitech, biotech, engineering, etc.
Business Management Zone – positions in business, finance, accounting, etc.
Multi-disciplinary Zone – everything else in the private sector.
Non-profit Zone – jobs and volunteer opportunities with NGOs, charities and other types of non-profit organizations.
This zone layout is slightly misleading. For example, an opening for an marketing job at a tech company could be found in the Tech Zone. Plan to visit multiple zones.
You can register online (Hebrew) or at the event itself.
Entry is free. Every visitor will receive a catalog with information and a list of all the companies presenting at the job fair.
Wednesday, May 26st 2010, 10am – 6pm
The fair organizers recommend arriving no later than 5pm.
Job fairs like this are also useful for:
- Getting feedback about your resume
- Scheduling interviews
- Stocking up on free pens and candy 🙂
Also, don't forget the 35+ Job Fair Success Do’s and Don’ts.
Please share this information with any other job seekers you know of.
