The Generous December group writing project is taking time out to recognize notable charities, social causes or otherwise helpful organizations. When it comes to finding jobs in Israel in 2007, the non-profit champion is Israemploy.
What is Israemploy?
Chaim Fox-Emmett founded the Israemploy charity in 2002 as a mailing list of Israeli job listings in English. In March 2006 after a year in development, his team replaced the mailing list with Israemploy.net and its many services for job seekers, employers, charities and other organizations with recruiting needs.
How does Israemploy find you work?
Any job seeker can use the Israemploy search engine to find listings, but only paid members – donors to the charity – can view the full job descriptions and contact information during the initial 7-10 days after a position was posted on the site.
A nice touch for registered users of the website (free or paid) is that you can subscribe to the RSS feed for the results of any customized search so that you can follow personalized additions to the Israemploy job database via your favorite feed reader. If your inbox still has room you might prefer email alerts instead, and you can do that too.
Why do I like Israemploy?
- Most of the staff are volunteers and work for Israemploy from around the globe, not just in Israel
- Israemploy.net is very practical and easy to use while catering to both English and Hebrew speakers
- Since Israemploy is a charity, your membership dues are deductible from your income taxes while selflessly paying for Israemploy to continue helping other people find jobs too. It's win-win.
