Employment Counseling, Agencies & Careers in Israel 

Olim and returning residents are eligible to reskill or upskill via a voucher program run by the  Ministry of Aliyah Immigrant Absorption – Misrad HaKlitah.  In addition to a host of courses, personal guidance, counseling and aptitude testing is available. Assistance with resumes, interview skills and improving language improvement are also accessible. Culture-bridging workshops are also offered.

Training in a wide range of professions is offered. In a job market that gets more and more competitive every day, re-skilling or up-skilling is an amazing opportunity for Olim, that should not be missed.
