Finding a job is one of the biggest challenges of your Aliyah. Knowing English does help but it is not a 'winning ticket'. Today the market is extremely competitive. The Coronavirus has plunged many into unemployment, business have shut down and raising capital for startups is challenging. Together with this we must emphasize the importance of learning Hebrew and continually improving your communication skills. When you can communicate with co-workers and potential clients, you improve your marketability. A software developer would never apply for a job without programming skills and a doctor must know the language of medicine. Similarly, Mastering the Hebrew language is one employment skill you must acquire. Take note of the employment information we are sharing with you. Veteran olim (vatikim), with years of experience have contributed the information in this sections of the website so that employment success can be in your reach.
