yeah we tried that. Its Nefesh Benefesh. but thanks anyways.September 1, 2009 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #661235yossi z.Member
do you have family there that could point you in the right direction?September 1, 2009 11:33 pm at 11:33 pm #661236
Are you there already or planning to move there? Try the Janglo site as well and there are some FB groups but I think they are a waste and are run by a couple of opportunists offering low yield, high quota, high turnover sales jobs to freiers..I mean new olim.September 1, 2009 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #661237mi keamcha yisroelMember
a600kilobear: be on a positive attitude not negativeSeptember 2, 2009 12:28 am at 12:28 am #661238yossi z.Member
i would ask what part of the country and see if i/my family could help you out but that would be prying (if i understand the CR rules correctly) but i really feel for you
so sorry 🙁

there are many online job sites. what kind of work are you looking for? There’s a website called Israjobs-they charge a small fee but have many jobs published.September 2, 2009 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #661240
mi keamcha yisroel – I have been busting frauds and stalkers for years now. I know ’em when I see ’em. These hustlers are basically using new olim and throwing them away like used Kleenex when they are done with them. I also know that moving to EY is not an easy or necessarily good decision.
I was turned off when legitimate business assistance groups refused to so much give me the time of day when they found out I am “charedi” and want to set up a business that would aid the “charedi” sector. Unless you can stay out of the web of the medine and its institutions, you are best off not moving there as you will get swallowed up and disillusioned very fast.
And don’t anyone mention the meraglim to me because EY is now occupied by an illegitimate force and Moshiach is not here. The meraglim referred to the time of our first geula, not to a time when a group of baryoinim and Sicarii decided to seize power in EY and build a state based on koichi veoitzem yadi.
Finally, do NOT believe the positive economic statistics coming out of EY. Anyone I speak to is schlepping by at best and drowning at worst. Those statistics are skewed and in fact the strong shekel that the deluded medine brags about will be its downfall.
The global recession will pass, and so will Obama but the medine, an abomination that defiles the kedusha of EY, will never be anything but a bastion of mediocrity UNLESS it has the guts to show some real gaon Yaakov. That can come only with Moshiach, and in the meantime the medine is the epitome of golus.September 3, 2009 8:27 am at 8:27 am #661242ZachKessinMember
If you have skills and are willing to work there are jobs out there, there are of course a lot of people looking so its not the easiest time to find one, but no one every said it was easy. Persistence will pay off!
Nefesh B’ Nefesh and the AACI have very good job boards. Israemploy is also very good but you have to pay a few shekels (I think 25nis/month). If you are in a computer field check out Jacob Richman’s CJI (Computer Jobs in Israel) which is a newsletter that comes out every week or two.
You can also try sending feelers to Janglo and TAAnglo.
And if you know Java well send me an email, we are looking for a programmer in Petach Tikva. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If I can be any more help please feel free to email me, Its always a privilege to help someone get working.September 3, 2009 11:15 am at 11:15 am #661243EttieMember
A600KiloBear- I’m sorry that you seemed to have been burnt from your Israel experience.
I have found that if someone is looking for a legitimate job there are plenty of opportunities! Nobody says that moving to E”Y is easy but the opposite. The economic situation will never reach a high level- most people manage if they take a reality check and give up expectations to make an American salary in Israel. I don’t have first hand experience but I have doubts that those who live in Israel but have spouses to work in America are truly happy with the higher financial standard of living they are providing their families with.
If a person(family) chooses to live in E”Y it must be a choice of giving up the gashmiyos of CHU”L for yes all of the benefits of living in Eretz Yisroel.September 3, 2009 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #661244
Those benefits are taken away by the ugliness of dealing with the medine. Nowhere do I feel the pain of golus more than in EY, where the medine and secular society try so hard to take all of the kedushas ha’aretz away and turn Yidden into goyim (and bring goyim over to tighten their hold on society).September 3, 2009 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #661245
CJI will soon become Computer Jobs in India so do not count on a career in anything related to computers in EY unless you are a top specialist who can in fact run a team that could well be based in India, China or the former Communist world. Thanks to the strong shekel EY will price itself out of the market soon especially with taxes as they are.
An old friend of mine has been out of work in the computer field for 18 months now and has basically returned to the Former Soviet Union for employment. He has been in EY for 17 years.September 3, 2009 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #661246starwolfMember
It is quite possible to live a good life in Medinat Yisrael; but of course if one expects to see only bad, this is what one will see.
Jobs are somewhat tight right now (just as everywhere else), but they can be found, depending on one’s field. NBN and AACI do have excellent bulletin boards.
Quite a few Anglos lead good lives here, and you can’t beat the price of the Jewish schooling.October 5, 2009 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #661249haifagirlParticipant
There are jobs to be had that can be done via the internet from anywhere in the world. Try finding one of those.
