She does graphic, photo editing adverts etc.

Thanks emoticon613 for your advertising idea!October 3, 2010 12:04 pm at 12:04 pm #703641
If you are looking for a secretarial job and can legally work in Israel (e.g. you have working papers or a visa with permission to work in Israel) you can apply to an English speaking company called FXCM Citibook they pay relatively decent. the link to the job is http://www.ou.org/index.php/jobs/job-hiring/74619/ You can try looking into OU’s website or janglo.net for other job opportunities. If you would like to work from home you can look into the Parameds job- from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm.
Hatzlacha with whatever you do.October 4, 2010 9:41 am at 9:41 am #703642
any other ideas?
please post if you do.October 4, 2010 10:13 am at 10:13 am #703643
R.A.: i know, i realized right after my turn at the computer was up. whoops.
i’m really looking for anything. really. that doesn’t have to do with little kids or math.
i can teach music, art, english, history, hebrew….anything (except math :)), work in an office entry-level, etc.
i’m not legal, but one can become legal if s/he has a job lined up.
horrified: i really really hope it helps. this job crisis really teaches us emunah, doesn’t it?
fghjj: that was a good idea, thanks.October 4, 2010 12:47 pm at 12:47 pm #703644
If you are in Israel on a a4? visa [joined to your husbands A2 student visa],
you CAN get a ‘permitted to work’ stamp on your visa.
this is a new development thanks to eli yishai,
if you want one just renew your visa.
i just got a new visa and i specipicaly asked for it, they gave it to me without any tzoros!
now all my wife needs is a job- any ideas, graphics etc
pleeeeze!October 22, 2010 2:55 am at 2:55 am #703645

I can do a lot of stuff from wig washing (and simple blowing) to typing (please don’t start examining my posts now)(don’t worry horrified, no graphics), to writing ….lotsa stuff!

Emoticon613, I believe in order to teach in Israel you must be licensed through Misrad HaChinuch.October 24, 2010 9:40 am at 9:40 am #703652
How about trying to get a job as a cashier in a market or store. Pay is generally around minimum wage, you may need to stand, but you can usually get a job quite easily, and the math is done automatically.October 24, 2010 11:56 am at 11:56 am #703653
mybat – can this job be done from home via computer? If so, I also may be interested.October 25, 2010 3:25 am at 3:25 am #703655
Minyangal, some part can be done from home but not completely. Sms and minyangal, do you have resumes?October 25, 2010 9:55 am at 9:55 am #703656
Mybat : If this postion can not be done entirely from home then I doubt that I would be able to apply for it as I live in Canada.Thank you anyways.October 25, 2010 11:22 am at 11:22 am #703657
my heart goes out to anyone who is struggling and I just wanted to offer some (maybe helpful) advice that has always served me well. Start locally, think about a need in your community or a community that you have connections with (anything that people need in terms of a service)and start a business offering it (depending on your experience and qualifications in case you need a license… etc. you should obtain all that you need,possibly including unpaid volunteer/intern experience to familiarize yourself with this area or to gain expertise…etc) in case you have no skills/experience in anything…)
Once you have a business idea, reach out to retired businessmen or someone you know who is in business but with whom you will not be in competition and run the idea by him (very important). There are prob. community resources of retired businessmen that can meet with you — where I lived before they had an organization like that, check into it.
Put the word out with everyone you know… especially your Rav, shul, local stores, in other words … network. Invest little and advertise in a local paper — don’t invest a lot of money right away… I’YH if it goes you can then invest whatever you need.
Most importantly: After you do your hishtadlus, daven to Ribbono Shel Olam to give you the parnassa you need so you can live like a mentsch and serve him properly…because if you are worried about parnassa it is exceedingly difficult. Say a kapittel Tehiliim before any phone call, any meeting, anything you do throughout the day. (so says Rav Shlomo Brevda shlita)
Just wanted to share what I have found to be true for myself.October 25, 2010 12:28 pm at 12:28 pm #703658
craigslist.com actually has a Jerusalem job page (not sure how to get to it) and i’ve seen some interesting things on there. I am also a graphic designer in Jerusalem, so I guess we are in competition!!!October 25, 2010 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #703659

sms: Have you checked out college options? Getting that piece of paper may be good hishtadlus toward higher pay.October 26, 2010 3:49 am at 3:49 am #703664
tomim tihye- so your sponsoring my college bill? Great!!! Seriously speaking, if I was able to go back to college, I would LOVE to be a psychologist.October 26, 2010 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #703665

sms – if you really want to return to school, then just do it! When my daughter was about 7 years old I went back to school and became a registered nurse. It wasn’t easy but it was one of the most worthwhile accomplishments of my life. During this time period I still ran my household (I must admit that my exhusband did help out quite a bit),remained active in PTA and was president of my Hadassah chapter for one year.October 27, 2010 12:05 am at 12:05 am #703667

There is an OU job site, and a National Council of Young Israel mailing list, in addition to sites like Jewish Jobs.
For those in the sciences (mainly bio), check Science Careers and Nature Jobs. Also, for chemists, check the ACS site. For physicists check Physics Today Jobs. For electrical engineers check the IEEE site.
For those in Academia, check Chronicle of Higher Education. Many universities have their own careers site, and have many regular jobs, in addition to the academic (research and teaching) positions.
There are is also a Federal Gov’t job site, USAJOBS.
For those with specialized skills, try 6FigureJobs. These are in addition to the standard places like CareerBuilder, Monster, Dice, HotJobs, and Craigslist.
