Nefesh B’Nefesh and the Jewish Agency for Israel will hold weeklong job fairs
for would-be olim at four locations in North America starting Sunday. The events
in New York, Miami, Baltimore and Toronto will highlight the opportunities
Israel has to offer to new immigrants.
“Finding a job in Israel is one of
the key factors for a successful transition into life in Israel,” Nefesh
B’Nefesh director of employment Rachel Berger said. “Providing potential olim
with a better understanding of the Israeli job market helps build their aliya
confidence and preparedness and is vital for ensuring their successful
integration into Israeli life.”
A number of industry-focused seminars
will also be presented by Nefesh B’Nefesh staff and professionals from various
fields, covering a wide range of professions, including hi-tech, marketing,
education, medicine, law, accounting and the non-profit sector.
York fair will feature a special networking seminar geared toward the many
singles and young professionals residing in the area.
