When I first moved to Israel, almost three years ago, I remember being fascinated by the surprising amount of startups and tech companies constantly on the lookout for employees. For someone like me, coming from a very different work environment as the Italian one – where high tech and endless amounts of job opportunities aren’t exactly on the agenda – this felt overwhelming and exciting at the same time. With the time, I’ve learned that this is a reality one eventually gets used to and that, ultimately increases the chances of finding your dream job. Typically, when a company’s on the constant outlook for employees, it means it’s expanding and that naturally makes it a more desirable workplace. Nevertheless, when it comes to attractive companies hiring new employees, the competition becomes fierce. That’s why it’s important to be prepared and informed about your current opportunities out there, in order to move fast and finally get that much-wanted job opportunity.
Here are 10 of the most desirable Israeli companies you should look out for right now.
