Tips To Find a Job in Israel Using LinkedIn

As a dedicated career coach based in Tel Aviv, my goal in this article is to provide you with valuable tips and techniques that will help you in your search to find an English-speaking job in Job in Israel using LinkedIn.

So lets get into it!  🙂

To start your job search on LinkedIn, the first step is to create a strong profile that highlights your skills and experience.  Your profile should include a professional headshot (if possible), and a summary that describes your job / marketplace qualifications.  Don’t forget to add your work experience, educational history, and any other relevant certifications that will help you stand out to potential employers.

After doing the above, you are now officially ready to start searching for jobs on LinkedIn… and here are a couple tips to help you along the way:

1.  Use Relevant Keywords

Use specific keywords in your LinkedIn profile which related to the type of job you are searching for.  Using these relevant keywords will help LinkedIn to suggest the most relevant jobs for you.

In addition, this is also a good idea to do throughout your C.V.  Why?  Because many companies use an HR software which is set up to check your C.V. to see if it contains specific keywords.

2.  Follow Relevant Companies

Follow companies in your industry and location to stay up-to-date on their job postings.  In addition to searching for jobs on LinkedIn, you can also use the platform to research / follow potential employers and connect with current employees. This can give you valuable insights into company culture and the types of jobs that are available.

3.  Networking

LinkedIn is also a great platform for networking with other professionals in your field.  Join industry-specific groups and participate in discussions.  Also, you should not hesitate to send a connection request to others and inquire about potential job opportunities.

4.  Be Open to Speaking With Recruiters

It’s important to note that many job openings on LinkedIn are posted by job recruiters, head-hunters, or staffing agencies, rather than the companies themselves. This means that you should stay open + ready to speak with someone whose job it is to help you find a job.

5.  Research Potential Employers

Use LinkedIn to research potential employers and connect with current employees to gain insights into company culture and the types of jobs that are available.  Begin researching different companies in the alternative fields that you are interested in.

If you still don’t find anything right away, keep trying.  Keep researching to understand what companies there are in the market.  Additionally and more importantly, research which companies are looking for new hires.

6.  Go Into The “My Jobs” Section

In this section, you will be able to see if and which companies have looked at the CV’s you sent them.  Doing this will help you get an understanding of how attractive your C.V is.  If no companies are looking at / opening your C.V. then you know you need to make changes – to either your C.V. or the types of jobs you are applying for… or both. 

7.  Using The “Easy Apply” Feature

This feature is very convenient for uploading your CV and applying in the fastest way you possibly can.  You can find this feature towards the top of both the desktop website, and the mobile app.

9.  Email notifications

Once you select where (what city) you want to work in, and what type (field) of job you are looking for, you can select /choose to receive email notifications every time a job that fits your criteria is posted.  Doing this will help you stay up to date on the newest job opportunities.

In conclusion, LinkedIn is really a great tool for finding English-speaking jobs in Israel.  I can comfortably suggest that you create a professional profile, continually network, and follow the tips in this article to increase your chances of finding a great job in Israel that meets your qualifications and career goals.

Good Luck Job Hunters!
