Financial stability and finding gainful employment are fundamental to a successful Aliyah. Telfed offers free employment advice and counseling pre- and post-Aliyah. Whether you have been in Israel for a week or a decade, employment counseling is available to you, free of charge. Expertly led by employment advisor, Yael Strausz, and our career counseling consultant, Michal Merten, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our team.

Before you make Aliyah we recommend the following:

  • Learn Hebrew! While a number of jobs for English speakers are available, if you are choosing to make Israel home, Hebrew is invaluable.
  • Set realistic and achievable goals.
  • Bear in mind that most employers will not offer you a job until you have made Aliyah.
  • Advance preparation is key.

Below, you will find answers to frequently asked questions, advice from our career counselor in our employment blog, useful links and information on professional licensing.

Telfed’s job board is regularly updated with jobs suitable for English speakers. We invite you to visit our job board on a regular basis for updated job openings. Likewise, if your company is looking to hire, please be in touch with Yael in order to share these openings with our community.

Please note: Telfed is not an employment agency. All jobs that appear on our website have been shared with us. For more details, or to apply, please contact the employer directly.
