'Intern in Israel' Campaign Meets Recent College Graduates’ Demands

'Intern in Israel' Campaign Meets Recent College Graduates’ Demands

March 29, 2012

Masa Israel Journey has enabled 3,600+ North American college graduates to participate in internship programs in Israel since 2008.
College graduation is right around the corner, jobs are scarce, and young adults are planning ahead and searching for alternative career development options both in the States—and overseas.  One of the fastest growing destinations is Israel.  To meet this surging demand, Masa Israel Journey, a project of the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel, which runs immersive internship, volunteer and academic programs in Israel, has launched InternInIsrael.org which includes video testimonials of recent college graduates who have chosen to intern in Israel.  
 
Through Masa Israel Journey, 1,064 North American young adults have registered for internship programs in Israel this year—joining the 2,603 who have participated in career development programs in Israel since the economy collapsed in 2008. Through these programs, recent college graduates intern at top companies in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for five months, gaining the professional experience they need to be hired back home. Israeli companies, seeking an edge in the international market, are clamoring for interns with the right skills and education who can take on big project because in Israel, interns never make coffee or photocopies.
 
“Being in a small department allows me to experience a lot of things that I would never experience back home,” said Boston-native Jenna Krueger who is interning at Hadassah Medical Center in the Cardiology Department through Masa Israel’s Real Life Israel program.  Jenna is helping create a national database for Hadassah’s amyloidosis patients.  Dr. Arthur Pollak, Head of the Intensive Cardiology Care Center said, “We are happy to have Jenna here because she can bring us some of her experience and knowledge, and expand our ability to actually treat our patients.”
 
After earning her MBA in Real Estate Development, Dina Silberstein, NY-native, enrolled in Masa Israel’s WUJS Internship program in January 2011 and interned at Etz Hashaked Building and Development in Herzliya. “I realized that New York City had a tough job market at the time for real estate development, and I wanted to find a way to gain experience in my new field,” said Silberstein.  Through her internship in Israel, Silberstein worked in construction and project management.  Now back in New York, Silberstein works at Mace Group, a worldwide project management consulting firm.
 
"Israel's entrepreneurial culture gives American young adults the opportunity to gain meaningful professional skills in a cross cultural environment,” said Masa Israel’s North American Director Avi Rubel.  “We're thrilled to see the growth in our program and look forward to welcoming hundreds more interns to Israel next year."
 
To help cover their expenses, Masa Israel provides each participant with grants and scholarships of up to $7,500.  Internship participants also participate in Hebrew class, seminars about modern-day Israel, and trips throughout the country.
