We’ve been seeing a similar trend for a while–young people graduate from college and can’t find jobs. They spend a few months tinkering with commas on their resumes, writing reverential emails to potential employers, and when all else fails, panicking. Finally, they make the decision to do something more productive for their professional development.

Times of Israel: Why people are quitting their jobs to teach in Israel

Times of Israel: Why people are quitting their jobs to teach in Israel

February 9, 2012

We’ve been seeing a similar trend for a while–young people graduate from college and can’t find jobs. They spend a few months tinkering with commas on their resumes, writing reverential emails to potential employers, and when all else fails, panicking.
Finally, they make the decision to do something more productive for their professional development. For example: an internship–-and better yet, one that’s abroad because they’ve heard that international professional experience is an excellent addition to their resumes. Of course, if they’re lucky enough, they learn that these opportunities exist in Israel and that they can get funding to make it feasible.
 
Fast-forward five to 12 months, and they’re back home with sparking resumes, work experience in the Middle East (!), and quickly land the jobs they want. They look back, thankful that their experience helped them with their careers–and gave them a chance to be young and beautiful in Tel Aviv (or Jerusalem).
