“How did I find my job? I arrived in Israel fresh out of grad school with an engineering degree in my hand and a dream in my heart. After my first few months in Israel searching for a job with no luck, I heard about Gvahim’s new program in Jerusalem and decided to give it a try. At Gvahim I fine-tuned my résumé and my mentor prepared me for interviewing. Soon enough I had been invited to a few interviews and ended up receiving a job offer from Apple.
Gvahim helped me put my best foot forward and when I did, I discovered that Israelis value the talent and skills Olim bring to the table, but also their enthusiasm and spirit.
