replied to the thread Applying before moving
on the Israel forum:
I am a computer software professional, 31 years old. I've applied for tons of jobs via LinkedIn, but I have not really received any responses. Compared to an expat-heavy country like Dubai, where I've also searched a bit, I've gotten respones from almost everyone.
Is this because the expat culture is different in Israel? I really want to work there. But do I need to actually move there, and then apply, due to visa restrictions?
Here are a few tips:
1. Make sure your resume is no more than 2 pages.
2. Be sure to address each requirement for the job in a cover letter.
3. Don't give loads of information about your previous employers. Unless internationally renowned, the person reading your resume will most likely not have heard of your previous employer anyway.
4. If the level of English you use in your resume is too high, the person reading your resume will probably overlook it as he/she is most likely not a mother-tongue English speaker.
5. Most companies in Israel will only respond to your resume if you are a suitable candidate.

on the Israel forum:
Can anyone tell me their experience of shipping a car to Israel? I will be working there for 2 years.
What do I need to know?
Well, for one, it's not easy or cheap. Even for a 6 month temporary stay, I think you still end up paying a massive tax on the vehicle so make it's worth your time and money to do it. This page has some relevant information that you may find helpful https://www.a1autotransport.com/ship-car-to-israel.php Ultimately, you'll need to contact a shipper to have your questions answered anyway, so you may as well start. Contact several before committing to one and never pay for an estimate.

on the Israel forum:
I would like to bring a car with me to Israel during my summer vacation. Does anyone knows how to do it?
Must i have an Israeli driver's license to do it?
What about Insurance?
How long can i leave it in Israel for?
Whom is allowed to drive the car?
I agree with this. You're better off just renting something if it's a short term stay.
If you are coming to Israel for the summer vacation only, leave your car behind and get a rental car instead.
I'm the segment producer a new television series for Travel Channel tentatively titled “Relocated.” It follows the stories of people who are looking to relocate from the US to another country (most likely due to a new job, job transfer, etc.). We're currently shooting an episode in Buenos Aires and Budapest, but we would also like to find people moving to Tel Aviv, Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, We are open to people who are moving to any International city, preferably a non-English speaking city! We are looking to find a couple or family who is considering moving to a new country from the US. We would fly them RT for a “scout trip” where they would meet a relocations expert who will show them the city and several of its unique neighborhoods. I am trying to get the word out about this opportunity to find a couple/family who may be relocationg. This would obviously be great exposure for the city and would speak directly to those looking to relocate. Please get in touch with-

This sounds like an interesting idea for a show! I know some folks that might be interested & I'll pass along the info.
