As a post-college Masa Israel participant, you are gaining real-world skills while having a unique, immersive experience in Israeli society. Masa Works is an opportunity for post-college Masa Israel participants to receive high-quality, personalized career coaching and workshops during your Israel experience so you can get ahead of the game and ease your transition into the working world when you return home.
|WHY TAKE PART IN MASA WORKS?
Whether you are wrangling a class of 30 rambunctious children, writing reports for Israeli governmental agencies, or dedicating your heart and soul to helping the most vulnerable populations in underserved communities, you will emerge with serious professional experience sure to set you apart from your peers and impress employers.
But, it isn’t always clear how to translate your experience into a winning resume, or how to leverage your work into a satisfying job back home.
|RESOURCES FOR YOUR CAREER
Job hunting is stressful for even the most qualified applicant, and most people look for support and guidance through this major life step.
Masa Israel Journey has partnered with the Jewish Family Services of Columbus (but you don’t have to be from Columbus!) to launch Masa Works and provide you with tools to make your Israel experience work for you. JFS Career Strategists will work closely with each participant to develop individualized employment plans based on an initial needs assessment.
“Not only did I get help improving my resume and preparing for interviews, I was taught the art of networking, put in contact with a multitude of people who are more than willing to help find you a job or connect you with the people who can, and shown many other techniques and strategies that are vital in job searching.”
