In a networking event organized by the Gvahim organization in Tel Aviv, immigrants seeking a career in government and politics met with current and former government officials who advised and helped them create a professional network.
Gvahim was founded in order to assist these young professionals from abroad to integrate into Israeli society and fulfill their professional objectives.
A career in politics and government is not an easy one to attain for anyone, but especially not for new immigrants. The irony is, however, that these talented and educated young internationals can potentially bring something new to the table.
"They are graduates of the best universities in the world in public administration and they want to bring their knowledge here to contribute, to strengthen the State of Israel, and we should use this fantastic resource to help Israel reach new heights," explains Dr. Mickael Bensadoun, executive director of Gvahim.
The words of Ariel Rodal-Spieler, a new immigrant from Canada, demonstrate the immigrants' motivation and desires. "I moved to Israel because I'm a big Zionist and I just want to be able to contribute to the betterment of the country," she says.
