It’s no surprise. Software developers and the technological talent are in high demand in Israel, the Start-Up Nation – and all eyes on are on the techie newbies. The IDC Herziliya recently held a job fair for its students and graduates, and hosted over one hundred hi tech companies looking to fill jobs like software developers, engineers, and other government/financial tech roles.

With confidence and clarity, just graduated or soon-to-be graduates are in high demand, and these days, it’s the future employees who get to be choosy when it comes to their career moves. For technology hounds, they no longer just focus on having a good salary – but are looking for the whole package, including benefits, growth opportunities, mentoring and more.

Tech roles today get paid almost 70% more than they did in 2007. The startup ecosystem in Israel has also doubled in size since almost a decade ago, and is in high demand of a market that in in short supply.

With such quick growth and not enough talent to keep up, the graduates with tech degrees are flying forward with limitless career choices and high expectations for their new job roles.

With a strong need for development skills, and over 350 companies hosting their research and development centers to Israel, the Startup Nation is in dire desire of fresh young minds to work their scientific magic and help them “tech” it to the next level.
