What are the employment options in the United States?

The reasoning for working the in United States is relatively clear. The American labor market is one of the most developed markets in the world. The possibilities are endless, the conditions are excellent, and of course – experience gained in the USA is appreciated all over the world.

Employment options in the US are divided into two categories:


Temporary jobs

Most Israelis who are interested in working in temporary jobs do it in order to earn as much money as possible, as soon as possible, or alternatively, gain an enriching cultural experience on a short amount of time.

These jobs usually do not require previous experience – the employees gain the required skills in the duration of their employment. The most popular temporary jobs in the USA are in sales, transportation, cleaning, counseling youth in summer camps, etc.

For someone who is looking for a temporary job, especially in the US, it is strongly recommended to avoid arriving at the country without a work permit and avoid looking for a job “on the go”. Such a situation can cause uncertainty that can and should be avoided.

In order to legally work in the US – the employer must ask the authorities to provide a work permit before the employee starts his job. Additionally, the cost of living is relatively high in the United States. In light of that, lacking a guaranteed job can lead to significant economic difficulties.

It is recommended to conduct a thorough research and contact all of the relevant employers to get a job interview. In order to optimize this process, you can consult on the subject of placement with Adecco Israel, a company that can help you find a job in any state in the USA, and in any field.


Permanent jobs

These are relevant mostly for professionals, such as lawyers, accountants, doctors, engineers, programmers, etc., who are interested in settling in the USA for a long period of time. In case of some of these professions, their employing company will assist with issuing the work permits, which can be a great relief on the moving process.

In cases in which the employees accepted a relocation proposal from their employers in Israel, most of the worries and involved engagements are spared, since the company usually takes care of the work and residence permits, the high salary, and often partial or full financing of housing.


Why work for an Israeli company in the US?

The main question after choosing to work in the US is why should one work specifically for an Israeli company?

Relocating to the United States, especially when relocating an entire family, can be a complicated experience. There are personal adaptation difficulties, and mostly – having to take care of tedious bureaucracies. 

It is hard to receive a working visa in the US, and even after receiving it, there are many steps to be taken before one can fully settle in.

The main advantage of Israeli companies is that they have an incentive to help Israeli employees to get the requires permits, and in many cases the company will assist by contacting the authorities in order to obtain the required permit for its employees. This can make the relocation from Israel to the USA easier.

Moreover, in many cases it is easier for Israelis to get a job in an Israeli company. Even though there is a huge supply of employees in the market, many Israelis will have an advantage during the sorting process of these companies, considering the strong Israeli work ethic and the familiar cultural identity.


How does one find a job in an Israeli company in the USA?

There are numerous Israeli companies across the US. You can find Israeli companies operating almost in any field. Many believe that in this era of technology the best way to find a job is through social networks. However, when it comes to moving to a different country, especially for work, it is recommended to do it in an orderly and correct manner.

Before making a final decision regarding moving to another country, there are some thing you need to know. 

Here are some important tips:


Conduct a market survey

Before signing a contract of employment with an employer in the US, you must check all of the options you have in front of you. Since it is possible that you will start working at a company before ever visiting it, it is important to make sure that it is a good place to work. You must find out about the nature of the company, its reputation, the space you will work in (open space, office, etc.) and so on.


Working conditions

Aside from the salary, you must discover whether the Israeli company covers housing and transportation. Furthermore, it is recommended to find out if the Israeli company participates in the flight expenses, as well as the transportation from the airport to your residence, when you arrive.


Living conditions

It is recommended to discover whether the Israeli company assists its employees in finding suitable housing that is close to the workplace. In addition, if you are not planning on purchasing or renting a car, check to see if there is accessible public transportation to your workplace, during your working hours. 


Budget calculation

The cost of living in the US is relatively high, despite the impressive salaries. Before moving to the USA to start a job in an Israeli company, it is recommended to calculate your expected income after offsetting taxes, pension provisions and social security, as well as estimated fixed costs.

After calculating a monthly budget, you can calculate the profitability of the move, and the quality of life you may maintain if you stay.


Health insurance

The last thing you want to do is be in the USA without medical coverage. If something happens, the cost of any medical treatment – from a mild cold to life-saving hospitalization – can be downright unreasonable. Medical coverage will give you the confidence that you can take care of yourself, without worrying about the cost.


Community life

Adjusting to a new place can be difficult and challenging. It is highly recommended to search and see if there are communities that suit your character where you want to live.

For example, you can look up Jewish and Israeli communities in the area, or groups who do sports or social activities, etc. Understanding the nature of a place and finding ways to connect with the local community – even before your arrival – can help to ease the adjustment significantly.
