Mossad to Have Booth at Jobs Fair


However secret the activities of the Mossad, Israel’s espionage arm, may be, its recruitment methods — at least sometimes — are as transparent as any ordinary business.

The intelligence agency plans to participate in Monday’s job fair at Ben-Gurion University in Be’er Sheva, where students will meet with representatives from some 30 of Israel’s leading companies.

The fair will feature companies in the fields of technology, finance, management, and medicine. On the list are: Marvell, EMC, Intel, Maccabi Pharm, Prigo, Check Point, Elbit Systems, the Jewish Agency, Israel Aircraft Industries, Raphael, Amdocs, and Orange.

“In recent months, we are seeing instability in the job market where quite a few companies from a number of fields are firing workers due to the economic situation or because of changes in the business environment,” said Prof. Moshe Kaspi, dean of students at BGU.

“Nonetheless, we are seeing greater demand on the part of employers who want to hire more quality students in the fields of technology, health care, medicine and sales.”
