Since the IT job market often insists that it’s not what you know, but who you know, it seems it would be wise for IT consultants to know who has the technical job opportunities they’re seeking. The source of many of the IT jobs that technical recruiters are working on is actually an area more known for its political conflict than its technical acumen: Israel. Despite all of its internal (and external) turmoil, Israelis can all seem to agree that innovation is key. Dubbed “The Startup Nation,” Israel has birthed 12 companies alone that just Cisco has bought in the past decade or so. With such high contributions to the information technology industry, there is no doubt that most IT staffing firms are filling jobs with Israeli origins.
What makes Israel a natural origin of some of the jobs IT headhunters have on supply? The Economist posits that Israel’s innovative nature comes from its land: as desert dwellers, Israelis are highly practiced at creativity. Living with a constant water deficiency turns out to be a perfect problem-solving boot camp. IT recruiting agencies and IT contractors might also find themselves working with Israeli-born companies because English is highly prevalent there, as are all of the standard business practices of a largely democratic nation. IT recruiters MA and IT recruiters CA may hardly notice they are working with a foreign-born company when they encounter of the many Israeli start-ups the American market has acquired.
What can IT staffing agencies and IT consultants do with this information? Use it for even more preparation in IT job interviews and the process of submitting prospective candidates and their resumes. Knowing that a sizeable portion of the Information Technology market has originated in Israel, IT recruiters can further inform their research. A candidate or IT recruiter who knows more about the company they’re working for is always more successful.
