Success Story - Yuval Oren and Regev Chirik, Software Architect and a Software Tester, Log-On

Regev Chirik and Yuval Oren found their jobs at Log-On Software via the Jobnet site.

Yuval Oren, 33, a programmer by profession, came to Log-On after several years working as a Unix programmer and founding a startup company. Eventually he was hired at the company six weeks ago as a software architect, providing consulting services at one of Israel's largest financial institutions.

Yuval recalls:
"Before I came to Log-On I worked in development for an extended period. I was a Unix person and worked my way up to team leader. In 2001 I began a startup company that developed medical files for veterinary hospitals, and after I was unable to find an investor, I dismantled it and began looking for work. Having vast experience in the field of development I ran into a lot of problems due to the pyramid effect – the more limited the demand for a certain position, the harder it is to find work."

Regev Chirik, 34, who has a bachelor's degree in computer sciences and mathematics, came to Log-On after leaving a job as a software tester at Ness Technologies. He was hired at the company two and a half months ago as a software tester at one of the world's leading high-tech companies.

Regev recalls:
"Shortly before finishing my degree at Netanya College I began working in Quality Assurance at Ness. After seven months the project we were working on ended and was sold to another company."

How did you go about the job-search process?
Regev: "With the completion of the project I began the task of looking for work. I sent resumes out to my friends and tried to make use of all the connections I had. I also distributed my resume widely through an Internet site that focuses the search according to certain parameters. I wasn't being picky and sent my resume for a broad range of fields such as system, QA and development. I did get a number of responses from companies and even went to two interviews, but I wasn't satisfied with the jobs. I was looking for a job that offered more involvement with technology."

Yuval: "My goal was to search for high-level software positions that matched my level of experience. I conducted a web search and sent resumes to apply for jobs advertised in the newspaper. I was looking for a job that was less administrative and more technical, with a professional challenge. I had arrived at a stage in my career where I didn't want to compromise. I was willing to reject offers from attractive companies in order to achieve my goal."

How did you eventually arrive at Log-On?
Regev: "A friend recommended that I focus on looking for work on the Jobnet site. And a short time after sending out my resume one of the recruitment coordinators at Log-On called me in for an interview. During the recruitment process QA Manager Tzafrir Cohen gave me an overview of positions that fit my abilities. In the end they offered to make me a software tester at a high-tech company with numerous branches around the world, a company that is on the technological vanguard of the local and international high-tech markets. In my present job I'm testing a software system that helps solve computer malfunctions."

Yuval: "Like Regev, I sent out resumes through Jobnet and after two days I came to Log-On. The recruitment manager presented me with a range of positions suited to my expectations and high-level experience. Eventually Log-On set me up with one of the largest banks in the country. This is my first job at Log-On as a software architect. In practice the task involved leading .Net technology, working with a group of direct channels at the organization."

Tomer Wikinsky, recruitment manager:
"Log-On was founded in 1983 and has been operating in the local and international high-tech market for over 24 years. The company was founded by two young friends, Gil Migdan, who served in MAMRAM [the IDF's central computer technologies unit], and Yossi Segev, who served in the Navy Technology Unit. The two have served as CEOs to the present. We employ 250 software engineers in three main divisions – products, projects and consulting – and are in the process of substantial growth. Log-On provides software solutions for the enterprise and high-tech sectors in the areas of Web, e-commerce, customer relations, security, communications, etc. Our customers include Israel's five largest banks, insurance companies, credit companies and a range of local and international high-tech companies, including some of the largest in the market. In addition, we had an advanced development center at the company with dozens of programmers who develop and distribute a range of software products.
Our employees enjoy long-term, stable employment, exposure to a wide range of projects, a high level of technological professionalism and many opportunities for advancement.

How does Log-On maintain constant communication with its outsourcing workers?
Regev: "Long-On managers respond immediately to any question we pose, both professional questions and personal questions.
"Customer Relations Manager Tal Ilovich visits the sites, take an interest in how we're doing and makes an effort to let us known he is always available to help us.
"I definitely feel like an integral part of Log-On, whether because of the gifts we receive before the holidays or the company fun-days, and at the same time I'm working at a huge high-tech company. I get the best of both worlds."

Yuval: "I'm very happy with the way Log-On is run. I'm in constant contact with Leilach Harel, Log-On's customer service manager. There's also a Log-On portal with updates on benefits, events, etc."

Would you describe your story as a success?
Regev: "I feel I made the right choice. Within three weeks after the project at Ness closed, I found myself working at Log-On as a consultant at the high-tech company where I am now. I'm acquiring a lot of knowledge, the job offers me a lot more than than testing software and advances me professionally.

Yuval: "Definitely a good match. I always worked as a programmer in the high-tech world and now I've chosen to work at an organization for a change. The job is very interesting and challenging from a technological standpoint. I work with project managers and professional developers and am very pleased with my place at the company."

Do you have any suggestions for job-hunters?
Regev: "I recommend sending out your resume to as many people as possible, especially friends who have connections. I've passed on to Log-On resumes from about ten of my friends. Also, it's best not to be too selective in your search and to apply for a variety of jobs. In my opinion, one of the advantages of Jobnet is the wide selection of jobs and the sizable number of leading companies."

Yuval: "The most important thing is not to despair and give up."

Recruitment Manager Tomer Wikinsky on Log-On's collaboration with Jobnet:
"My fondness for Jobnet began around the time I started working at Log-On. During this period I substantially expanded the number of positions advertised on the site. The site proved itself in terms of successful recruitments. A significant percentage of company recruitment in 2006-07 was executed through Jobnet, which justifies our cooperation and the ads on the site."
