Success Story - Elad Chananiya, Senior .Net Consultant, Sela Technology Center

Elad Chananiya found his job at the Sela Technology Center, a part of the Sela Group, via the Jobnet site.

Elad, 26, who served in MAMRAM (the IDF's computer and information systems unit) and later as an officer and head of a development team, is studying for a degree in computer sciences at Bar Ilan University.

Elad started working at the Sela Group about a month ago as a senior .Net consultant. His job is both to develop and provide training.

Elad recalls:
"After my army service I spent a year and a half working as head of a development team at a challenging, high-caliber company that develops medical imaging applications. I completed the job when the system reached the finished product stage with great success. Upon finishing the job I took a three-month break. Afterwards I started looking for work."

On the job-search process:

"I conducted my search through a number of placement companies that I knew of beforehand and by sending out my resume via Jobnet. The positions I was aiming for were senior team leader or development manager. I was familiar with Jobnet from the last time I had looked for work in 2005.
"I really liked Jobnet because the interface allows you to send resumes directly to the final customer rather than going through an intermediary company. The search process took a total of two and a half weeks and was very intensive – 4-5 interviews a day. From the moment I started to look the phone rang off the hook.
"After three weeks I had already received all of the final offers. Six or seven made it to the semifinals and two to the final round – Sela and another company.
"I had to weigh the matter and decide whether I really wanted to continue in the direction I had in mind – senior team leader or development manager – or whether I should become a consultant, which is something I hadn't initially considered, because I was unfamiliar with that field. It took me a week to decide that this is what I wanted to do."

How did you make your final decision?
"I sent my resume to the Sela Group, applying for a position as team leader, but they got back to me with an offer for a job as a consultant.
"Until then I hadn't thought about the field of consulting and I wasn't so thrilled by the idea at first. I wasn't sure I wanted to be a consultant, because I like leading people, not just technologically but also managerially, and that's what I've been doing for the past four and a half years. Then I weighed the matter and I realized that this job could fit me well and I decided to work here as a consultant. When I came in for the interview at Sela I already had several concrete offers from other companies for positions as development manager. I met with Sela CTO Alon Pellis, a very high-caliber expert, and I was told the job would be really varied – working both as a consultant for a large number of customers, which means involvement in the development core of many different projects and always running forward with technologies, which also comes to play in developing training capabilities to be taught here at Sela. I believe that the best way to learn is to teach. And I have a lot of learning opportunities here."

Avi Balaish, director of sales at Sela Technology Center, a part of the Sela Group, describes the company:
"The Sela Group was founded in 1990 by Dudu Bassa and Caro Segal, and operates in two primary areas: the Training Center and the Technology Center.
"The company was originally set up as a training center to provide students practical know-how. At the Training Center Sela runs training programs for the high-tech industry and a college – short training programs lasting 1-2 years in the area of computing technologies and courses to bring professionals up-to-date.
The Technology Center is involved in consulting, project management and outsourcing conducted under a single umbrella of two activities – both the training center and the software house – giving Sela a tremendous advantage. Of the thousands of students enrolled at the college, we hire the best at the software house, and the lecturers also serve as consultants at the software house and there is a direct and unmistakable tie between the college and the technology center.
"In 2001 the Sela Group acquired Calanit-Carmon College, which specialized in Microsoft courses, and today Sela's technology center leads in Microsoft technologies and is involved in numerous projects, including projects in cooperation with Microsoft."

On working with Jobnet, Avi adds:
"I've been in this field for ten years and as somebody who is very familiar with the high-tech industry and a whole lot of recruitment sources, I can say that Jobnet is one of the best sources for quality, qualified personnel."

What's your impression of the company?
Elad: "It really is a familial company. There's a lot of consideration and a channel for direct contact among everybody, including the CEO. I'm very pleased and I believe Sela is a place where I'll be able to advance a lot, both professionally and personally, and in a managerial capacity, too, as the technological leader for projects.
"It's an amazing company, and it's pleasant here. The terms are good and from a professional standpoint as well I see a lot of advantages in a place like Sela. Though I've only been here for a month, in terms of variety I've already gone to consulting meetings at the client sites, taught a course, took two courses myself, learned a whole lot about 3.0 and .Net. I've already integrated into development a system code and all this in a short period of time. It's amazing how this company works and is run."

A success story?
"I'm very happy here. When I considered what would advance me more, I realized that Sela could advance me a lot more than anywhere else from a professional standpoint. Because at any other place I would arrive at a niche, I would focus and delve into a certain matter, investigate it and learn about it in depth, like I've done until now at various places, but that allows less in terms of broad vision. There are people at a very high level professionally and there is mutual support among the consultants. The work atmosphere here is really amicable. There's not too much ego here, which is quite rare in consulting."

In conclusion, do you have a recommendation for jobseekers?
"Get scraped up a bit in job interviews at places where you're less eager to get hired, because there's a difference between a first interview and a third interview. Always try to see where you can learn more, know more and expand your horizons. To me that's the most important thing in our market. Those who don't learn fast enough and well enough don't just stay in place, but go backwards."
