Tomer Sheinin, 25, completed his military service, and after an extended trip abroad began to look for work in the field of computer network management. Eventually Tomer found his job as infrastructures consultant at YSIDE five months ago, through the Jobnet site.
Brimming with enthusiasm, Tomer tells us about the processes he went through before he was recruited to YSIDE, and about what he describes as a fascinating and challenging job as infrastructures consultant.
This is really my first job in the civilian job market. During my military duty I took a course at MAMRAM (the IDF's computer technologies unit) and was assigned to the Air Force's technology and computers unit. After officer's training I went back to manage the staff I had worked on and at the end of three years as a commissioned officer I was discharged and started looking for work.
How did you conduct your job search?
During my military service I gained a lot of experience and received a whole lot of work tools. When I was released I looked for a job that would provide me the same level of challenge, or even more. I forged contact with large civilian companies I had worked with in the army and at the same time my friends recommended Jobnet to me as a focal point for job-hunting. Jobnet has a significant advantage in that it lays out numerous possibilities and allows you to choose positions selectively. This way I could send my resume only in response to positions I was interested in, and not a wide distribution I had no control over. In addition I could make direct contact with companies without any intermediary figure, allowing me to present myself and my ambitions as best as possible.

How did you wind up at YSIDE?
I sent my resume in response to several positions advertised on Jobnet. A short time later a number of companies got back to me. One day later I received a reply from YSIDE, where the recruitment process took less than a week. The process was short and quick, but not simple.
Getting hired involved five phases and included technical exams, psycho-technical testing and interviews. Eventually I was hired as an infrastructures consultant specializing in virtualization (technology that allows flexibility and effective use of existing hardware, e.g. defining a number of "virtual" servers on a single physical server). There was something that really drew me to YSIDE.
What was it that attracted you to YSIDE?
Before I went in for the interview I looked into the company. I entered a few analysts' forums to expose myself to company activities and found that the company won the Leaders in Technology Award in the field of virtualization in the IT Awards [a competition for outstanding performance in computerization sponsored by Anashim Umachshevim]. This achievement really impressed me since I knew the company was just starting out. And when I came in to take the exams the people were very friendly and the atmosphere was very pleasant compared to other companies, where I had felt like a cog in a big machine and was not related to as a person to the same extent.
Human Relations Manager Sarit Salominsky, on the company:
YSIDE, which was founded in 2005, is a consulting company for advanced IT infrastructures solutions. We provide consulting services and project management for the client organization's infrastructures, accompany large-scale projects in the information systems department, provide information security services, assimilate solutions for high-level technology personnel, etc. The company implements projects using the newest Microsoft technologies.
YSIDE employs reputable experts and experienced workers in planning and major, highly professional projects. We operate at leading companies in the Israeli market, including the security sector (Unit 8200, the Air Force and the Navy), the government sector (the Prime Minister's Office) and the business sector (Leumi Card, IBM, Mei Eden, EDS Partner and Pelephone).
The company has 25 technology consultants with expertise in various areas, such as virtualization, command and control, etc. From the day the company was set up to the present we've come a very long way and continue to push forward. And since we're on the technological vanguard and are concerned for the personal development of company employees, we're transformed YSIDE into a "learning organization" using a training and enrichment program we're developing and implementing.
How was your integration here?
My integration here was simply amazing. On my first day I was introduced to everybody and already felt at home. I underwent a very fast training program because I had a solid base in technology, and within a week I was hooked up with another consultant to learn the job in the field. YSIDE also has training programs all the time, through which we gain expertise in our fields and are exposed to new technologies.
What does an "infrastructures consultant" do?
As an infrastructures consultant I advise and assist my customers to build work plans that, through my knowledge and experience, will achieve their goals the best way possible. In addition to theory, my job also involves technical work in the field.
What kind of a company is YSIDE?
It's a company that places emphasis on developing and encouraging its employees both from a personal and professional standpoint. There's a very warm atmosphere here; often the CEO even shares his opinion of my work, giving feedback and not just looking at the final figures.
The company is composed of young people with a unique way of thinking, and people are very open-minded to new ideas. The style of work is dynamic. Every day I learn something new and I never feel like today was the same as yesterday.
Would you describe yours as a success story?
I would describe it as more than a success story. In my opinion relations between the company and the employee affect one another (for better or worse) and here I feel I'll be able to contribute as best I can, and at the same time realize my ambitions.
As a consultant to a large number of customers I'm exposed to a whole lot of technologies and I'm not tied down to a certain approach to technological and business management. Every customer is a whole world unto itself with a different way of looking at it and a different way to assimilate the technology, so I'm acquiring a lot of know-how from all of the different configurations.
Do you have any advice for jobseekers?
The first thing I can recommend is not to give up. A lot of people are optimistic about their abilities when they first start out and after the professional exams discover they lack knowledge, which can lead to a lack of confidence. It's important to trust yourself and not stop looking. It's also a good idea to do good prep work by conducting an investigation of sorts regarding the company you're going to, and in interviews to present yourself candidly.
Sarit, on cooperation with Jobnet:
About a year ago we started collaborating with Jobnet and we've been very pleased. The resumes that come to us through the site are very focused and expose us to a highly professional selection of job candidates, one of whom was Tomer. Also, I think the site offers Internet users a variety of information on every matter related to job-hunting. The article, for example, is a very worthwhile idea for web-users in need of guidance in their job searches, which can be exhausting.
