So, let’s delve into the fascinating world of salaries and discover what the average job salary looks like in Israel.

First things first…

There two crucial factors which influence the average job salary in Israel.

The first factor is education and skill level. In addition, another crucial factor is the industry or sector in which a person works.

That being said, let’s get into it.

Average Salary Range

As of the most recent data, the average monthly salary in Israel is around 10,000 to 12,000 Israeli shekels.

However, it is important to note that salaries will range significantly depending on the occupation and industry.

For example, working in high-demand fields like technology, engineering, and finance will earn you a higher salary compared to jobs in the service industry or manual labor jobs.

Moreover, the location in which you find a job will affect salary – with major cities like Tel Aviv offering higher pay compared to the rest of the country.

Cost of Living

When looking for a job while considering average job salaries, it’s essential to take into account the cost of living in Israel.

It is not cheap!

Depending on where you choose to live, housing, transportation, food, and healthcare costs will vary.

Major cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem have a higher cost of living compared to other areas – Holon, Bat Yam, Ramat Gan, Ashdod, Haifa, etc.

It is important to budget and plan accordingly to ensure a comfortable lifestyle for you and your family.

Your Skills = Your Value

I am not sure where you currently are, only you know that but acquiring new skills will lead to higher earning potential.

It is important to invest in yourself and your personal and professional development to stay competitive in the Israeli job market.

Thus, increasing your value and earning potential over the long term.

Sounds familiar?

But it all unfolds about 9 years back, following years of soul-searching when a revelation struck me like lightning.

I’d realize my life’s purpose.

The purpose of my life, and my gift, is teaching other people – helping them grow and achieve their dreams and goals.

It was always right in front of me…

In addition, I had been doing it my whole life… and I had always been great at it.

So, with Israel as the startup capital of the world, I decided to open my own sales training business as a starting point – of helping other people get what they want.

And I created a detailed, step by step plan.

But, my road to entrepreneurship wasn’t easy.

I had to establish my consulting company while holding a full-time job at a high-tech software firm.

Every moment that I wasn’t clocked in at my full-time job, was spent working on developing sales training materials, and acquiring new clients.

I focused on my target audience, reaching out across Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Ramat Gan, Jerusalem, Bat Yam, and Holon.

And finally, I secured my first corporate customers.

But, what struck me the most during my sales training workshops was the aftermath.

Participants loved the workshops for their value, but it was the private conversations that ensued that truly captivated me.

After almost every workshop, one or two people would come up to me and begin confiding in me, not just about their struggles in sales but about their life’s struggles.

One pivotal moment was when a student sought personal guidance, and offered to pay me for a one-on-one session outside the workshop setting.

As a struggling entrepreneur, I embraced the opportunity.


Soon, similar requests followed.

One seeking job interview preparation.

Another asking for self-confidence building sessions.

Another asking for job interview + CV creation advice

And another asking for life advice.

And on and on…

Moreover, as time passed the realization hit hard and the truth was undeniable.

I was not only adding value, but making a huge difference in their lives.

It was like watching a fast-forward movie of personal growth.

Everyone had made huge progress in just a few sessions, thanks to the power of working together.

The truth is, I never planned to be anyone’s official anything. But as more and more people sought my guidance, the “Career Counselor”  and “life Coach” labels just stuck.

It’s quite humbling, actually.

Unlike many who aspire to become certified coaches before their first client, this awesome fulfilling profession came to me.

And I love helping people because it makes me feel good to see them succeed in their goals.

And that, short story long, is the origin of my journey into life coaching and career counseling in Israel.

Now fast forward 9 years, and I’m proud to say that I’ve helped hundreds and hundreds of English speakers in Israel from around the world!
