This paper provides a descriptive analysis of the integration of the immigrants from the CIS in the Israeli labor market and, specifically, in the hi-tech sector. The analysis is based on the national cross sectional Labor Force Survey and on a unique panel data that follows Russian engineers for up to twelve years in Israel. According to the panel data there is a significant positive correlation between immigrants’ participation in government-provided training programs and the propensity to work in hi-tech and white-collar jobs. However, this correlation diminishes with time since participation such that ‘fresh’ participants face a higher probability to work in hi-tech and white-collar jobs than those who participated years ago.
