Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future and the YU School Partnership will host its annual Jewish job fair on Thursday, March 3, at the Max Stern Athletic Center on YU’s Wilf Campus, 2501 Amsterdam Avenue at 185th Street in New York City. The event is free and open to the public from 7 to 9 p.m., with priority admission for YU students and alumni beginning at 6 p.m.
In addition to showcasing a variety of professional opportunities at Jewish day schools, organizations and nonprofits, the event provides a robust networking opportunity for job-hunters seeking information on careers in the Jewish community.
“We are proud to offer schools the incredible opportunity to do some of their most challenging work, which is finding good teachers, while at the same time enabling job seekers to pound the pavement in one room and interview with dozens of potential employers,” said Eliana Sohn, project coordinator of leadership development programs and placement services at the YU School Partnership. “As a co-hosting partner of the YU Jewish Job Fair since its inception, we are finding that the job fair has become much more than its name reflects–it is now a vital networking opportunity for schools and educators alike.”
More than 60 Jewish day schools from 13 states and community organizations from across North America and overseas will be in attendance to meet and conduct interviews with candidates.
Pre-registration is open through March 1. To book appointments with day school employers in advance and to receive email updates about which employers will be attending, as well as to submit a resume before the fair, register on YU’s JEDJobs (www.JEDJobs.org).
