(Courtesy of Yeshiva University) Yeshiva University’s annual Jewish Job Fair, one of the largest Jewish networking opportunities in the United States, expects hundreds of Jewish professionals and dozens of Jewish organizations to come together February 27, on the University’s Wilf Campus in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood. The fair offers participants a unique opportunity to meet with a variety of Jewish organizations, education institutions and advocacy groups to learn about the work the organizations do and opportunities for employment, as well as to interview for openings on the spot.
The fair is a collaborative effort among Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future, the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary and Wurzweiler School of Social Work.
Azrieli Graduate School is also hosting a pre-fair event, the first-ever “Azrieli HUB: Reconnect, Connect, Recharge” conference. Billed as an “unconvention,” the HUB is a non-traditional conference that will convene Orthodox Jewish education professionals, Azrieli students and alumni to consider and address the challenges and opportunities that students, schools and families present.
The two-day HUB conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Englewood, February 26-27. On the second day, the HUB moves to the Wilf Campus in upper Manhattan for the final segment of the program and the Jewish Job Fair, which begins at 6 p.m.
Pre-registration to the Job Fair is now open for employers and job seekers. To book appointments and for instruction on how to prepare, visit https://www.yu.edu/jewishjobfair.
