Yeshiva University Wall Street Jobs Group

This is an on-line job referral group hosted on Google groups that is coordinated by YU Alumni.  The group sends out weekly job postings in order help the unemployed, further the careers of the employed, and continue to grow the Yeshiva University network. To be added as a member of the group and receive the weekly emails, please send a subscription request via email to yunetworking+subscribe@googlegroups.com

Conducting a Job Search

Once you are ready to apply for positions, you should devise a plan and assign yourself timelines. The job search process has many steps, and each is critical for finding the right job and accepting an offer.

Career Research

Many websites are devoted to industry and organizational research. Review our Tips & Resources page which lists several helpful resources including Vault's Career Insider, CareerBliss, Glassdoor, and more. Also review the Department of Labor's web site at www.bls.gov/oco, America's Career InfoNet (which includes excellent videos explaining occupations) at www.careerinfonet.org, and web sites of specific organizations. The center has also created industry overviews for alumni thinking about changing careers.

You should read publications related to your field of interest, including magazines, newspapers, and trade journals. Professional associations offer excellent opportunities to explore different industries and to network with professionals who are active in their fields. By joining, you gain access to online resources, job listings, periodicals and newsletters, and invitations to local and national conferences and networking events. You can find listings of professional associations online through many sites, including Weddle's Associations Directory.

Informational Interviewing

Speaking with fellow alumni and other contacts is one of the best ways to learn about an industry and make connections. Do preliminary research before speaking with industry professionals and update your resume so you can provide it to contacts. Remember to be professional and courteous and do NOT ask for a job directly. See the Career Center fact sheet on networking and informational interviewing for more information.

Industry Overviews

If you are considering a career transition, review our industry handouts, which provide brief overviews of career tracks within select industries. They also include web sites for additional information.

To learn more or speak with a counselor, please email us at careercenter@yu.edu or call us at (646) 592-4090 (Wilf) and 646-592-4135 (Beren).
