When you schedule the meeting, you MUST indicate the reason for the visit (resume, mock interview, major selection, general career counseling, etc.).

  10. You can reschedule or cancel your appointment up to 24 hours in advance. Once you log in, go to “Calendar” and then “Counseling Appointments” and you will see the options to cancel or reschedule. If you need to change an appointment and it is less than 24 hours in advance, please call the office.

(Please remember that you can always still call or stop by the office to schedule an appointment and to ask any questions!)

You can upload a number of documents, including resumes, cover letters, unofficial transcripts, letters of recommendations, and writing samples.

  1. Click “Documents” on the top of the page and then click “Add New.”  
  2. Give a title for the document that is clear (We suggest including the date.), such as “John Doe Resume 2013”.

YU CareerLink will then convert your file into a PDF format, which is what SGC staff and employers will see. Please click the PDF icon after submitting your resume to be sure that the file looks the way that it does on your computer. Sometimes formatting can change during the conversion process.

ALL resumes require approval from a counselor at the SGC. Once submitted to the system, your resume will be held for approval and reviewed within 24-48 hours (excluding weekends).

  • We STRONGLY urge you to have the resume reviewed in person at the SGC before uploading in order to expedite the approval process.
  • If your resume is not approved, you will receive an email outlining some of the problems which need to be addressed. Read this email carefully.
  • Cover letters do not require approval, though we highly encourage you have them reviewed by our office as well.

  • Notice regarding fraudulent job listings - While the SGC diligently works to ensure job listings available to students are legitimate, students should be informed on how to identify potential fraudulent employer job listings. Please see our tip sheet on identifying fraudulent employers. 
  • On the tabs above the homepage, click ''Jobs.'' (Notice there are ''YU CareerLink Jobs'' and ''NACELINK Network.'' YU CareerLink jobs are specifically posted for YU students, but you can search both for opportunities.)
  • A basic search allows you to view the listings based on keywords and/or type of position (internship, full-time, or part-time).
  • An advanced search allows you to search based on many more criteria, including industry, job function, location, major, etc.
  • Once you have found a job you are interested in, click on the job title.
  • Read the job description and qualifications to ensure you are eligible. Note important dates as well as instructions for how to apply.  Some companies will allow you to apply directly through the YU CareerLink system, while others will prefer that you apply via email, fax, or the organization's website.  SOME EMPLOYERS WILL REQUEST THAT YOU APPLY VIA THEIR OWN WEBSITE IN ADDITION TO YU CAREERLINK. Follow instructions carefully!
  • Click the “Apply” button and select the requested document(s), which should already have been uploaded and approved, from the drop-down menu.
  • If a cover letter is not required, but you still prefer to submit one (which we highly recommend), you can copy and paste the text of the letter into the “Notes” text box.
  • Choose the requested documents and click ''Submit.''  Your application will be sent directly to the employer.
  • You can create a job search agent to enable the system to email you any time a new position arises which matches your criteria. To do so, you must save your advanced search, click on job search agent, schedule the frequency with which you want to receive the emails, and click “enable.”

  2. Select workshop, career fair, or info session. Most events will be in “Workshops.”
  3. Click on the title of the event of interest.
  4. Then click on “RSVP.”

If you cannot RSVP for some reason it may be because the event has been filled to capacity or you are not eligible to attend.

There are many career resources available to you through YU CareerLink, including tip sheets, industry guides, and occupational information. Click the “Resources” tab and you will see two options:

  • Career Explorer: information about career fields pulling data from the US Department of Labor

Resume: Employers can not see your resume unless you specifically send it to them by attaching it to a job application.

Profile: The system enables you to create a searchable profile, which is not visible to employers unless you select "Publish" in the upper right corner of your profile page. If you select "Publish" then employers will be able to search for and view your YU CareerLink profile.  You should review your profile with a SGC advisor before making it visible to employers.

Please contact the SGC so it can be changed. Also check with the registrar to inform them of any changes to your intended graduation date.

Please write that it is a 3.0 temporarily, and then change it once you receive grades from your first full semester on campus.

We recommend writing a tailored letter to show your interest in the specific position and the employer. Please contact the SGC for assistance with cover letters. Remember, submitting a poorly written cover letter can hurt your chances of being interviewed.

The resume did not meet the minimum resume approval requirements of the SGC. Please carefully read the emails that were sent regarding your resume and make the necessary changes. Either make an appointment, drop by during walk-ins to clarify the issues, or try e-mailing one of the counselors who reviewed your resume and ask them to assist you with the approval process. Direct communication will help get your resume approved faster.

It’s possible that one counselor missed an error that a different counselor noticed or that you didn’t implement all of the changes that the initial counselor instructed you to do before uploading. If you are getting conflicting feedback, please contact Christopher Thunberg, Director of Counseling & Programming, at thunberg@yu.edu.

To upload a transcript from Banner to Symplicity, you can follow these general steps:

  • Follow the instructions on the Registrar's website to obtain your unofficial transcript from Banner. Transcripts are provided in a PDF sent to your YU email address.

  • Save the transcript on your computer. Download and save the transcript file to a location on your computer that you can easily access.

  • Log in to YU CareerLink.Open your web browser and navigate to the platform. Enter your login credentials (YU email address) to access your account and your password.

  • In the upper right corner, where your initials can be found once you log on, click on the initials.

  • Click “Documents” on the top of the page and then click “Add New.”

  • Give a clear title for the document (we suggest including the date), such as “John Doe Transcript 2023.”

  • Choose the correct file to upload and click “Submit.”

  • YU CareerLink will then convert your file into a PDF format (if you uploaded the file in another format), which is what SGC staff and employers will see. Please click the PDF icon after submitting your resume to be sure that the file looks the way that it does on your computer. Sometimes formatting can change during the conversion process.

  • Verify successful upload. Once the upload process is complete, check for any confirmation messages or indications that the transcript has been successfully uploaded. Review your transcript within YU CareerLink to ensure that all information is accurately displayed.

There are many reasons for this. It could be because of your class year, GPA, international student status or because you did not meet certain criteria that an employer specified for potential candidates.

Please note that YU CareerLink is updated daily and to keep checking for new opportunities. Some types of positions are seasonal, meaning they are only posted at select times of the year. It is very possible that you need to broaden your search criteria to generate more results. Remember that YU CareerLink is ONE resource for your job search and you should be utilizing other job search techniques as well. Please ensure that you are working with a counselor to address your specific job search needs.

Sometimes. Select events may require an RSVP, which will be communicated in the event description. However, even when not required, we strongly encourage you to RSVP so we can ensure that there is enough space and food for attendees.

Students applying to OCR jobs must meet requirements communicated by the SGC prior to recruiting season. If you don’t see the listings, either you are not eligible, did not meet all requirements, or the setting was not turned on in your account. Please contact the SGC so we can review your eligibility and change the settings.

“Job Function” refers to the specific role one has on the job (tasks and responsibilities), while the “Industry” refers to the general area of economic or commercial activity.  For example, one can be an accounting intern at a fashion company - the Job Function would be Accounting, while the Industry would be Fashion.

If it has been 1-2 weeks since you applied, please follow up with the employer, either via email or phone, and ask where they are in the hiring process. Re-affirm your interest in the position. Only follow up once or twice maximum and do NOT harass an employer with constant calls and emails. If the job posting did not list contact information, email us at careerstrategy@yu.edu.
