• Career Center

  • Recruiting

    Students have the opportunity to meet potential employers during interviews, career forums, and workshops given throughout the fall and spring semesters. Events take place at both the Wilf and Beren Campuses. We encourage you to contact Career Center as early in the year as possible to meet the staff and stay up-to-date on career related events. In addition to on-campus recruiting, the Career Center offers:

    • YU CareerLink, an online job posting system for full-time, part-time, internship and summer positions
    • On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) for select employers who wish to interview students at Yeshiva (see below for eligibility requirements for OCR)
    • Our Spring Career Fair in March offers students the chance to meet employers from a diverse spectrum of industries and organizations
    • The annual Jewish Community Jobs Fair in February, now coordinated by the Center for the Jewish Future, brings employers from various Jewish based organizations to campus
    • Panels and networking opportunities with alumni and other professionals in diverse industries

    To inquire further about our campus recruitment activities, please contact a member of our staff.


    As of September 2016, several accounting OCR positions will be posted on YU CareerLink. Additional positions will be added throughout the semester, so you should be checking YU CareerLink and your YU e-mail account regularly for news of additions and deadlines. You can check these positions on the YU CareerLink system by searching “All OCR Jobs.” If you do not see this option please contact the Career Center to be granted access. 


    YU CareerLink is the online system that will have all of the OCR jobs posted and which you will use to apply and schedule your interviews. Please make sure that your profile in YU CareerLink is updated so it reflects your current year as well as your graduation month and year. If it says “Junior” and you are actually a Senior, you will be missing out on some crucial e-mails and the system will block you from applying to positions for which you are actually eligible to apply. Please contact the Career Center if you have questions about how to update accordingly. To enter the YU CareerLink system, please click here


    The Career Center is here to make sure you are properly prepared for your OCR experience. In order to participate in OCR, you MUST complete the following items by your first interview, (All students are encouraged to complete their requirements as early as possible):  

    • Sign an OCR contract and return it to the Career Center.  
    • Have your resume reviewed and approved and then upload it onto YU CareerLink: How to Write a Resume  
    • Understand how to use the YU CareerLink system. Please make an appointment with a Career Center Counselor who will show you how to use the system: YU CareerLink Tutorial
    • Understand the timeline and requirements for participation in On Campus Recruitment; review the Guide to Accounting On Campus Recruitment 2016 (PowerPoint / PDF)
    • Schedule a Mock Interview with a Career Center Counselor prior to your first OCR interview. If you have not had a mock interview in the calendar year of 2013, please schedule an appointment during your first few weeks on campus. Practice using our Interviewing Effectively handout.
    • Attend mandatory OCR events: Accounting OCR Prep  January 31st, 2016, and several events in Fall (those will be announced over the summer of 2016). We will have major accounting firm representation at these events and if you are interested in working for these firms, you need to attend these events in person.


    In general, seniors (those graduating in May 2017) will be eligible for internship recruiting, and master's students will be eligible to recruit for full-time positions.
    Most of the firms are requiring students to have 150 credits and be CPA-ready upon date of hire in order to interview for full-time opportunities. However, Yeshiva University cannot vouch for external credits taken AFTER recruiting begins in the Fall semester. In order to recruit with these firms for full-time positions, seniors must have accrued any “additional” credits, outside of the YU accounting departments, before Fall On-Campus Recruiting in October 2016, or be currently enrolled in those courses.
