Orthodox Union Job Fairs, which have been held both in the United States and Israel, are uniformly successful, because employers have jobs to offer, and the candidates who register have had their resumes screened to make certain that they qualify for positions that are being offered. There is no aimless wandering around, and no one’s time is wasted.
The Job Fairs are programs of the OU Job Board | Employment and Resumé Opportunities.
So it was no surprise that the Job Fair held August 30 in Borough Park, Brooklyn, a neighborhood with a multiplicity of yeshivot and synagogues, resulted in a typically large attendance of 450, including both candidates and employers. Not surprisingly, because it happens at every OU Job Fair, at least four candidates were hired on the spot, with many others being called back for second interviews.
Here is part of the large gathering of job candidates and employers at the Fair.
Jewish organizations were represented….
…and non-Jewish organizations, including the Aflac duck.
The local Maimonides Medical Center didn’t have far to travel to recruit at the Fair.
The OU, represented by Orah Alon of Human Resources, was a potential employer.
