Our Rabbinical School has maintained a 100% rabbinic placement rate for all graduating classes. This success is mainly due to the individual career counseling our students receive throughout their training and to the numerous relationships the yeshiva has made with current and prospective employers in the Jewish world. Furthermore, the remarkable reputation of our alumni contributes to the ease at which YCT graduates are able to find positions.
Students regularly meet with professional development staff to explore their professional opportunities. These meetings examine their strengths, in terms of skills and character, as well as areas for growth, and help clarify for the student what field(s) are appropriate to pursue.
Students receive support in cover letter and resume writing, and participate in simulated interviews with members of actual search committees. They also receive help with contract negotiations and ongoing guidance throughout their job search.
The placement office continues to serve alumni in the field by providing support with career services throughout their rabbinic trajectories.
