Young Jewish Professionals
Frequently Asked Questions

What is the YJP Employment Advancement Program?
From its humble beginnings in 2008, the Young Jewish Professionals has developed into a legendary organization focused on improving the social and professional lives of New York City’s young Jewish professionals. As the most prominent and well known group of our kind, we are often contacted by leading New York firms looking to hire talented young professionals. As we realized the increasing need for an initiative to match employers and young professionals, we opened this division to create an employment platform for our members.

How does the program work?
All applications are reviewed and entered into a central database. When the YJP is contacted by a firm with an available position, we contact any applicant who has expressed an interest in this area of employment, and connect them with the hiring firm.

Can only Jewish people apply?
No. Applications are open to all people, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, ancestry, gender, marital status, disability, religious or political affiliation, age or orientation. All applicants are considered solely on their professional merits.

Is this program only open to New Yorkers?
While we do have plans to extend the YJP’s Employment Advancement Program into a nationwide program, at this time we are only managing jobs based in the New York metropolitan area.

Do I need to be a YJP member?
This program is open to YJP members and non-members alike, but we do give preference to our members.

Are there any costs involved?
No, this is a free service.

What is the catch?
There is none. The YJP is a 501(c)3 charity dedicated to improving the social and professional lives of New York City’s young and Jewish professionals, and we are providing this program as part of our mission.

Are jobs guaranteed to all applicants?
No. As jobs become available to the YJP, we contact the applicants who are seeking those jobs and connect them with the firm seeking to hire. All hiring decisions are determined by the firm offering the job, and not by the YJP.
