Who we are:
A unique job placement service created by the Orthodox Union for the
Jewish community-at-large that brings potential employers and
applicants together, and hones the skills of those seeking employment
and employers seeking to fill their open jobs .
* Now possibly the largest Jewish Job Board in North America.
* Since its March inception, the Job Board has posted close to 6,000
jobs and has resulted in an estimated 500 + job placements through the
applicants direct contact with the employers. An active list of over
1000 companies, organizations and non-profits receive weekly mailing
* From the outset, a partnership with FEGS (Federation Employment and
Guidance Service) called ParnossahWorks, made a high level of
professional expertise available to job seekers. Over the past 3 years
700+ people have been gainfully employed using OU-ParnossahWorks
system. Additionally hundreds of other jobs requiring this placement
service system are listed for those in the Greater New York area

NJ; and Toronto, as well as the New York Council of Jewish
Organizations and the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty. All of
these organizations have provided job placement services and/or workshops.
* The OU Job Board is a pioneer in Virtual Job Fairs, in which
employer's interview pre-screened applicants by video conference. Two
recent Job Fairs saw 83 people placed in new jobs, over 1200 resumes
processed, and more than 100 resume re-writes provided.

Veterans Affairs, the head recruiter of the Department of Labor and
many others have visited the Job Fairs and complimented them on their
efficiency and high level of success.

getting people jobs directly off the boards at 8-10%. Some 150 active
employers regularly use the OU Job Board to find their new employees.
