Be Aware: Some NYU Job Fair employers capping number of resumes they receive

Last year, many employers at the NYU Public Service Job Fair were inundated with resumes, with several employers receiving close to 2,000 applications for interviews. This year, a cap of 500 resumes will be enforced for those employers who request it. Accordingly, for capped employers, applications will be accepted from only the first 500 students who apply to the employer. The online system will work on a first come, first served basis. Once a capped employer has received 500 applications through the system, the system will tell a student seeking to apply to that employer that the employer is full and will not permit additional applications.

Accordingly, it is very important for a student who has a strong interest in an employer to register for the Job Fair and upload a resume to that employer as soon as possible. Registration for the Job Fair is now open.

To date, the employers listed below have requested to receive no more than 500 applications this year:

Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law
Federal Defender of New York for the Eastern District of New York
New York Attorney General’s Office
New York County District Attorney’s Office
Legal Aid Society — Criminal Practice
Legal Aid Society — Civil Practice
Legal Aid Society — Juvenile Rights Practice
