The Yeshiva University Career Center has announced the 2014-2015 recipients of its annual Partners of the Year Awards.
The awards recognize the alumni, employers, and campus professionals who have partnered with the Career Center to help guide students on their career paths, connect them with job opportunities, and provide them with advice on how to succeed in the workplace.
These recipients have dedicated themselves to mentoring students on their journey toward a successful career. “The YU community benefits greatly from our wonderful network of alumni and employers who are frequently willing to offer their time, energy, and insight,” said Marc Goldman, executive director of the Career Center. “Their proactive efforts and program participation on the part of YU students in addition to advocacy on YU’s behalf at their organizations play a vital role in the success of our current students and recent graduates.”
This year, Teresa Bayewitz, a principal consultant at Mercer, was honored for mentoring female students through the Women in Business Initiative and helping create internal teambuilding for recruiting efforts at YU. David Steiner, a Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, was recognized for being a key partner in his firm’s on-campus recruiting at YU, serving on recruitment preparation panels and advising YU students in their job search. Bayewitz and Steiner were both presented with the Alumni Partner of the Year Award.
The Campus Partner of the Year Award was given to the Beren Campus Student Life Committee for their help in improving the scheduling for the Career Center’s counseling appointments and creating the opportunity for students to provide feedback about their appointments.
