The New York Recruiting Alliance, organized by Smith College, Northwestern University, the University of North Carolina and the University of Virginia will be held on February 25, 2013 at the American Management Association in New York City.  It was designed to allow your organization to recruit our graduating students without leaving New York City. 

Each college advertises the program and collects applications.  Resumes of interested students will be mailed directly to you.  You pre-select the students you wish to interview.  Because students pay their own way, you will interview students who are extremely interested in working in New York.  The fee is $450 per schedule ($200 for non-profits), and includes lunch on site.
