Hi, where can we get careers advice in NY for a Bochur about to complete yeshiva? Thanks in advance!October 16, 2013 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #978989akupermaParticipant
COMPLETE yeshiva. You do realize the Baal ha-Batim learn as well.
Decide what you like to do, and make a career out of it. You’ll be miserable doing something you can’t stand doing, and will probably fail. If you are young, intgelligent and hard working, there is no really limit other than what is prohibited by halacha (e.g. becoming a thief).October 16, 2013 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #978990heretohelpMember
