Several US employers have announced they will not be hiring any future Columbia University graduates. The move is in response to student protests over the Ivy League school’s relationship with Israeli institutions, which has seen campus brought to a standstill over the last month.

Demonstrations against Israeli military operations in Gaza have spread nationwide across US college campuses in recent weeks, with New York’s Columbia University becoming the epicentre of student protests, leaving some prospective employers far from happy.
