Sharing your story will inspire and encourage current students! We continuously hear from students about how much they look forward to opportunities to learn more about how fellow Bearcats have turned their Binghamton degree into a career. Students will benefit immensely from your wisdom and advice. Alumni have contributed to the Fleishman Career Center in the following ways:
- Sharing advice. How did you get your first job out of college? What was it like moving to a new city? How do you manage work/life balance? What surprised you the most about starting your career? Sharing advice about topics like these will help students prepare well for the working world.
- Industry insights. Is there a certain skill or ability that gives a professional a leg up in your industry? Are there any trends on the horizon that students should be aware of? Tell us! This insight helps students stay knowledgeable about the industries they’re hoping to enter and gives them tips for success.
- College to career stories. Was there a certain club, class or on-campus job that really helped you to get to where you are today? Did your job with campus rec help you find a passion for sports management, or did an event you ran for the Cheese Club become a big talking point in your job interview? We’d love to hear about it! These stories inspire our students and help them see how their campus involvement can help them make career moves.
