Make the Most of Your CareerShift Account

My Contacts
Using the My Contacts tab in CareerShift, you can find alumni in a particular field beyond those who are in Binghamton University’s LinkedIn Alumni page. Search by person or organization. If you are seeking a contact within a specific company with whom you can conduct an informational interview, you can search in the contacts section to find the appropriate individual.

My Documents
Upload your resume/CV and cover letter for easy online access. Use the online document editing tool that allows you to quickly edit saved documents for re-sending. If you need to change an address or revise your experiences/skills, CareerShift allows these edits to existing files within the system without having to upload a new document.

My Campaigns
Set up email campaigns to follow-up on previous applications. As you apply for jobs and acquire contacts, you can add them to the “My Contacts” section. Using a “campaign” you can send personalized mass emails (or print versions) of your resume and cover letter to your contacts.

My Calendar
Schedule reminders to follow up with potential employers and contacts. CareerShift will remind you to contact them via email. If you have a series of interviews coming up, CareerShift can remind you to prepare and conduct research beforehand.

My Jobs
Search thousands of opportunities from employer websites, published job listings, professional association sites, and other search engines. CareerShift does not pull job opportunities through Craig’s List or similar databases.

When using this tool to find opportunities, the keyword search is extremely important. Pay specific attention to what titles companies are using to describe their positions.
