Career Development Volunteers

We welcome alumni volunteerism in career development programs offered through the schools and the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development. As a Binghamton graduate, you'll find it very rewarding to engage with students by offering advice to assist them on their career journey. We have a variety of ways for you to connect with students which include coming back to campus, connecting with students virtually, or meeting students near your workplace.

 

Recruit Binghamton students for jobs or internships:

  • Post a job or internship on hireBING
  • Attend on-campus fairs
  • Interview students on campus
  • Hold an on-campus or virtual company information session

Assist students in the their career and professional development:

  • Participate in Student Career Development Programs – (Mock interviews, resume reviews, job search, or networking, etc.)
  • Be a mentor - Offer guidance and advice to students (on a panel, in a classroom, in a one-on-one or group setting - either on campus or virtually )
  • Host an on-site visit at your company
  • Allow students to job shadow in your workplace

Also, because LinkedIn is such a powerful and popular career networking tool, the Alumni Association is committed to leveraging the site for alumni-to-alumni and student-to-alumni networking. We encourage you to join the Alumni Association Professional Network group, a forum for peer networking as well as mentoring to current students.
