Help current students with their job and internship searches

 

As the economy continues its slow climb upward, current students at Binghamton University are trying to navigate the job and internship market. This is where you can help. 

The Career Development Center (CDC) is looking to Binghamton alumni to assist students in securing internships and jobs. We encourage you and your employers to take part in the upcoming events.

Metro Career Night - Wednesday, Jan. 12
Fashion Institute of Technology, Manhattan
The Alumni Association and CDC invite you to meet in person with students looking to engage in informational interviews. Last January, about 300 students sought the opportunity to meet with Binghamton graduates working in a wide variety of career fields. This event will only take a few hours of your time, but could give a much-needed boost to a student looking to develop his or her professional network. If you're interested in participating, register online now. If you have any questions about this event, contact Melinda Holicky, assistant director of alumni relations.

On Campus Job Fairs - Spring 2011
Because you have earned a degree from Binghamton University, you know that our students are among the best and brightest. We ask you to encourage your employer to recruit Binghamton students at one or both of the following on-campus job fairs. These are great ways to meet students in person and discuss job and internships within your organization.

1) Job and Internship Fair - Thursday, Feb. 9
Events Center, Binghamton University
This event is open to all students who are looking for a job or internship. See what the fair looks like in the Events Center and register your organization now.

"Binghamton puts out good students every year and I think that [our] alumni are some of the best professionals out there," said Douglas Centola '08, internal audit advisory associate for Big Four accounting firm KPMG. Centola represented KPMG at a previous career fair on campus.

2) Nursing Forum - March 14
Mandela Room, University Union
The Nursing Forum is the opportunity to meet Decker School of Nursing students seeking jobs and externships. Register today for the Nursing Forum.

For more information on either event, contact Eileen Bauer-Hagerbaumer, assistant director for employer relations. 

Job and Internship Listings
In addition to job fairs, there are other ways alumni can help students in their job and internship searches:

"The Alumni Career Network opened a door for me to the real business world," said Yinzi Liang '10. "I contacted several alumni this past summer, and it was surprising how they were delighted to hear from one of the current Bearcats. They were welcoming and friendly and answered all my questions. One of the alumni and I even planned to set up a phone appointment for a talk. One thing they made me realize was that your major doesn't [define] you, and being passionate about what you do is the key to whichever career path you want to pursue."

"The Alumni Career Network gave me the opportunity to figure out what other graduates have done with their psychology major," said Heather Fink '11. "The alumni were helpful and informed me about the different jobs and graduate school options available for psychology majors. I recommend this tool for any student who is trying to figure out what to do [after] graduation."

For more information on how alumni can assist with job fairs, nursing forums and other employer engagement see our Alumni Wanted brochure or call the CDC at 607-777-2553. Perhaps a Binghamton graduate helped you land an internship or job. Now is your chance to do the same for someone else.
