Binghamton University's Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development provides
a wealth of services and resources to help your Binghamton student plan for life's
many career transitions. As you probably know from personal experience, career preparation
happens inside and outside the classroom. One's career path does not emerge solely
through the study of a particular undergraduate major, but through a combination of
variables and experiences.
An undergraduate major does not define or limit what and who someone can become. Whether
they begin college with a clearly defined career goal or enter 'undecided' about a
major and career direction, chances are your student's thoughts and passions will
shift during their four years of college. This is normal. The important thing is that
they actively engage in their university experience, explore and test their interests,
gain skills and competencies that employers want, and reflect on what they learn.
The Fleishman Career Center's staff is eager to assist your Binghamton student in
learning about careers, gaining career-related experience, preparing for graduate/professional
school and finding a job. We work with undergraduates and graduate students of all
majors in all Binghamton University's schools/colleges and offer workshops, events,
walk-in assistance, and individual counseling to help your student explore careers,
choose a major, find a job, get an internship, write a resume, develop effective interviewing
skills, and apply to graduate school.
We hope the information provided in the "Parents" section of our website will help
you become more familiar with our services, gain insight into how you can best support
your student with career issues, and learn how you can help the Fleishman Center for
Career and Professional Development.
