Find a mentor online
Building your career can be exciting but intimidating at the same time. To make it easier for you to transition into the working world, we are providing you with an opportunity to obtain career advice from people who have been exactly where you are, know what you're feeling, and have found their way into a rewarding career.
The Binghamton University Alumni Association is committed to helping current students develop their careers by introducing them to successful alumni in a variety of fields. Much of this networking has been face to face; however, there is a very strong need to facilitate and build these connections online. This is where the Binghamton University Mentoring Program comes in. Through our software platform, you can tap into Binghamton's global alumni network.
During this academic year, we'll make the program available to students in several waves. Harpur Edge has piloted the program, and it is now open to students in the Watson School and the School of Management. As students complete required orientations, they may participate, and we'll continue to actively recruit alumni mentors.
Once you create your account, you can add information about yourself, search for alumni in your field and region, see a list of matches and reach out. Communication between you and your mentor takes place within the platform, but could develop into conversations by email, phone or in person.
