In March 2014, the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development (previously the Career Development Center) opened its doors to students in its new location. Once located in the basement of Glenn G. Bartle Library, the Fleishman Center now resides in the heart of campus in the new University Union. The space includes state-of-the-art technology to help staff deliver programs and services more efficiently to students and offer unique opportunities to engage with alumni and employers.
The new center features a welcoming lobby for students to meet with consulting staff during daily Walk-In services; a large hi-tech presentation room; and several private employer interview suites with built-in video conference capability that are all available upon student or employer requests.
The Fleishman Center recognizes Steve Fleishman ’91 and Judith (Judy) Garczynski Fleishman ’90 for their generosity and leadership in support of the Center. Steve says he and his wife wanted to help students turn their education and hard work into jobs and careers after graduation. A bit of a “Career Center junkie” as a student, Steve had used the Center to learn how to write a resume and cover letter, and gain internship experience. When he recommended the Center to his friends, many had no idea it existed. In fact, Judy, a psychology major, did not know about the Career Center until her senior year.
Annually, the Center offers more than 700 skills development programs and workshops, and hosts nearly 2,500 on-campus interviews. The Fleishman Center has become integral to the Binghamton University student experience and is now the first stop on campus tours and featured at Freshman and Transfer Orientations, assuring all students that we invest in their futures.
