Fleishman Center develops data-driven tool that breaks down earnings and employment by Binghamton University major

The Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development has launched a new interactive website, BingCareerDestinations.com, featuring a breakdown of employment and continuing education plans of recent Binghamton University graduates.

Users can explore career outcomes and real salary data of Binghamton University graduates, rather than just state or national averages. Data points include places of employment, position titles, graduate schools, average salary and internship sites for some majors. The information presented shows aggregate career outcomes data of graduating seniors from the last three years (2015-2017).

Denise Lorenzetti, Director of the Fleishman Center, said she is thrilled to add this tool to the Center's portfolio of useful resources students can use to connect their major to careers and research options tailored to the experiences of their peers. "We hope students find this new tool helpful throughout their entire career planning process. Offering concrete examples of employers and job titles of recent Binghamton graduates can help dispel the notion some hold that majors dictate limited career options," said Lorenzetti.

Many students on campus approach the Fleishman Center seeking this type of outcomes information. As the University's centralized career office, the Fleishman Center conducts over 7,200 career consulting appointments annually; one in four sessions presents an opportunity to review career data with students.

Current and prospective students, as well as their families, can utilize BingCareerDestinations.com to help make informed decisions about their education and financial future. Salary information from recent Binghamton University graduates can also give students a solid starting point in salary negotiations.

Binghamton University has worked hard to develop an innovative tool providing this level of information at the major level. The website currently provides data for 32 majors; majors with fewer than 11 students are omitted to protect privacy. With transparency in mind, our goal is to be able to provide salary, employment, and further education information for every major offered by Binghamton University.
