Helping alumni career development

The inaugural Binghamton Success Week was held Tuesday–Thursday, April 18–20.

This event series provided opportunities for alumni to gain valuable career advice from successful Binghamton University graduates who are passionate about helping others. To make the programming available to alumni globally, Binghamton Success Week was a hybrid event.

The webinar “How to Consider and Confidently Pursue a Career Pivot” was held April 18, with Rachel Serwetz ’13, CEO and founder of WOKEN and certified career coach, as featured speaker.

An in-person Metro New York Career Panel took place April 19 at the SUNY College of Optometry in Manhattan. The panelists were:

  • Dan Black ’94, moderator, global leader of talent attraction and acquisition, Ernst & Young
  • Robye Margolius ’93, career counselor for legal talent, Arnold & Porter
  • Karissa Parris ’14, talent acquisition leader and career coach, The Relatable Recruiter
  • Robert Hellmann ’84, career and executive coach, Hellmann Career Consulting

Serwetz spoke at the April 20 webinar “Learn to Strategically Network and Lead a Compelling Interview.”

Each of the online sessions drew more than 100 alumni, and nearly 50 people attended the in-person panel discussion. The webinars are viewable on the Binghamton Learning Network website.
