Meet Laura O'Neill

Laura O'Neill

Binghamton University and Residential Life are excited to welcome back Laura O'Neill as our own in-residence Career and Professional Development Consultant for her third year. Laura's office is located in Susquehanna Community – Choconut 102H and at The Career Corner in Hillside Commons but she is available to meet at other communities as well as the Fleishman Center throughout the week. See her schedule below. While Laura's main focus is the Apartments, she is also providing walk-in hours and programming in Mountainview and College-In-the-Woods.

Laura's main goal is providing outreach and career and professional development education to the residential communities; "We know how busy our students are so we want to make the whole process more convenient and a little less daunting for them. A student's career does not start the day after they graduate from college, it starts their first day of freshman year. We are here to help guide them through their 4 years. It's not just about helping with job search and grad school prep, but the whole journey such as choosing a major, career exploration, internships, resumes, cover letters, networking, interviewing skills to name a few.

Come meet Laura at one of her Walk-in sessions, Career Cafe meetings during the week or schedule an appointment with her through hireBING, see directions for making an appointment below. To make it easier on both traditional and non-traditional students, Laura also has later afternoon and evening hours available.

Meet Lexie Avery

Lexi Avery
Residential Life is excited to welcome Lexie Avery as Career Consultant in Residence. As an extension of the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development, Lexie’s primary office will be located in the Hinman Community – Hinman College Library, 104B, but she will be available in the Fleishman Center and C4, room 101A throughout the week for both appointments and walk-in services.

Lexie’s goal is to provide support and guidance as students discover and explore opportunities and to educate them on the value of their experience in their career journey. The Fleishman Center and Lexie prescribe to the philosophy of ‘Planned Happenstance’, where a career cannot always be predicted. Planned Happenstance, encourages both planned and unplanned opportunities and experiences based on interest with the goal of creating a more satisfying life. There is not one path that students need to follow, and not one career that aligns with a particular major. We make choices along the way that enlighten us and others that peak our curiosity, but all beneficial to our career journey and helps to open the door to what’s next.

Come meet Lexie at one of her walk-in sessions, or schedule an appointment with her through hireBING, see directions for making an appointment below.
