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.
