Laura O'Neill
Binghamton University and Residential Life are excited to have Laura O'Neill as our own in-residence Career and Professional Development Consultant. 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 four 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 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 has later afternoon and evening hours available.

Laura's Schedule

  • Walk-ins: 5–7 p.m. on Mondays in Hillside Commons
  • In-person and virtual appointments: Schedule on hireBING/Handshake
