Resources

School of Management Career Services has a number of resources available to SOM students to help them on their path to a career.

Here are just some of the ways our office can help: 

  • Résumé and cover letter templates

    Your résumé is the first tool for letting an employer know you're interested in a job. Without it, you can't apply, and without a great résumé, you will get passed over for the position. Our office has samples you can reference to ensure your résumé and cover letter follow SOM guidelines.

  • Elevator pitch

    Your elevator pitch is a tool for introducing yourself at career fairs, networking opportunities and during the "tell me about yourself" question of an interview. It should be able to answer these questions:

    • Who am I?
    • What can I offer?
    • Why am I here?
    • What do I hope happens in the future?
  • Mock interview

    Mock interviews are an opportunity for students to practice and strengthen their interview skills as well as receive constructive feedback. Schedule a mock interview with a Career Assistant by completing this form or with a Career Counselor in hireBING.

  • HireBING

    HireBING (powered by HandShake) connects students, alumni and employers for jobs and internships. Use hireBING to post your resume, search for jobs and internships, and participate in upcoming interview/recruitment events. Learn more about hireBING.

  • SOM Career Services Student Resource Drive

    School of Management students have exclusive Google Drive access to our Student Resource Drive. The drive includes many invaluable and up-to-date resources, including résumé templates, professional development guides, news regarding upcoming important events, jobs/internship postings and more!

    Reach out to somcs@binghamton.edu with questions about student resource drive access.

  • Vault guides

    School of Management students have free access to Vault, a career information web site that provides employee surveys of top employers, career advice, job listings, and career guides to individual industries.

    Log in to Vault to access its free resources and services.

  • Workshop series

    Career Services regularly holds workshops covering a variety of topics. Students should check the events calendar and hireBING for more details, dates and to register.

  • GoinGlobal
    GoinGlobal is an online database containing the latest worldwide employment trends and industry outlooks from 16 million job postings across the United States and 40+ countries. Information is also available about work permits, regulations, salary ranges, cost of living, resume/CV guidelines, interview tips and cultural advice.
