Watson Career and Alumni Connections

A note to our Watson students for the 2020-21 academic year:

In order to maintain the health of our WCAC staff and Watson students and adhere to social distancing guidelines, all student appointments and professional development workshops will be held virtually for the fall semester!

What does that mean for you?:

  • Student counselors and/or professional staff will be in the L-Pod of the Engineering Building every day from 9am-5pm, but students will be directed to make appointments online whenever possible. 
  • If you have an appointment scheduled for a future date and time, your counselor will email you a calendar invite with your Zoom log-in link.
  • You can log-into your appointment from anywhere rather than come to the office. You can choose to hold a video or audio chat appointment.

You can make an appointment to have your resume or cover letter reviewed, conduct a mock interview or to discuss your general career planning questions. 


Please remember that WCAC is here to serve you! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to a staff member directly or be emailing wcac@binghamton.edu
