CDC offers programs throughout the semester to which graduate students are invited. In cooperation with the Graduate School and the Graduate Community of Scholars, CDC also offers programs to address the needs of graduate students. See the calendar of upcoming programs.
Through the Binghamton University Alumni Association Professional Network on LinkedIn, you can tap an expansive group of fellow alumni for networking. If you're a current student looking to learn about career fields, expand your professional network, and or improve you job search strategy, we encourage you to join the LinkedIn subgroup specifically for student-to-alumni professional networking. Included in the Student-to-Alumni Professional Network subgroup is a network of Binghamton alumni who have volunteered to be contacted by current students regarding their career. Alumni network volunteers can provide information and assistance whether you are conducting a job search, considering graduate school or contemplating a career change. Although the Network is not an employment or placement program, it is designed to help you connect with alumni and tap their talents and insight.
Numerous resources are available to assist you in writing a resume, vitae, or cover letter and preparing for interviews. Have a draft of your documents reviewed during Counselor-On-Call hours. Attend CDC events such as the Job & Internship Fair. Employers also provide job and career advice through presentations (check your eRecruiting account for dates/times).
All matriculated graduate students have an account for this web-based system that connects candidates with employers who wish to consider Binghamton University students for jobs and internships. The Office of Financial Aid also posts on and off campus part time jobs on eRecruiting. Login to your eRecruiting account today!

This list is far from exhaustive and we encourage you to visit the Career Library located in CDC South, LSG500 to view our entire selection or search by subject on the CDC Library database.
