Industry

The most popular career sector among alumni is the software development industry.

Gender

There is a sizable difference between men's post-college salaries and women's: the median for the former is $78K, but the median for the latter is only around $61K.

Jobs

In the Binghamton University alumni professional community, Chief Financial Officers make the highest median pay ($193K), though Quality Assurance Engineers (approximately $101K), and Senior Software Engineers (about $96K) are close competitors. Salaries are anything but generous for Administrative Assistants, whose earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at $28K.

Locations

Many Binghamton University students are New York, N.Y.-bound following college. Another city that attracts a wealth of Binghamton University grads is Atlanta, Ga.; given its high compensation (about $98K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Though Vestal, N.Y. takes the cake for lowest pay among Binghamton University grads (the median salary is $51K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Binghamton, N.Y. and Washington, DC are popular choices as well.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for Binghamton University grads with a Bachelor of Accountancy (BAcc), Accounting (average earnings climb to $190K per year). Graduates holding a Bachelor of Science in Human Development fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of $38K.

Skills

Binghamton University grads with Engineering Design experience garner salaries that are 21 percent more than other grads' salaries. Around one in seven Binghamton University grads wind up using Microsoft Excel at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Competency in Project Management, SQL, and Microsoft Office also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni earn paid vacation and just one-fourth of alumni get paid sick time. Health benefits extend to most alums, and a strong majority of alums also receive dental coverage. Most former students save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Binghamton University graduates also take advantage of life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
