Search CAN

Search the Career Advisory Network for networking opportunities.

Choosing a career, changing careers, or relocating may be difficult, and talking with a Boston University alumnus about his or her experiences can help. The Career Advisory Network is not a job-search resource, but instead offers valuable networking opportunities with other Terriers.

What can CAN do for me?

Alumni advisors in the Career Advisory Network are available to talk with you informally, share their experiences, and help you clarify your career goals. Advisors will be glad to speak with you about:

  • How they got started in their professions
  • Their job responsibilities and working environments
  • Graduate school
  • Employment trends in their fields
  • Networking suggestions
  • Relocating

You can use the Career Advisory Network to access alumni employed in a variety of fields. After reviewing their profile listings, you may contact specific alumni to set up a time to talk, or you may prefer to e-mail alumni with specific questions. Please review the guidelines carefully after you login.
