“I used CAN to contact an alum in the Los Angeles area. While home on vacation, we arranged a meeting, she set me up with contacts, and now I’m headed to LA to work. She gave me real advice, about the industry and about life after BU. It was great.”
—Jessica Payne (COM’03)

“Elizabeth Sarley, CAS ’13 reached out to me via CAN for an informational interview. At the time, I was building my communications department and Liz was the perfect fit. She began as a fellow in the fall, and we were so impressed with her, she was offered a permanent position a few months later. I have continued to watch her grow as we’ve both moved onto new organizations, and I am so proud to have helped a fellow Terrier enter the workforce post-graduation.”
—Cara Willis (CAS ’08)
