Bowdoin StudentsThe Bowdoin Career Advisory Network (BCAN) is made up of Bowdoin Alumni who volunteer to be available for other Bowdoin Alumni and current Bowdoin students to share information regarding their career path, job-hunting strategies unique to their field, and other useful career related advice.

One of Bowdoin's largest alumni volunteer initiatives, BCAN is a dynamic community that allows you to share your time and expertise. BCAN is made up of 5000+ alumni from a huge variety of professional backgrounds and geographic areas who have volunteered to be contacts for networking purposes. Bowdoin alumni and students can find connections and communicate through two searchable databases, BCAN Directory through Alumni Relations (formerly PolarNet) and LinkedIn.
