Career Advice Network

The Career Advice Network is a database of hundreds of alumni who have volunteered to be advisors for students and recent graduates. Alumni advisors create a professional profile, which can be set-up in under five minutes by importing your LinkedIn profile, and become a part of a live, searchable database, accessible to students and recent graduates who have signed up as advisees.

How it works:

Advisors and Advisees can connect over three types of consultations: Career Conversations, Resume Critiques, and Mock Interviews. Advisors choose which of these three services they are willing to offer in their specific industries, and set their general time availability. Advisees then search the database to find alumni they would like to connect with and schedule a consultation. All of these consultations are completely free, and happen over a secure network, there is no upfront exchange of information. During the consultation, either party may share their contact information if they would like to continue the mentor relationship.
