The MIT Institute Career Assistance Network (ICAN)

The Institute Career Assistance Network (ICAN) connects MIT alumni with each other and with students to facilitate career strategies, gather quality advice, and open up important networking connections. More than 3,000 alumni across an array of fields have offered to share their wealth of experience as advisors. Advisors may communicate by telephone, e-mail, or in personal meetings.

As a member of the ICAN, I see tremendous value in the college alumni network. If you're plugged into your college alumni network, what are you waiting for? Find your classmates on social networking websites like Facebook or LinkedIn. You can probably find classmates by using Google too. Discover what they're doing and reconnect. Learn from their stories. Get inspired. Ask them to introduce you to other executives in their professional network.
