The Davidson Career Advisor Network (DCAN) is a powerful new online platform that facilitates one-to-one career consultations among Davidson College alumni, students, parents, and friends.
To register, you will go to the DCAN platform and complete the five-minute registration process. We recommend importing your professional information from LinkedIn if you have a LinkedIn account, supplementing this information as necessary. Once entered, all of your personal contact information will remain private.
A convenient calendar tool allows you to identify when you are available for consultations. Set your profile to "active" or "inactive" based on your schedule.
Once a student or alumnus/a advisee selects your profile, DCAN takes it from there--from scheduling the phone or online meeting to collecting feedback following the consultation.
There are three ways you can share your expertise:
All Davidson alumni, parents and close friends of the college are eligible and encouraged to volunteer to join DCAN. If we cannot verify your connection to the college, we will reach out to request information on your affiliation before approving your profile.
