In addition to our distinct three-phase approach (Explore, Experience, Pursue) to career planning, we have extremely high standards for the notion of advising itself. Here, advising has depth with a team of Career Advisors who bring real world experience to the career planning process. Our arts and communication advisor has decades of experience in film and television. Our pre-law advisor is a former practicing attorney. And so on. We even have an advisor who specializes in early-stage career exploration for students who are still deciding on a career path.
Moreover, Bowdoin Career Planning Advising is structured for you as an individual. All advising appointments are with professional staff members, not peer advisors. Although we plan and run many panel discussions, workshops, and presentations for you, we emphasize one-on-one advising. We hope that you will build a strong, supportive, and challenging relationship with your advisor.
