Know and Be Known
Connect with interesting people to learn more about them.
Networking is not asking for a job, but often leads to the connections that can help you land the job you want. More Bowdoin students find their jobs and internships through networking than by any other method.
Know what you want to learn, and list the people who can tell you about it.
People love talking about themselves and what they do. That said, you have to carefully manage your contacts: make sure you present yourself professionally and thank the people with whom you connect.
Bowdoin alumni are genuinely excited to help students who express interest in their career field.
