Volunteering in Career Services
UCAN: UAlbany Career Advisory Network
UCAN is an online network of UAlbany alumni volunteers who provide advice and guidance to students and fellow alumni about career planning. UCAN allows you to be an invaluable resource with a minimal time commitment.
Access the network through UAlbany’s online community. Advisees use the network’s customized search function to select advisor profiles based on their professional interests.
To volunteer, follow two simple steps:
1. Go to the UAlbany alumni online community homepage. If you haven't already registered for the community, do so.
2. In the “I Want To” box located in the right column, click on: "Access UCAN: UAlbany Career Advisory Network” and complete an advisory posting.
How Advisees Will Contact You
The online community is a password-protected environment, available exclusively to UAlbany alumni and students. You will initially be contacted by email. Because we recognize how busy our alumni are, you are allowed to determine how often you’re contacted, and your email address is always concealed. If you get busy, you can put your mentor status on hold.
Contact Melissa Samuels, director of Alumni Programs, at (518) 442-3083 or email@example.com.
