The Darden Community (our online alumni directory) has two powerful search engines. The "simple search" works like a Google search – type in a word or two and it will scan key fields for any use of that combination of letters. The detailed search engine allows you to search by a combination of particular fields including graduation year, location, company, industry, job function, and (at the bottom of the search form) keywords. You can search by current employers only or include former employers in the search. For this resource to continue to be powerful, it is important that you keep your own profile current.
A comprehensive list of the Darden Alumni Networking Partners can be found in the Darden Community. On the "detailed search" simply check the "Network Partner" box under "Career Interests" to find the over 6000 alumni who have agreed to be available to Darden students and fellow alumni in researching the job market. To become a Network Partner, please log into the Darden Community, click on "My Profile", select "Edit Your Profile" (on the right next to your name), click on the "Career Interests" tab and check the box next to "Network Partner."
HoosOnline – UVA's alumni community is accessible online as well. Within HoosOnline, the Alumni Directory allows you to search alumni of the greater UVA population by name, location, company, class year, degree, school, major and student activities. Also, under the “Career Center” tab, The University Career Assistance Network (UCAN) includes more than 23,000 UVA alumni who have volunteered to assist fellow Cavaliers seeking career assistance. (Don't forget to become a career contact on UCAN too!) The “HoosNetwork” tab takes you to the “social networking” site exclusive to UVA alumni with the ability to join groups, share opportunities to connect, etc.
