Company Alumni and Military & Government "Alumni" Groups

People who have worked together usually get to know each other fairly well, and can be very good connections for finding that next job. In the lists below, "alumni" means former employees only, unless otherwise stated.

Links to alumni groups are provided in 3 major categories. Select the kind of employer alumni group you want from the list below:
  1. Corporate/Company alumni groups seem to fall into three major categories: independent groups pulled together by volunteers who create a Web site or a mailing list (like a Yahoo! Group), those actually sponsored by the former employer, and those which are developed on social network sites like LinkedIn.

  2. Military alumni groups connect members of the U.S. Department of Defense services organizations. Members of the military, particularly those who trained, served in combat, and/or were deployed together, share a bond that is life-long, and many organizations support those networks, across the country.

  3. Government alumni groups are a little sparse right now, but the corporate alumni groups list started at barely 25 a few years ago, so come back if you don't find your government department represented right now. If you know of an active alumni group which is not listed, let us know, and it will be added. If you see a group which is not active or inaccurately listed or described, also let us know so we can fix it. Send info to feedback@Job-Hunt.org.

In case your former employer is not included in the links below, see the additional networking resources at the bottom of the page.

If you know of an active alumni group which is not listed, let us know, and it will be added. If you see a group which is not active or inaccurately listed or described, also let us know so we can fix it. Send info to feedback@Job-Hunt.org.

Additional Networking Resources

If you don't find one of your former employers in the lists above, don't give up. Other venues for groups offer to help you connect with former co-workers as well:

  • Yahoo Groups has the largest collection of groups of "former employees" - over 1,200 of them, but many of them are not very active. Search through this database for your former employer to see if there is an active group.

  • LinkedIn Groups are availabe for corporate alumni. They usually connect members only through LinkedIn, and often include current employees as well as alumni. LinkedIn Groups are more loosely connected in comparison with the other types of alumni groups. Joining a LinkedIn alumni group expands your LinkedIn network to include other members of the alumni group, but your LinkedIn "Connections" does not include all the members of the group simply as a result of joining.

  • Meetup Groups meet face-to-face. The seem to be a bit more ephemeral than other groups, but do offer the opportunity to meet with others who have similar backgrounds or interests. Pick your location and find a compatible group, or start one if there isn't one currently available.

  • ZoomInfo collects and consolidates information from across the Web. ZoomInfo offers the capability to search through their database of profiles by name or by organization and manage your own profile.

  • Jigsaw is a fee-based service that has a database of "business card" information information abou many companies Business card information is provided by company - title, address, phone number and e-mail address. Providing accurate business card information on others can substitute for the access fee.
