Company Alumni and Military & Government "Alumni" Group Directory

People who have worked together usually get to know each other fairly well, and can be very good connections for finding that next job. Even someone you didn't know when you were working for the former employer can be a good connection since you probably are very familiar with the corporate culture and may have known many of the same people.  Those people can help you evaluate the new connection.

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 Directory seem to fall into two major categories: independent groups pulled together by volunteers who create a Web site, leverage a social network site like LinkedIn, or use a mailing list like a Yahoo! Group; and those actually sponsored, managed and/or funded by the former employer.

  2. Military Alumni/Veterans' Groups Directory 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 (bottom of this page) are a little sparse right now, but the whole corporate alumni groups list, currently numbering over 250, 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.
