Resources for Recent Grads

Congratulations to the Class of 2017!  Some of you may still be exploring career paths or looking for your first job. Alumni Career Engagement has created a menu of resources to help you achieve your goals:


The Alumni Career Engagement website is your central hub, organized by both life stage and topic.  Check out content curated specifically for New Grads and Rising Professionals.

Take advantage of our many job search and “next step” resources, including grad school planning resources, resume and cover letter tips, alumni-specific networking resources, career events and webinars, a list of targeted job boards, and more.


Find and apply for jobs and create a personalized job search in UVAlumniJOBS.  With more than 3000 employer contacts in the system, UVAlumniJOBS offers targeted job postings specifically for UVA alumni of all experience levels.

While you are logged in, you can also practice for an upcoming interview using the mock interview tool, schedule a career advising session, or find more jobs and contacts through CareerShift.

Career Advising Appointments

We offer individual career advising appointments by phone and Skype, as well as in person, so we can meet with you even if you are no longer in Charlottesville. Use advising appointments for help with your job search strategy, resume and cover letter construction, graduate/professional school planning and essay writing, interview prep, mock interviews, and more.

Online advising chats are also available during scheduled times.


Alumni Career Engagement hosts 2 online networking chats each month during the academic year, with opportunities to chat with fellow alumni by industry.

We offer many more networking resources and coaching to help you find contacts and communicate with confidence.


Presented by UVA alumni experts, Friday Forum Webinars provide information to enhance your professional, career, and personal success. Register online to join these interactive presentations: all you need is your computer or mobile device and an Internet connection.
