The Alumni Association has a series of online resources on a Career Tools webpage. You can learn about and access:
The professional networking functionality from the Alumni Careers Network has been transferred to and significantly enhanced in the new directory, so alumni searching for new jobs or looking up old friends can do so in the same place.
You can find a link to the UChicago Alumni Directory on the menu bar atop every page of the NYC website under the 'UCHICAGO RESOURCES' heading as well as clicking here.
There is a University of Chicago Alumni LinkedIn group that promotes career discussions and provides networking opportunities for all University of Chicago alumni. The group also hosts an alumni job board with opportunities shared by fellow alumni and employers.
