Embark: Start Your Journey Here

The UVA Dual Career Program introduces Embark, a new community resource to connect highly skilled talent with local employers. We've teamed up with collaborators across the University of Virginia, The City of Charlottesville, and Albemarle County to create a unique space for connection.

For newcomers: Explore the opportunities that Central Virginia has to offer and learn why we love to call Charlottesville home.

For job seekers: Get the tools you need to network, research local employers, and find your next career.

For employers: Increase your visibility with our growing talent pipeline and help job seekers learn what sets your company apart.
