It's not difficult to stay in touch with people via LinkedIn or Facebook or Ashley Madison or whatever, but if you're looking for a more personal touch to your professional network, and you just happen to be an Andersen Alum (or wish you were), there's Andersen Alumni.

In this post from eFinancialCareers that discusses the plight of maybe-soon-to-be former SAC employees, it states what most of us already know — Andersen employees didn't have any problems finding gainful employment in the wake of their firm going down for the dirt nap, so SACsters shouldn't worry too much:

There haven't been any more details shared on the account but we're hoping this is some sort of exciting adventure — Andersen Burning Man?! — because someone really needs to rejuvenate this thing.
