Join the HPAA networking groups on LinkedIn (recommended)

These instructions apply if you already have a LinkedIn account. If you don't have a LinkedIn account, please go here.

Membership in LinkedIn groups, such as the HPAA's groups, improves your ability to use LinkedIn's search feature to reconnect with people who know you and your work -- or to find ex-HPers where you would like to work.

Even if you are retired or otherwise not currently looking for a job, we recommend that you join both of our networking groups on LinkedIn.

(If retired, LinkedIn helps you reconnect with people you have lost touch with over the years.)

Our volunteers cannot add you to the HPAA groups on LinkedIn – you have to join through the LinkedIn system.

For best results, we recommend that you join both of these HPAA groups on LinkedIn:

- "Hewlett-Packard Alumni Association." Limited to HPAA members. To join, go to: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/16 and click the "Ask to join" button on the far right. You may need to expand your browser window or scroll to the right.

- "HP Connections." Reconnect with former co-workers. Career issues. Post job openings. 81,000 members. Open to current employees and alumni of HP, HPI, HPE, acquisitions, and spinoffs. To join:  https://www.linkedin.com/groups/84543 and click the "Ask to join" button on the far right. If you are already a member of that group, it will display "Member" with a checkmark. Take a moment to click the gear icon and check your settings for that group.

You may also want to join additional HPAA LinkedIn groups.

- "EDS Alumni." For former employees of Electronic Data Systems Corp. Reconnect -- plus benefits, finance, and career issues specifically related to EDS service. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/60016

- "HP Alumni - SF Bay Area." For current and former HP employees living in the Bay Area. Reconnect -- plus local live events. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/2077843  

- "HP Connections - Canada." For current and former HP employees who served in Canada. Reconnect -- plus benefits and transition issues. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4358315  

To get the most from LinkedIn, use HPAA's LinkedIn Tips and Traps.

What happens next?  Allow a few days for our volunteers to approve your requests. Then, both the "HP Alumni" and "HP Connections" logos will appear on your LinkedIn profile. And you will be able to find and reconnect with your former co-workers.
