Recruiter - How to post US jobs (If you are an HPAA member, please go here.)
The Hewlett-Packard Alumni Association has members from a wide range of functions, including administration, business planning, consulting, customer support, engineering, environmental, engineering services, facilities, finance, human resources, information technology, legal, manufacturing, marketing, marketing support, operations, quality, public relations, sales, sales operations, training...
HPAA members are primarily located in the US. 80% of the members are located outside Silicon Valley. To reach HP alumni outside the US, please check our list of the many independent clubs, forums, and websites for former HP people around the world. Many carry job postings. HPAA's Social and Networking Directory
The HPAA carries US jobs posted at no charge by recruiters, employers, and fellow members specifically interested in HP alumni.
If you are a recruiter who is not an HP alumnus, you may apply to post jobs to HPAA Members
Posts are accepted at no charge. However, we do require that job posts follow the rules given below.
Once you have been approved to post, you can post a given job on the HPAA's Jobs email distribution list, which uses a Yahoo group. Please email your job posts to: email@example.com
These rules are generally applicable to all online job posting systems. If you post jobs elsewhere, you shouldn't have to modify your posts for posting to HPAA members.
This is strictly for specific job openings posted by HPAA members and recruiters. Other posts, such as network marketing solicitations, franchise offerings, or general business opportunities are not accepted. Please do not submit generic "I'm hiring" posts -- they will not be released.
The subject line is the key to getting results.
Please follow these guidelines so that members can quickly scan the
large number of posts:
Please follow the subject line format to ensure that people don't miss your post when they are quickly scanning.
▪ Limit the subject
line to 64 characters. Those of our members who check the posts
using a browser only see the first 64 letters of the subject line.
The members who receive the posts via email use various email programs
and online email readers
and have varying screen

yourself and your role at the
beginning of the post.
Due to concerns about identity theft and résumé-collecting,
our members are very reluctant to respond to job openings posted by
people who are unwilling to fully identify themselves.
Bullets, boldface, logos, and other word-processing embellishments are automatically deleted or simplified. Just use ordinary plain text not HTML or RTF.
Attachments (Word and PDF files, etc.) are automatically removed to prevent the transmission of viruses.
Implied age discrimination. To discourage age discrimination and help recruiters avoid inadvertently violating the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the HPAA may reject job posts that imply age discrimination. This policy is followed by other professional organizations, including the IEEE. Examples of unacceptable phrases: "Recent college grad," "1 to 5 years maximum experience," "1-5 years of experience", "Up to 5 years experience."
Privacy. We do not accept non-government job posts that require a Social Security Number for initial contact.
Posting frequency. To keep the group as effective as possible for members and recruiters, an unfilled job may not be reposted in less than four weeks.
If you made an error, repost with "- Revised" in the subject line. The "Recall" command doesn't work outside your own company.
How to post
Please take the time to write a careful subject line including the location so that the people who qualify don't miss the message.
There will be up to a 72-hour delay before your submissions are approved by our volunteer team and emailed to our members.
If you have questions, please contact: HPAA Careers Director
Replies sent to those who post must be limited to inquiries and résumés in response to a specific job opening.
Virus protection. HPAA's forums have the Yahoo Groups
anti-virus and anti-phishing measures enabled:
