Creating a Jobs Online Account

You need not be a member of APA in order to post an ad.

You should create your own account, as we communicate your ad confirmation and link for printing out a payment receipt to the e-mail address used in the log-in process.

Your Online Submission

  • Enter your ad directly into the online Insertion Form.
  • Please be sure that it is completely correct before hitting the "submit" button.
  • Please contact CustomerService@planning.org if your ad needs to be pulled before the end of the listing period that you requested. Please note that you WILL NOT receive a rebate as a result of this request.

Confirmations

An automatic e-mail notification will be sent to the email address used in the log-in to place the ad. This will inform you that your ad is submitted successfully, and will include a link to a receipt for your credit card payment. You should print out a copy of this receipt for your records.

Tear sheets (or copies) of ads placed online are available only for the length of time an ad is online — 2, 3, or 4 weeks. We encourage all employers to print out a copy of each ad for their records, while the ad is online.

Resume Database

You will be able to search our APA Member Resume Database for 3 months after posting your ad.

You should use the same log-in information used to place your ad, in order to access the database.
