Include the position title, salary (if appropriate for you), position description, education, and experience requirements. Also: a contact name, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address (if available), and a deadline for applications, if you have one.

Limit your use of abbreviations to commonly understood professional terms. Enter complete information in the job description field.

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 and Changes

  • Enter your ad directly into the online Insertion Form.
  • Please be sure that it is completely correct before hitting the "submit" button.
  • Please contact if your ad needs to be removed 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.


An automatic e-mail notification will be sent to the e-mail address used in the login 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 three months after posting your ad.

To access the database, use the same log-in information that was used to place your ad.
