A little over 20 years ago I started the HR Network to share job leads with a few of my friends and colleagues. Now this community consists of several thousand Human Resources professionals in Oregon and Washington and we’re expanding!
The HR Network helps employers quickly attract a pool of qualified, local candidates. Jobs that are posted on this website are also emailed to a large list of HR professionals, generally within 24 hours, to ensure postings get a wide and timely distribution to potential candidates. At $50 per job posting, the HR Network is a quick and cost-effective way to find the candidates you are looking to hire.
Membership is free and open to all human resources and recruiting professionals in Oregon and Washington. Students who are planning to pursue a career in HR and people who are transitioning into HR from another field are welcome too.
We define HR jobs broadly. There just needs to be a significant human resources element to the job. Job opportunities may include:
- HR leadership: managers, directors, vice presidents
- HR generalists, business partners
- Talent acquisition: recruiters, sourcers
- Total rewards professionals: benefits, compensation, payroll
- Employee relations, labor relations, health and safety
- Talent development: training, organizational development, professional coaching, career counseling
- HR consultants
- Staffing agency professionals
- Internal communications, general management, administrative professionals
Jobs can be full-time, part-time, temporary, limited duration, contract, internships, projects or volunteer.
While the primary purpose of this community remains the same as the day it was started: to help my HR colleagues find jobs and grow in their careers, my intent is to keep this community expanding as a diverse, safe, positive and professional place. We want to continue to be a valuable resource for building successful HR careers.
Please help keep this community strong and working for all of us. Start by registering on this website and joining our newsletter using the “contact us” form. You will receive the latest job postings, event opportunities and other announcements. Please refer your HR colleagues and friends to this website too. Also, don’t forget to post your company’s human resources job openings here!
Wishing you much success in your HR career!
