For employer members, Hound currently provides employer members several monthly plans that allow the employer to post jobs and access resumes of job seeking members of Hound.
While Hound makes every effort to only list jobs which employers may want those in the industry-specific community to know about, we are not responsible for the accuracy of our jobs and/or the contact information for those jobs and any consequences to our users that may follow from them applying to given jobs listed on the Hound website. The inclusion of links on this site does not constitute an endorsement of the employer or a guarantee that a job even exists with a given employer. Hound assumes no liability whatsoever for the quality or legality of the jobs posted on its site or whether or not employers are actually able to hire a candidate in response to a given job listing. Furthermore, Hound does not censor any position offered, including but not limited to the identity of the employer.
Hound assumes no liability for the quality, legality, or accuracy of resumes, cover letters, supporting materials or its assistance in transmitting any of this information to an employer member.

AS AN HOUND MEMBER, YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR A MEMBERSHIP IN ACCORDANCE WITH HOUND'S MEMBERSHIP FEE. IF YOU ARE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIBER, AS OF THIS DATE THE MINIMUM MEMBERSHIP FEE IS $399 PER MONTH BUT MAY BE MUCH HIGHER. YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY BILLED EACH MONTH, UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU CONTACT US BY TELEPHONE TO CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO CANCEL WITHOUT CHARGE AT ANY TIME DURING THE FOURTEEN (14) DAY FREE TRIAL PERIOD. AFTER THE TRIAL PERIOD, YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP AT ANY TIME, BUT YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A REFUND FOR ANY UNUSED PORTION REMAINING ON YOUR ACCOUNT. YOU MUST CANCEL BEFORE YOUR NEXT BILLING DATE IN ORDER TO AVOID A CHARGE FOR THE FOLLOWING MONTH-LONG PERIOD. IF YOUR BILLING DATE FALLS ON A WEEKEND OR LEGAL U.S. HOLIDAY, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL ON A WEEKDAY PRIOR TO YOUR BILLING DATE. YOUR BILLING DATE REFLECTS THE DATE YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH HOUND WAS INITIATED. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH HOUND BY CALLING US AT (800) 680-7231 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:00 A.M. AND 4:00 P.M. (PACIFIC STANDARD TIME), MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY (EXCLUDING HOLIDAYS), AND SPEAK WITH ONE OF OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES TO TELL US YOU NO LONGER WISH TO BE CHARGED FOR THE SERVICE. HOUND PRESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE MEMBERSHIP FEES AT ANY TIME. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO HOUND WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED EVERY MONTH, UNLESS HOUND IS NOTIFIED BY PHONE. UNTIL YOU TERMINATE YOUR MEMBERSHIP, YOU AUTHORIZE OUR BILLING COMPANY (VERISIGN) TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT CARD (OR OTHER APPROVED FACILITY OR MECHANISM) FOR THE ONGOING SUBSCRIPTION FEE.
WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR HOUND WITH A PROMOTION CODE THAT OFFERS FREE ACCESS FOR A SPECIFIED PERIOD, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR THE SPECIFIED PERIOD, ALLOWING YOU FREE AND UNLIMITED ACCESS DURING THAT PERIOD. IF THE PROMOTION REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT PAYMENT INFORMATION, YOUR CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED ON THE DAY IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE END OF THE SPECIFIED PERIOD, UNLESS YOU CALL US DURING THE PROMOTION PERIOD TO CANCEL AS DESCRIBED IN THIS PARAGRAPH, AND YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BE BILLED THEREAFTER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU SIGN UP WITH THE 14-DAY FREE TRIAL OFFER, YOU WILL BE BILLED THE PERIODIC FEE ON THE 15TH DAY, AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE BILLED THE PERIODIC FEE EACH BILLING PERIOD THEREAFTER. ANY FREE TRIAL OFFER ASSOCIATED WITH HOUND ENTITLES NEW SUBSCRIBERS TO A ONE-TIME FREE TRIAL USAGE OF THE SERVICE. BY SIGNING UP FOR HOUND WITH A PROMOTION CODE OFFERING FREE ACCESS FOR A SPECIFIED PERIOD AND SUBMITTING PAYMENT INFORMATION, YOU SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZE US TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR THE PERIODIC FEES UNDER WHICH YOU HAVE SIGNED UP, BEGINNING IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE END OF THE SPECIFIED PROMOTION PERIOD. IF YOU WISH TO TERMINATE THE TRIAL AND DO NOT WISH TO BE BILLED ON A RECURRING BASIS, YOU MUST CALL TO CANCEL BEFORE THE END OF YOUR TRIAL PERIOD, AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.
