"Careers 101: From College to Career"


Making the transition from college to career can be daunting. What are employers looking for? How can you stand out from the crowd? What is it really like to work in public relations?

Let PPRA’s annual Careers 101 event answer these questions and more for you! Join us on April 20th to hear from a panel of young professionals representing a diverse cross-section of the communications industry. Learn how they navigated the transition from college to career and discover how they’re setting themselves apart as leaders.

Following the panel discussion and Q&A session, enjoy refreshments while networking with some of the Philadelphia area’s top public relations professionals.

Don’t forget to bring a copy of your resume for review by a PPRA professional. Attendees also will have the opportunity to enter a raffle by “liking” the PPRA Facebook page for the chance to win one-on-one informational interviews, shadow days, coveted networking opportunities with PPRA leaders, and other great prizes.

Join the conversation online using #Careers101.
