Does it seem like you’re always getting the same advice on landing your first job out of college? “Be patient, an opportunity will come along” and “Go on as many informational interviews as possible in the meantime” are truths of the post-grad (or soon to be) life. Still, PPRA knows you need more answers than that!
Join us for the annual Careers 101 event to hear from a panel of communication industry professionals who have been in your shoes and come out on the other side with a job offer. You’ll have the chance to ask all your burning questions and network to your heart’s desire with folks who have connections to desirable companies and organizations to work for.
This year’s event will have a special mentorship component where attendees can learn directly from our team exactly how important mentorship can be and how PPRA can help facilitate a meaningful mentor-mentee relationship for our new members.
Plus, all attendees will receive resume critiques from the best in the business and complimentary professional head shots by Philip Gabriel Photography
to spruce up your LinkedIn profile.
