        Students: We know you have questions—lots (and lots) of questions. “How do I ‘network?’” “Where can I find an internship?” “How should I dress?” “What should I say?” While these are all important questions, they all lead to one central—and perhaps fundamental—idea, “How do I start my career?”

        Luckily for you, our pros have answers.

        Join us at PPRA’s annual Careers 101 event, designed specifically to connect you with communications pros who have been in your shoes and come out on the other side with careers. At this event, you’ll connect directly with pros from prominent industries and agencies across the Philly region, many of whom can help jump start your post-graduate life as a mover and shaker in communications.

        Before the event, you can take advantage of our complimentary, professional resume critique service to give yourself the edge in your next interview, and you’ll receive a free professional headshot to spruce up your LinkedIn profile. If that weren’t enough, we’ll also be giving away chances to win informational interviews, prizes and more.

        Panelists:

        • Layne Litsinger – Brian Communications, Assistant Account Executive
        • Raymond Smeriglio – Saxbys, Head of External Relations
        • Dawn Roberts – Temple University College of Education, Director of External Community Relations
        • More panelists to be announced.
        Registration fee includes program, professional headshot, resume critique and more.

        Philly is known for its “Eds and Meds,” but these citywide staple industries have reached an inflection point. With a higher-than-average decline in college enrollment across the state and regional healthcare system shake-ups, how should PR pros in these industries adapt to ensure their organization’s key stories stand out? Join PPRA for an Eds & Meds Media Panel and hear directly from education and healthcare beat reporters from our region’s most well-respected outlets about what the future holds, what they want to cover, and how you can tailor your pitches to grab their attention.

        Panelists to be announced.

        Registration fee includes a light dinner.
