PPRA, Philadelphia Public Relations Association, is organizing a Networking 101 event geared toward college students in Communication/Public Relations. The event is this Thursday, October 13 from 5:45pm to 8pm.
Four out of five jobs are secured through networking, according to a recent study. Indeed, what you know can help you succeed on the job, but who you know can help you get your foot in the door. But how can you practice networking in a way that is authentic and effective? Find out at PPRA’s annual Networking 101 event for college students and young professionals! The evening will feature keynote remarks from Justin Pizzi, vice president of sales and marketing at Saxbys Coffee. Come hear how networking helped Pizzi transition from college student to a major market television reporter to his current role as an executive for a growing consumer brand. Learn how you, too, can network to success! Following the discussion and Q&A session, put your new knowledge to the test during a speed networking opportunity with professionals from a broad cross-section of the communications industry, including agency, healthcare, sports & entertainment, non-profit, and more. Attendees will even have the opportunity to win raffle prizes, including one-on-one informational interviews, shadow days, and other coveted networking opportunities with Philadelphia-area communications professionals.
