September 15, 2016 - So Why Should I Hire You?

We’re back from summer break! At September’s luncheon, you’ll  hear from local PR leaders from the business, non-profit and agency worlds. They’ll discuss the rapid changes that have taken place in PR and the new skills required to meet the demands of today's profession. PLUS: Members will have the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with our panel members to receive resume advice.
