Thursday 3 February 2011, Rose Bowl, Leeds Metropolitan University
The jobs market is becoming ever more competitive and PR remains one of the top career choices for graduates.
Top qualifications and voluntary work experience are sometimes still not enough to break into PR and carve a successful career in the industry. So how do you stand out and make the right contacts? And how do employers choose the right talent from the mass of speculative applications they receive?
Find out at the CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire’s Young Practitioners Networking Event, which will bring together students, new graduates, young practitioners and top employers in the region to network and gain tips and advice.
This FREE event will provide the opportunity to discuss the issues facing young practitioners and employers in today’s competitive, ever changing PR industry and the chance to find out what potential jobs and new talent is out there. It will also launch Leeds Metropolitan University’s Centre for Public Relations’ mentoring programme and provide the opportunity for non-CIPR members to take up an extended offer of three months’ free membership with no admission fee.
The event will feature talks from Helen Standing, the CIPR Yorkshire and Lincolnshire’s current ‘Outstanding Young Communicator’ on how to boost your credentials and make your mark on the PR industry early in your career, as well as top in-house and agency employers in the region on what they look for in new recruits and how to get a foot in the door
Register here and join us at the Rose Bowl in Leeds from 6pm for registration and refreshments with networking finishing around 8.30pm.
