Join us for PR in the Pub on March 5

Calling all PR students and recent graduates! Whether you have already chosen a career path or are still considering your options, here’s your chance to learn more about what you need to succeed in PR and communications. This speed-networking event allows you to sit down with at least three expert communicators working in a specific industry – for example, agency, government or not-for-profit. Each will answer your questions on working in PR areas such as media relations, corporate communications, marketing, and social media.

There will also be time to mix and mingle with other experts and expand your PR/communications network. Plus, complimentary finger foods will be served.
