Whether you’re just beginning your job search right out of college, or you’re anticipating a career change, advice on interviews, resumes and job searching is always relevant. While some of the tips are traditional, as technology and the field of public relations continue to evolve, so do resumes.

In this Brown Bag, Richard Spector, of PRSA Jobcenter, will share with us all of the basics, but also all of the new and creative ways to enhance your resume with QR codes and social media. Then, once you catch an employer’s attention with your resume, he’ll discuss how to “wow” them with your interview skills. In addition to interviews and resumes, he will review the job seeking tools PRSA has to offer.

Regardless of what stage of your career you’re in, this is always valuable information to have!
