HAPPO (Help a PR Professional Out) has been gaining a lot of steam over the last few months with its mission of connecting PR professionals with job and internship opportunities through its blogs, LinkedIn account, and Twitter stream.
Founded by Arik Hanson and Valerie Simon, HAPPO is led by 35 PR industry leaders from across the country looking to make a difference and offer their expertise and knowledge.
For instance, tonight from 8pm-9pm, HAPPO will be hosting a free Twitter chat (under the #HAPPO hashtag) that is open to anyone and everyone, including those looking for a job, those looking to hire or those just looking to provide advice or words of encouragement for job-seekers.
The theme for the chat is New Year’s Resolutions for PR Job Seekers–How to land a job in 2011. A wide range of topics will be discussed, with everything from job-seeking tips to resume-building and interviewing advice making it into the mix.
Even if you're lucky enough to already have a PR job, there's obviously enough being discussed at the #HAPPO chat to make it more than worth your while.
