This Wednesday, November 7 at 6 p.m., PRSSA is hosting Richard Blazevich, a corporate recruiter and career coach, to come and talk to members about “How to Get the Job You Want”. Blazevich has been hiring people for PepsiCo since 2001. During that time, he has interviewed hundreds of candidates and made hiring decisions for a wide variety of roles in his company’s marketing department. During his session, Blazevich will be discussing interview strategy, job search, and resume tips. PRSSA will be giving away five of his books for the chance to get them signed. This is a great opportunity to hear from a professional about their tips of the trade when it comes to finding and applying for an internship or job.
