Network with DFW communication professionals Next Tuesday 5-7p at the OAC.

CCPA networking night

CCPA students and alumni, think you’re ready for the job search? Perfectly comfortable walking up to a communication professional, holding a conversation and networking? Resumé LinkedIn and interview techniques all perfect and ready to go?

Great. But if not, here’s your chance to get the help of 16 of the top pros from Dallas at the CCPA/PRSSA Networking Night next Tuesday night.

So put on your best business duds and join CCPA and PRSSA in the Mezzanine Lobby of the Owen Fine Arts Center From 5-7p on Tuesday, October 29 to have one-on-one conversations with members of the CCPA Advisory Board. The professionals attending are from corporate, agency and non-profit groups. See the list below.

This is your chance in a safe environment to learn how to talk freely with pros and have them give you feedback on your resumés, LinkedIn profiles, and job search strategies. Valuable information you won’t get many other places.
