Helpful career advice from industry leaders was readily available at PRWeek's second annual virtual talent event on April 25.
One of the main facilitators of the PR industry's continuing rise is its talent, from the most junior to senior levels. At PRWeek's Virtual Talent Summit on April 25, more than 500 PR pros convened to network, listen to expert advice, and take a key step in advancing their careers.
In addition to exhibitor booths, where PR pros could learn of job opportunities, there were three unique webcast sessions from which attendees could glean key information.
"The next step" counseled mid-level pros on how to move up the company ladder. "Driving diversity" highlighted organizations and individuals who are leading the way in making the PR workforce more diverse. "The anatomy of an influential communicator" underscored how the role of the CCO is changing.
The event will be available on demand online until September 30. Please visit here.
