You could be looking for the next step in your PR career, you might be moving from another communications role or another industry entirely. Or perhaps you’re at the start of your career and looking for your first job in PR.

We have assembled a panel of experts who will be on hand on Thursday 29 September to answer your questions about how to attract recruiters’ attention when applying for jobs online and what to expect once you have applied.

Should you follow up with recruiters? If so, how long should you wait before calling them? And how often should you be calling them? What should you say when you do speak to them? And should you expect a response every time? This is your chance to ask all this and more.

Our expert panel:

Guest expert: Alice Weightman - CEO & founder of Hanson Search and The Work Crowd
