PRSA Dallas NuPros Happy Hour

Networking with other PR pros might seem dauting for young professionals. What are the do’s and don’ts? How do you network in pursuit of a new job? Does networking really pay off?

Join the NuPros Group of PRSA Dallas for our 2019 kickoff event, ““Network Like A Pro – Networking Tips from the PR Industry's Finest.”

Our group of experienced panelists will share networking experiences and advice during an informal, interactive discussion as part of our greater happy hour. NuPros who attend will come away with a deeper understanding of how networking can help them on their PR career path.
