Durham’s Professional Placement Network Academy Hosts Interviewing Best Practices Workshop

Career minded and job-seeking professionals now have an opportunity to participate in the expansion of one of Durham’s best-opportunities for job search success.

The Professional Placement Network Academy (PPNA) is hosting a series of interactive workshops on topics designed to help every jobseeker. The next event will focus on best practices for job interviews and will be held Thursday, April 18, 2013, from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at Springhill Suites, located at 5310 McFarland Drive, Durham.

Other topics to be covered later this year include negotiating one’s salary and compensation package as well as setting a financial plan in today’s economy. Events occur the third Thursday of every month. New for this year, participants who attend four classes will also gain entrance to a unique, invitation-only employment networking event to be planned for later this year.

The PPNA is designed to provide opportunities for mid-to-upper level professionals who have earned at least $30,000 per year or have received higher education credentials or professional certifications, PPNA provides a place for professionals to come together to share ideas, employment leads, and current job market information.

Participants interested in learning more about the PPNA or attending these Thursday evening events should visit online or RSVP here.
