The Professional Placement Network Academy (PPNA) is hosting its final event of the 2012-2013 series, which offered interactive workshops on topics designed to help every jobseeker. The final workshop topic will be how to create a financial plan in today’s economy. The event will be held Thursday, July 18, 2013, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Spring Hill Suites, located at 5310 McFarland Drive, Durham (on U.S. Hwy. 15-501 towards Chapel Hill).
