Help A PR Pro Out (HAPPO)

Do you need help getting your name out to potential employers as an upcoming graduate?  Do you want to make connections with PR social media leaders in  major cities?

Help A Pr Pro Out (HAPPO) is a new social media movement designed to connect public relations job-seekers at every level (from entry-level to seasoned professionals) align themselves with employers looking to find fresh talent.   So far, it has mainly been a platform for job-seekers to post “elevator pitches” via Twitter and blogs with contact information for interested potential employers.  More information can be found at: http://helpaprproout.com/.

HAPPO has organized their first “HAPPO” Day on Friday, Feb. 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST.  The following is HAPPO Day’s “call to action” as found on their website:

  • Jobseekers should prepare a creative blog post for prospective employers and share it via Twitter during the event using the hashtag #HAPPO
  • Employers can share job openings with the team of dedicated PR bloggers and influencers who will serve as regional champions
  • All those in the PR industry can participate by sharing #HAPPO tweets with personal networks and lending support to those looking for a job

This is an excellent resource, which is a non-traditional but influential way to begin to proliferate the market with our “personal brands”.  Happy Tweeting and good luck on the job hunt!
