This afternoon, CPRS Manitoba is putting on a new event aimed at connecting communications students with industry professionals for some networking.
The free event, running from 5-7 p.m. today at the University of Winnipeg's Division of Continuing Education on the 18th floor of 275 Portage Avenue, is organized like speed-dating -- except that it's speed networking. Participating students will have a few minutes to visit with each of a number of working communicators, to introduce themselves and ask about their experiences, their jobs... and their advice on getting hired.
CPRS Manitoba's Acting President Shawna Forester Smith says it's not too late for communications students who may not have registered yet for this free event; just go to the CPRS Manitoba website for more information.
Not a student?
No worries! The CPRS Manitoba Spring Mixer follows the student networking event, from 7-9 p.m. at Tavern United Downtown. Come out and catch up with old -- and new -- friends.
