Follow Friday: Help a PR Pro Out (#HAPPO)
Over the last year, you may have heard of the wonderful Help A PR Pro Out initiative. HAPPO (for short) has become a wonderful tool for our industry to help promote those looking for jobs. Whether it is a tweet about a position at your firm or a job opening via a colleague in the Twitter stream, HAPPO has done a great job at aiding talented PR pros (hopefully) find work. But, it’s also highlighted kindness.
In that light, on Dec. 8, we’ll be chatting from 9 to 10 p.m. EST. It’s an opportunity for all pros to get together on Twitter to talk and see how we can help. You never know what may come out of this chat.
I’m handing out my Follow Friday to HAPPO because in 2011, I’d like to be able to do more to help my fellow pros find work. Whether it is a freelance gig or a permanent position, I’m hoping I can be a small aid to assist you in finding that new or first big gig.
To check out HAPPO, look for the hashtag, “#HAPPO” on Twitter.
