PR Advanced: Brand Yourself – Spotlight on the HR Panel
PR Advanced: Brand Yourself is just TWO short days away. In addition to our keynote speakers and breakout sessions, another one of the many highlights of the conference is the Human Resources Panel. We brought together a group of human resources experts to give you the opportunity to ask questions of the interviewers who might one day question you. Our fantastic panel includes:
