The Professional Placement Network (PPN) offers targeted career services to adult professionals through the expansion of networking opportunities, workshops, development of business partnerships, and job referrals.
Designed to provide opportunities for mid to upper-level professionals, PPN provides a place for professionals to come together to share ideas, employment leads, and current job market information. The goal is to provide participants with the tools to develop a successful networking strategy.
Each meeting begins with an opportunity for participants to introduce themselves, share stories and experiences, and have a bite to eat. Every month has a theme with local employers available. The meetings are interactive, allowing for individual participation and a question and answer opportunity.
Workshops are held monthly and will cover topics ranging from social networking to defining career goals to resume preparation and interviewing skills. To register for any of the PPN events, contact Lauren Johnson. Space is limited.
In addition to the monthly professional networking sessions, free career development workshops are offered to the public on a weekly basis at the NC Works Career Center at 1105 S. Briggs Avenue in Durham. To register for any of the career development workshops, contact Lauren Johnson. Space is limited.
