Durham Professional Placement Network Academy Hosts Negotiating Your Salary Workshop

Event Set for May 16; RSVP Requested

​DURHAM, N.C. – Career minded and job-seeking professionals now have an opportunity to participate in the expansion of one of Durham’s best-opportunities for job search success. 

The Professional Placement Network Academy (PPNA) is hosting a series of interactive workshops on topics designed to help every jobseeker. The next event will focus on negotiating your salary and will be held on Thursday, May 16 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Springhill Suites, 5310 McFarland Dr., Durham (U.S. 15-501 towards Chapel Hill).  

Other topics for this year include entrepreneurship and setting a financial plan in today’s economy. Events occur the third Thursday of every month. New for this year, participants who attend four classes will gain entrance to a unique, invitation-only employment networking event.

The PPNA is designed to provide opportunities for mid-to-upper level professionals who have earned at least $30,000 per year or have received higher education credentials or professional certifications. PPNA provides a place for professionals to come together to share ideas, employment leads, and current job market information.
