Looking for a PR gig? Get HAPPO this Friday!

Hey Flacks!

Thanks to the 55+ of you who came out to last night's February happy hour! As you may have read, we joined forces with Mike Schaffer and the DC-area Help A PR Pro Out (HAPPO) folks; it was a tremendous success.

If you are of the Twittering variety, you?ve likely read about HAPPO via the hashtag #HAPPO. It stands for Help a PR Pro Out, a brilliant concept that connects PR job seekers with employers looking for top talent. If you are in the market for a new (or your first) PR job, I'd encourage you to join the Help A PR Pro Out Community on Twitter.

This Friday, February 19th from 11am-3pm EST, #HAPPO will connect companies and agencies with qualified PR pros in this international initiative.

Join the chat by following #HAPPO and #HAPPODC hashtags and/or follow @helpaprproout. To connect locally, send a Tweet to @mikeschaffer or @heatherhuhman.

Over the past month, thanks to your Tweets, DC Flacks has welcomed dozens of new members! Thanks to all of you for helping make this happy hour a can't-miss event. Our March gathering will be announced in the next few days.

Oh! And we now have a DC Flacks LinkedIn group. Join here!

Have a fabulous Wednesday.
