Find HAPPO Happiness Beginning Monday, Feb. 18
Monday Evening Twitter Chat (#HAPPO) Kicks Off 2013 Nationwide Grassroots Effort to Match PR Pros with Local Jobs.
This spring, boosting a PR career (or finding great job candidates) in Austin, Texas, has gotten easier. I’ve been knighted by Minnesota digital PR superstar Arik Hanson as an Austin Champ for the re-launch of the Help a PR Pro Out (HAPPO) movement, a nationwide grassroots effort to match PR pros with local jobs.
Whether it’s your first time heading to South by Southwest (“South By” as it’s often referred to) or your 5th, it’s key to have a game plan in place before tackling the monstrous conference.
First, prepare yourself to run into a wide variety of South By attendees… With music, film and interactive tech enthusiasts swarming the streets, there’s no telling who you’ll spot in early March in downtown Austin. Last year over 19,000 people attended the Interactive portion alone according to CNN, an increase of 40% from 2010. Who knows what the numbers will be like this year!
