About the Program

Are you thinking about what’s next in your career journey? Do you want to better position yourself in the job market, but aren’t sure where to begin? Are you curious about how careers in the communications industry are evolving to meet the demands of the uncertain economy?

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers and insights from PR Talent, one of the country’s largest communications-focused search firms.

Join us Thursday, May 25, 2023 from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the Let’s Talk About Your Career luncheon – beginning with 30 minutes of networking and an opportunity to have a FREE professional headshot taken. The lunch and program will begin at 12:15 p.m.

Join PRSA Richmond and PR Talent Managing Director Meredith Mirrington at Let’s Talk About Your Career, covering:

- The slow of The Great Resignation and what this means if you are looking for your next professional opportunity.

- Latest compensation trends impacting communications professionals.

- How to best work with a recruiter to support your job search.

- The one mistake that will find your resume and application in the trash quicker than you can say “Recruitment.”

Celebrating their 25th anniversary, PR Talent offers a deep talent pool of public relations and communications professionals covering all industries. In support of that client and candidate pool, PR Talent annually sponsors the PRWeek Salary Survey, the communication industry's most comprehensive survey of workplace trends including pay equity, diversity, holistic well-being, hybrid/remote work preferences, compensation levels by title and industry, and other current insights from across the communications marketplace.

For the past two decades, Meredith built and led high-impact, multi-platform internal, external, and executive communications efforts and teams for globally recognized, innovative, and respected companies in industries ranging from tech to tourism. Today, you can find her in the (online) classroom as an Adjunct Instructor for her alma mater, the University of Colorado-Boulder, teaching the next generation of communicators the importance of internal communications and the employee experience.

Known for leading with contagious courage and curiosity, Meredith is taking on her career’s “second act” to help clients further their company’s narrative with unicorn talent in place and to help candidates find their way in the pursuit of career growth and success, however they choose to define it.

Help us help you! This program will feature a robust dialogue with the audience to help make sure you get your questions answered. Do you have a question that you’d like addressed during the program’s Q&A? Submit it with your registration. We will not share names associated with questions.

Virtual Options Update

The chapter will no longer offer virtual options (livestream or recording) for monthly luncheons due to low viewership and high production cost. Members who are unable to attend a luncheon in person can still access the program content through a recap on our website. We will also provide the presenter's slides if they are available.
