Networking event planned for job seekers, employers

On July 11, ProNet will host its semi-annual professional networking breakfast from 7:30-11 a.m. at the Atlantis Casino in Reno. The event is an opportunity for ProNet members to practice their networking skills face-to-face with employers and agencies in an informal and professional environment. It is free to all attendees.

Our professionals represent every facet of business from accounting to operations management, to human resources, to non-profit management. And this event brings together all that talent in one room at one time for the benefit of hiring managers, companies and agencies.”
