Jumpstart is the Northwest’s premier career development event for aspiring PR professionals. This day-long professional workshop and networking conference gives attendees a behind the scenes look at the public relations industry by connecting them with real world advice and professionals. It’s the perfect spring board for those looking to launch their PR career.

Who is it for?

Jumpstart is designed to help educate aspiring professionals who are interested in learning more about the public relations industry. A majority of attendees tend to be undergraduates majoring in PR or communications but the event is also a perfect fit for those looking to transition into the field.

When is Jumpstart?

Jumpstart is generally held in the spring of each year.

What Type of Speakers Attend?

Each year the Jumpstart planning committee strives to ensure the program is diverse and features a variety of different sectors and interests. In the past we’ve had speakers from big agencies, small agencies, medium sized agencies, non-profits, government, high-tech, and many more speak at the event.

The Jumpstart planning committee is always looking for professionals interested in connecting with aspiring professionals.
