DeVries PR is holding a competition this month that will give one person the chance to come to New York for a free coaching session on how to transition into a PR career.

Submissions to the “Career Reboot” competition – a 200-word essay, current resume, two professional references, and links to at least one social media profile – are due to by March 20. The competition is open to anyone in the U.S. with two or more years of professional experience.

A panel of five PR pros will choose five finalists. Those finalists will appear on the DeVries Facebook page on March 22 for a public vote, which runs through March 28. Updates will also be posted on Twitter as well (#DVPRreboot).

The winner will get a trip to New York for a day of training – resume writing, crafting your social media presence, etc – and lunch with senior execs from the firm.
