Are you a public relations professional in need of a new gig?

Arik Hanson and Valerie Simon have put together a one-day virtual event that can help.

Help A PR Pro Out Day (“An obvious play on HARO,” the organizers say, with a big tip o’ the hat to Peter Shankman) will be Feb. 19, from 11-3 EST. Bloggers, PR pros, and agency leaders will all “donate their time and talents to help fellow PR pros connect with employers.”

What does this mean, exactly? A couple “market champions” across the country will be trying to connect jobseekers with open positions. And since its free for everyone, employers don’t have to pay job boards or hire a recruiter.

You can follow the madness as Feb. 19 grows closer at HelpAPRPRoOut.com or at hashtag #HAPPO.
