NET/WORK Philly is Tuesday, February 7, and over 50 hiring organizations will be at the Fillmore Philly looking for their next candidate.

Even if you’re not sure if you are actually looking for a new job, tomorrow’s event is the place for you to start those connections for future employment. However, just in case you’re feeling stagnant, we do have an article for some inspiration about 12 people making “power moves” that will want you to make your own.
