Why YOU Should Attend Young Professionals Week

Why YOU Should Attend Young Professionals Week

By Jared Mandell


It’s almost time for Engage! Cleveland’s 5th Annual Young Professionals Week! Hundreds upon hundreds of young professionals from across Northeast Ohio will soon be partaking in some of the many events E!C will be hosting from June 23 to June 30.  If you’re like me, you might be wondering which event (or events) you should sign up for. With so many options, you really can’t go wrong, but here are some of the events that I’m personally most looking forward to.

Lunch with Leaders

This event is always a hit, and this year will be no different. I’m so excited to speak with some amazing CLE leaders and hear their wisdom. There will be some great, inspirational individuals in attendance, and I can’t wait to absorb all that they have to say. With more than a dozen leaders signed up, this lunch should be one for the books

Young Professional Employment & Graduate Program Fair

As a current college student, I’m already thinking about what my next move will be once I graduate. Luckily, this fair will be very useful in exposing me to some of Cleveland’s most distinguished employers and graduate schools. There are so many amazing organizations that will be distributing information during this event, and I am eager to hear from each one of them.

Sweet Treats of Cleveland: Tasting and Panel Discussion

This event is sure to be a real “treat!” I’m really looking forward to this event because it’s a blend of my two favorite things: Cleveland and desserts! I’m excited to hear from the faces behind some of my favorite CLE dessert places, and I of course can’t wait to sample some delicious things of theirs.

Lessons in Leadership with Sandy Cutler

Sandy Cutler helped grow Eaton Corporation into the multinational power management company that it is today, and he did so right here in Cleveland. He was also the Chairman and CEO of Eaton Corporation (he has since retired), and now he’ll be speaking at this lunch and learn. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say!
