Addressing the challenges of recruitment and talent development

Workforce continues to be an area of challenge for Northeast Ohio employers.

Businesses are seeking skilled workers who are reliable, have on-the-job experience and are committed to growing with the company. At the same time, college students in the region are learning that in today’s competitive market, real-world work experience is crucial to landing a job and advancing their careers.

The second annual Cleveland Internship Summit, presented by the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) last week at the Embassy Suites in Independence, helped further the conversation around these workforce challenges and provided best practices in recruitment and talent development.

We thank our sponsors and presenters for their support and involvement in making the event a tremendous success.

Next steps include working with employers and educational institutions represented at the summit to add additional resources to GCP Internship Central.

If you are an employer looking for assistance in growing, managing or starting an internship program or need assistance connecting with interns, please contact Angela Finding at

For those who would like to reference information shared at the Summit, we will be adding the expert presentations and podcasts to our website in the coming weeks.
