The third installment of NEWaukee's Young Professionals Week has been a thrilling success.  The final counts announced that over 4,000 young professionals came out to the event, participating in everything from yoga to lunches and talks and performances on such a wide range of topics.

Every YP week to date has been a success, but this year's blew its predecessors out of the water.  Over the course of the week, 34 events were carried out successfully, and with the highest attendance in the history of YP Week.

If next year you are looking for a great professional event to attend, be sure to consider being a part of YP Week 2015, which is sure to be a great success!

Participating in volunteer opportunities, Milwaukee tours, networking events, fitness classes, reverse job fairs, and getting plenty of free coffee is a great way to expand your contacts and learn more about the wonderful city of Milwaukee.  

While YP Week 2015 might be a year away, NEWaukee is a great organization that puts on plenty of events, both professional and social, throughout the year.  Take the plunge and become a member! You won't regret it!

Best Work Places in Milwaukee

Posted by: Discover Milwaukee on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 12:00:00 am Comments (0)

The Greater Milwaukee region is blessed with an abundance of wonderful places to work.  Every year, our award winning paper the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel publishes a list of the best work places in southeastern Wisconsin.  The 2014 list isn't out just yet, but you can learn more about the companies who earned this distinction by reading the entire list and watch videos from satisfied employees here.  

We have some very big names in Milwaukee, including Shorewest Realtors, who earned the top spot in the large company category in 2013.  Aurora Health Care and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin are among leaders in the financial industry.  Despite being very large companies, these organizations go above and beyond to make their employees feel at home. 

With all of the responses The Journal Sentinel received, they compiled a list of over 100 companies.  Employees are very proud to work for these companies; companies that respect their employees, build family-like bonds, and maintain strong business practices.  

In addition to recognition as a top employer locally, a handful of Milwaukee companies also made the nation's top 150 workplaces of 2013.  A large factor in employees recommending their workplace for one of the top 150 was the fact that they feel like they are a valued part of the community.  

Be sure to read more about the companies featured in the Career Opportunities section of this website; including ABB, Kohl's, and the Medical College of Wisconsin.  These companies are actively looking for top talent and would love to hear from you!

Satisfied employees today feel appreciated and know that what they are doing matters.  You'll find many wonderful employment opportunities across many industries and professions here in the greater Milwaukee area.
