Are you a Kansas City young professional? Are you looking for new young professional opportunities? Are you interested in networking with other young professionals in the local area? Think Big Partners is here to answer all of your young professional questions. First, it is important to answer “what is a young professional anyway?”
A young professional is a person not in school who is employed in a profession or white-collar occupation. This includes young small business owners and young entrepreneurs as well. According to Wikipedia, young professionals are viewed as having “an obsession with success” and are often attached to technology and media.
At the same time, young professionals are also known to provide a welcome increase in a local area’s tax base and can also create a snowball effect of attracting and infusing young energy and talent into the area. Kansas City has established the Kansas City Young Professionals Networking Society in order to promote the young energies of the city and to shape a collaborative Kansas City business community.
If you’re a young professional looking to enhance your business opportunities in the Kansas City area, The Kansas City Young Professionals Networking Society is an organization that is worth looking into. This networking society is for people both young and young-at-heart in the Kansas City area who are looking to talk with other young professionals to gain more business knowledge and expert advice. The Kansas City Young Professionals Networking Society is known for hosting some of the city’s most successful business get-togethers, which fosters the growth of Kansas City innovation, business, and economy.
In the upcoming weeks, The Kansas City Young Professionals Networking Society has a number of events that Kansas City business people would benefit attending. All events are open to the public including spouses and friends. Tonight, join the networking society and other Kansas City business professionals for Happy Hour at Sullivan’s Steakhouse sponsored by the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce.
