>For those college students who think that if they want a career in advertising they have to move to Chicago or New York… you are wrong! We, meaning Cleveland, finally have the stats to prove Cleveland has a strong marketing-communications industry.
According to this article by The Plain Dealer, our industry employs more than 39,000 people in Northeast Ohio! You’ll be shocked by the other stats as our industry is larger than any other industry in Cleveland. Yes, it out-ranks manufacturing, transportation, etc.
Thanks to Dick Clough and the Northeast Ohio Communication Advocates (NOCA) along with The Plain Dealer for conducting the research!
