Situated on Lake Erie’s southern shore, near the Cuyahoga River, Cleveland is a modern metropolis with many amenities, including a rich cultural scene, many natural habitats and recreational options, plus family-friendly leisure activities. Foodies will be drawn to West Side Market, Cleveland’s oldest public market, which features a dazzling array of foods from more than 100 vendors. The city is also an important hub for higher education and world-class healthcare facilities.
Once a manufacturing stronghold, Cleveland went through a period of downtown revitalization starting in the mid-1990s, which continues today. The Global Center for Health Innovation brings together entrepreneurs, elite healthcare institutions, advisors, investors and industry leaders to transform healthcare. The Huntington Convention Center features 225,000 square feet of exhibit space and attracts innovative businesses from around the world and global conferences. Forbes declared Ohio, the ‘Buckeye state’, the best U.S. state to launch a startup.
The city of Cleveland also made the Forbes list of “The 25 cities where your paycheck will go the furthest.” In overall costs, it’s comparable to other cities, but the real story is in housing costs, which are 12% lower than the national average. The median home price is $306,401, while the median rent is $959.82 per month; compared to $326,527 and $1,023 for nearby Detroit, Michigan—and a whopping $1,628,124 and $5,100 per month in New York City. For couples interested in getting married and settling down without breaking the bank, Cleveland is also named as an affordable city for weddings and new home purchases.
Public transportation, which can help to ease commuter costs, is available through the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), which operates a bus and rail mass transit system throughout the city.
Sales professionals from other states might not think of Cleveland as a cultural center, but our executive recruiters at CulverCareers will let them know about the many activities the city has to offer.
