Check Out the Brain Gain Special Edition

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — As part of our ongoing Brain Gain coverage, we’re putting together special editions that will serve as compendiums of our content.

We cover quite a bit for this editorial feature, and sometimes it’s good to go back and put everything in one place that’s easy to find. You can find the first of these editions HERE.

For the rest of the year, readers can expect these special editions to drop, highlighting the real meat and potatoes of what Brain Gain is all about.

Each issue will feature stories about workforce development and entrepreneurship that have already run in The Business Journal and at, but provide great information and strategies that business owners and community leaders can find value in all year-round.

Naturally, this first edition puts our Brain Gain Navigators virtual career exploration series front and center. Navigators started this year and has been one of the biggest undertakings we’ve done for Brain Gain thus far, and has proven to be very fruitful. We invite you to go back and check out all we published. You might find something you missed.

As always, we know there are great stories happening in the five-county region that we might have missed. And some of the best stuff started as a tip from readers like you. So if you have an interesting story idea that would fit well with our Brain Gain coverage and could help get residents working local jobs, we’d love to hear about it.

Contact Jeremy Lydic at with the details.
