hype: Promoting Young Professionals
hype is a workforce development initiative of the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce and is designed to help attract, retain and meet the unique needs of young professionals (ages 21 - 45) throughout the Wausau region.
The purpose of hype is to connect young professionals to each other, the community and businesses; to offer young professionals leadership opportunities and development tools to grow and to encourage young professionals to work, play and stay in the Wausau region.
