Founded in 1934, the Detroit Economic Club (DEC) provides a platform for international dignitaries and business leaders to explore issues that shape the economic environment. The organization also seeks to identify and encourage tomorrow’s leaders, helping them develop professional skills through its Career Readiness Academy (CRA).
Recently, Dobrusin Law Firm shareholder Paul Palinski renewed his commitment to serve as a volunteer CRA Mentor through 2022. He joined the program in 2020.
The CRA is a five-month program where Southeast Michigan high school students connect with Paul and other young DEC leaders to discuss personal branding, career paths, networking, interview preparation, resumé writing, and LinkedIn usage. Over the curriculum’s six sessions, the students receive personalized attention and forge meaningful mentor-mentee relationships.
Paul exemplifies our firm’s pledge to support the communities in which we live and work. Besides the DEC, he is a member of McLaren Oakland Hospital’s board of directors and the governing council of the State Bar of Michigan’s Intellectual Property Law Section.
