Omaha has been designated as a TechHire community by Opportunity@Work, a nonprofit leading the charge to expand Americans’ access to career opportunities. As part of the TechHire designation, Omaha has recently joined a national network of 71 communities with a goal to help individuals enter the technology workforce through education and help with job placement. TechHire Omaha invites job seekers, employers and community partners to attend a kick-off party to learn more.

WHAT: TechHire Omaha Kick-Off Party; sponsored by Cox Business

WHEN: Thursday, February 9, 2017; 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

WHERE: The Exchange, 7 th Floor, 1905 Harney Street, Omaha, Nebraska, 68102

Technology jobs represent the largest economic development opportunity in our region. If all the open IT positions in Greater Omaha were immediately filled, it would be an immediate $102 million dollar economic boost for the local economy.

TechHire is a nationwide, community-based movement that helps underrepresented job seekers start careers in the technology industry. TechHire partners with education providers from across the tech community to teach in-demand skills to people who want to take part in the modern economy–from overlooked youth, to veterans, to the long-term unemployed; and helps them find jobs by connecting them to a network of employers looking for tech talent. Omaha’s designation as a national TechHire Community was made possible due to the collaborative efforts of AIM and its Interface Web School, Omaha Code School and the Greater Omaha Chamber.
