Greater Omaha’s Annual ‘We Don’t Coast’ Publication Hits Today

OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 1, 2018 – If regions had resumes, this would be Greater Omaha’s. The annual Omaha: We Don’t Coast publication, a high-energy overview of the Midwestern Metro ZipRecruiter calls “No. 1 for new college grads to start their careers” and New York Times heralds as having “a progressive approach to free time,” is now available.

“We live the spirit of ‘We Don’t Coast’ every day. It’s who we are. It’s where we live. It’s as aspirational as it is motivational,” says Kim Sellmeyer, creative director, Greater Omaha Chamber. “Our annual magazine is more than the heartbeat of a six-county region. It’s the fearless personification of a place that is for everyone.”

A popular recruiting tool and companion publication for organizations, residents, and newcomers, Omaha: We Don’t Coast is a free Chamber-member resource for talent attraction and employer engagement. The publication is available online, and as a glossy, full color book.

“The Omaha World-Herald is proud to partner with the Greater Omaha Chamber in producing the 2018 edition of ‘Omaha: We Don’t Coast.’  This 144-page magazine is a living tribute to the extraordinary opportunities that connect, unite and propel the 30+ communities in our region to excel as an ideal place to live, work and play,” said Chris Christen, project editor for the Omaha World-Herald.
