Careerockit, an initiative of the Greater Omaha Chamber, brings the community together one week each year to help students learn about career paths and build excitement for growing career options right here in the region. What students learn outside the room gives them a glimpse into their future and allows them to build a portfolio of connections that propels them into further career achievement.

The Young Professionals Council joined in on the fun this year by hosting an experience for students at Cody Elementary. We believe talent development is a key factor to addressing our region’s current and future workforce needs so we were excited to partner on this event. Along with sharing their own career paths and journeys, members of the council showcased a wide range of industries and careers through an interactive game and group activity.

Careerockit 2020 covered 22 school districts, showcased 200+ businesses and provided 23,000 career-learning experiences. If interested in participating in Careerockit 2021, please email Savannah Cuevas at careerockit@omahachamber.org.
