Educators, Students and Parents
Sign up runs from Sept. 10 – Oct. 19
Educators can participate by signing up their classrooms. You will be asked to provide details such as your availability for the week, number of students in your class, grade level – among other details – to help us match you with a business that aligns with your interest.
Students can actively participate via their classrooms. Encourage your teachers to sign up your class!
Parents cannot actively participate in Careerockit. They can, however, encourage their child’s educators to participate or encourage their employer to host experiences. More importantly, parents can be active at home supporting their child’s career interests and curiosity.
What is Careerockit? And how do I participate?
One week each year, Greater Omaha region businesses meet the challenge of hosting thousands of career experiences to educate, excite and inspire students and young adults. Educators are the conduits to these students. To participate, educators can register their entire classroom or a small group of students.
I'm an English teacher-why is learning about today's careers important for my English classroom?
What if I have one student, or just a couple of students, looking to participate in an experience?
I’m not an educator, I work with students via a nonprofit program. Can we participate?
What if there are certain businesses my students have already engaged with, so it doesn’t work to learn about them again?
What is the deadline for me to sign-up?
Educator sign-up is Sept. 10 – Oct. 19.
I want a business to come into my classroom and present. Is that an option?
Yes, businesses are interested in experiences taking place in the classroom and also at the business. When signing-up, you will be asked to specify an experience in the classroom or outside of it. Businesses will match accordingly.
