Careerockit is an initiative of the Greater Omaha Chamber in partnership with countless community partners to connect students and young adults with opportunities to move along the learning pipeline, gain applicable knowledge and build excitement for growing career options, right here.

One week each year, businesses meet the challenge of hosting thousands of career experiences to educate, excite and inspire students and young adults.

What students learn outside the classroom gives them a glimpse into their future. Student experiences provide pathways into careers and allow them to build a portfolio of connections that propel them into further career achievement.

Together, we are meeting our region’s current and future talent needs.
