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. To participate, nonprofits can get involved a number of ways. Opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Host an experience
- Student group participant
- Best practice workshop partner
- Experience design expert
- Tech event partner
What is an experience and how can my organization host an experience?
An experience is an activity that exposes participants to a specific career, company or industry. Experience types range from job shadows, which work better for smaller groups or individuals, to tours and activities, which work well for medium to large size groups. Experiences should have clear learning objectives that relate to the job, industry or company you are showcasing.

What is a Best Practice Workshop partner?
Is your nonprofit an expert in student programming and/or curriculum design? Often times businesses are hesitant to offer experiences because they don’t have the resources to plan and host experiences. Partner with us to host Best Practice Workshops that businesses can attend to learn how to make their experience exciting and engaging. Ideally, we will host 5-6 workshops mid-October through mid-December to help businesses conceptualize and design their experience.
