Tech Hire is a national network of communities, educators and employers who believe if you can do the job, you should get the job.
Public and private partnerships in the Greater Omaha area support the Tech Hire initiative in three key ways:
“Omaha is an excellent addition to the TechHire initiative. We have a strong business community to provide opportunities in tech careers including a growing, successful tech startup community,” said Mayor Jean Stothert. “My administration supports job and business growth through public-private partnerships, youth education programs, economic inclusion and financial support for community programs that enhance job training and employment. TechHire will be another resource to increase recruiting and training in this important career field.”
– Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert
“For a quarter of a century, building thriving communities and changing lives through technology has been a passion of AIM,” said Dr. Kandace Miller, president and CEO of AIM Institute. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with more organizations to grow, connect and inspire tech talent even more through the national TechHire movement.”
– Dr. Kandance Miller, AIM Institute President and CEO
“Greater Omaha’s tech sector is experiencing unprecedented expansion, and we are driving hard to cultivate the necessary tech talent to increase our IT workforce by 4,000 workers. Ten Greater Omaha area employers have already joined us in our TechHire initiative, but
we’re looking for more to help accelerate our tech talent efforts, strengthen our local economy and build up our region’s Silicon Prairie.”
– David G. Brown, President and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
