Dream careers

Are you looking for the career of your dreams? If so, Nebraska is the ideal place for you. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. We have the secondhighest labor force participation rate among all states. Wages are growing rapidly. And we have tens of thousands of open jobs at any given time.

To help people take these jobs, my team has started a number of initiatives. From the middle school years to career launches and transitions, we are connecting the next generation of Nebraskans to the great opportunities awaiting them here in the Good Life.

In 2015, I worked with the Legislature to create the Developing Youth Talent Initiative (DYTI). Over the last four years, this program has introduced over 7,000 middle school students to great careers in manufacturing and information technology. This week, the Department of Economic Development and I announced that a new round of DYTI grants will go to Orthman Manufacturing of Lexington, Reinke Manufacturing of Deshler, and Vistabeam Inventive Wireless of Gering. These new grants will raise awareness about these fields with 4,600 more students, so they can pursue their interest further at the high school level.
