AIM Institute transforms Careerlink to better meet needs of community

Sep 5, 2017

The Nebraska Department of Labor projects there will be 1 million computer-related job openings in the United States by 2024.


Because of this massive growth in tech careers, the AIM Institute has transformed Careerlink.com into a technology and career hub to help meet the demand for tech workers. 

Matt Bernard, AIM Institute Director of Product Integration, says the Careerlink transformation is linking job seekers to a new set of career development tools, especially those in the growing career fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

"A lot of the reasoning behind those changes are really community-driven.  So it’s really AIM trying to better align ourselves to what the community is looking for and what the community is needing.  So by doing that, it also helps us get back to the core of what we are and that’s around developing technical talent and career development and tech education.”

Bernard says AIM envisions Careerlink as the place where tech professionals in the Midwest will get connected to the community through events and meetups, learn about the best companies to work for in their city, and get assistance with making a career transition into tech.
