Our next Drive-Thru Career Fair will take place on Thursday, April 22, 2021 from noon until 7 p.m. at Gateway Mall in the former Sears parking lot at 63rd and O streets.
As with previous events, this is a safe, contactless event where jobseekers can stay in their car and receive a bag with information from Lincoln companies that are hiring now. All companies are welcome to participate and share their information with the community! We are expecting between 500-700 people to attend the event.
Thank you to sponsors: LPED, EmployLNK, American Job Center of Lancaster and Saunders Counties, Nebraska Department of Labor, Center for People in Need, Gateway Mall and Lincoln Literacy.

The Lincoln Manufacturing Council's Manufacturing Tech program includes 15 Lincoln manufacturers that are hiring in our community. We are looking for people that don’t have experience in manufacturing and are willing to learn more!
The 6-week class includes information about measurement, reading work orders, manufacturing workplace protocols and more! The final class will be a career fair giving students an opportunity to interview and be considered for a position.
Benefits to the class include:
The class is free for accepted students. Students must attend all sessions to earn the certificate and stipend. Basic English skills are required to understand the instruction and complete the tasks. A total of 12-15 students will be accepted. There will be future sessions of the class, and anyone not selected for this class will be considered for the next class. LMC classes are currently postponed due to COVID 19. We hope to return to classes in the community in Summer 2021.
CareerLadder is Lincoln’s effort to reconnect Lincoln’s New Americans to their education and profession. For many New Americans, their college degree, certification and licensure are not recognized in the United States. Thanks to funding from Google.org and expertise from World Education Services (WES), Lincoln’s New Americans Task Force created career pathway documents and funded case management positions to assist people to return to their careers in engineering, education, healthcare, accounting and law.
