AIM Careerlink is reimagining networking events with a new Mixer Series. Omaha professionals are invited to the premier event, a tech-themed mixer, on Wednesday, August 3 from 4-6 p.m. on the 7th floor of the AIM Exchange building at 1905 Harney Street.

Those who submit an RSVP for the event will be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card.


The fresh take on a traditional career fair will feature a relaxed networking environment with multiple points of casual, low-pressure engagement for job seekers and employers. Attendees will be able to network in small groups while enjoying complimentary refreshments. Local tech employers will lead brief presentations. Quick educational sessions and LinkedIn profile consultations will also be offered.

“Mid-career and currently employed job seekers typically avoid the traditional job fair, but they still want to know what opportunities are out there,” said Caleb Ulffers, the event’s organizer. “The Mixer Series provides a fun way to grow your career without any pressure.”

The tech-themed event will feature presentations by Michael Struthers of Flywheel and Caitlin Odame of Hudl, representatives from two of the region’s fastest growing tech startups.

Tech talent is increasingly essential for communities to drive economic development and grow business.

“The fact is that companies in Omaha are desperate for more people in tech jobs,” said Ulffers. “We have to think more creatively about how we connect those companies with talent.”
