Aksarben Foundation Partners with Department of Economic Development on Internship Initiative to Grow Nebraska’s Workforce
30 May 2023
Today, Governor Jim Pillen announced a partnership between the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED) and the Aksarben Foundation to create and lead a new internship program to strengthen Nebraska’s workforce. Over the past year, Nebraska’s job creation has outpaced the rest of the Midwest and most of the nation, resulting in plentiful opportunities for career advancement. However, many employers are generating jobs faster than they can fill them. The newly formed partnership—InternNE, Powered by Aksarben—aims to better train and retain young Nebraskans to bolster the state’s skilled workforce.
