"Our Reverse Pitch and State of the Practice events are a way of facilitating a certain kind of ‘matchmaking’ between the students and companies. It addresses some concerns that students have…some students are more shy and reticent about putting themselves out there, and by having the companies do that, it creates an opening that makes students feel like they can approach the company and have a good conversation. We think our students have a competitive advantage. Other universities don’t have a program like ours. We need to inform companies of the kind of training our students have, but we also want to understand what their needs are so we can align the training that we’re providing to students with that, and create a really great population of employees for them. There are really great and innovative jobs here in Nebraska. Students don’t necessarily have to go to the coast. They can be doing work that’s just as cutting-edge and just as exciting here. What we want is a program that’s so unique and a local tech ecosystem that’s so rich and so full of opportunities that students are coming from other states to study here — and stay here.”
