What We Do
1st Job-Lincoln is a program developed and coordinated by LincolnHR’s Workforce Readiness Committee. Created in 2013, 1st Job-Lincoln gave students exposure to the information technology business world while still in high school and for their 10th anniversary in 2023, is expanding to 13 career pathways! The name “1st Job-Lincoln” was coined to promote the concept of preparing youth for their first professional job; the program seeks out “Champion Employers” who “champion the way” for our community’s youth to access such jobs at an early age. Unlike other typical summer jobs for teens, 1st Job-Lincoln gives students an opportunity to explore a variety of careers for which they may not otherwise be able to access as a high school student. Secondly, 1st Job-Lincoln provides employers an opportunity to seek out qualified candidates for future employment needs.
