A Season for Thankfulness

IT-Ready students in Omaha buckle down for a new career.


There’s so much to be thankful for right now at Creating IT Futures. We’re in the midst of an IT-Ready Pop-Up class in Omaha, and high demand for IT workers in that city gives hope to these 18 hard-working adult students. IT-Ready Minneapolis/St. Paul is gearing up to move to a new location to accommodate increased employer demand for workers. And we’re delighted to add the descriptor “award-winning” to how we talk about our newly renovated website. As we reflect on all that has developed, we are grateful for the funders, partners, and collaborators who are helping us promote IT careers to so many. Thank you!

Read on.

Graduate Testimonial


"My manager offered me a full-time job because one of the guys working in the daytime is moving to a different position and I will take over for him when he does. I also started working on getting my CCNA yesterday. Everything is going great! Thanks again for all your help in getting me where I am today!"

– Ike Fedick, Winter 2014 IT-Ready Graduate, now at CompuCom
