A representative with central Nebraska based CareerBum.com says there's been a recent increase in job openings within the Tri-Cities.

"Nationwide we know that's not always the case, but here in Nebraska we've noticed that with the low unemployment rate they're having quite a bit of success." Said Micki Ward, Marketing and Communications Coordinator with CareerBum.com.

A piece of advice for you job seekers, Ward says have someone proofread your resume, utilize social media like LinkedIn, and always maintain a professional appearance online and in person.
