IBM coming to BR



They are supposed to make an announcement today about possibly coming to BR, but I found an article in the Lincoln paper about the decision already being made. I guess since they lost, they let the news out early.

LINK

Of course, this will take some time, but any ideas to get your name out there ahead of the flood of applicants? Do you think it is worth it to just apply for a position to get your resume in their database?

I know. I participated in that thread. My question is not really related to the news though.

It was on the BR Biz Report's Daily updated site awhile back. Still an interesting and positive development for BR and the surrounding areas.

Supposedly, the state is going to pay for around 30% of their expenses, so I would wonder how strong the foundation is for keeping them here permanently.

Who will actually own the building?

Is this future site located at the vacant property Jim Bernhard recently purchased along river road?

No, the former Advocate site is where they are building

What do you do if they call you about the position you use to get in their DB?

shite I don't know. I am very proactive so I thought I could do something other that sit and wait. Just brainstorming.

That's just the software development tax credit. Open to any software developers in the state.
