Remote-Work Jobs in Computer Science, Professional Fields or Support Services*

The Northwest Kansas Economic Innovation Center, Inc. (NWKEICI) is spearheading an initiative called “Rural & Remote” with the goal of connecting residents in Lincoln County and other northwest KS counties to job opportunities elsewhere in the region, state and country. The Rural & Remote program is able to assist individuals with varying degrees of experience in these categories:

Computer Science (Software Developers, Coders, Programmers, etc.)

  • Experienced – Individuals have a computer science-related degree and/or the job experience proving readiness for full-time, remote-work employment. The Rural & Remote program will provide job placement support. If an individual does not have remote-work experience, an internship may be recommended initially.
  • Aspiring – Individuals who would like a career in a computer science-related field. The Rural & Remote program offers an online academy (Nspire Labs Coding Academy) resulting in students receiving a full stack web development ruby certification. A person can attend the academy as either a part-time or full-time student. Grant funding or financing may be available to help with tuition; however, you MUST live in Lincoln County or another northwest KS county to be eligible for the assistance. After successfully completing the academy, Rural & Remote will help with job placement support, first through internships and then for full-time employment.

 

Professional Jobs (Finance, Legal, Medicine, Marketing, Education, etc.)

  • Experienced – Individuals have a professional degree and/or the job experience and credentials proving readiness for full-time, remote-work employment. The Rural & Remote program will provide job placement support. If an individual does not have remote-work experience, an internship may be recommended initially.
  • Aspiring – Individuals who are working on their degree and would like to work remotely after graduation, the Rural & Remote program will provide internship placement support.

 

Support Jobs (Executive Assistant, Customer Support, Data Entry, etc.)

  • Experienced – Individuals have a degree and/or the job experience and credentials proving readiness for full-time, remote-work employment. The Rural & Remote program will provide job placement support. If an individual does not have remote-work experience, an internship may be recommended initially.
