How We Work

The Dakota Roots Team works together to create a better future for South Dakota by providing information and sharing first-hand experiences with out-of-state job seekers. Helping individuals discover something new and establish roots for themselves; our enthusiasm for our state shines through in the services we provide to our customers. Freedom and adventure await!

As part of the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation, Dakota Roots Job Advisors have access to a statewide database of employment opportunities. But they don’t just search for jobs. They get to know you. They’ll match your skills and experience with the right opportunity in the right community. They can assist with application and interview processes and provide moving and housing resources.

Whether you want to chat on the phone or ask a couple of questions over email, how much contact you have is up to you. And there is zero commitment or obligation.

Job Advisors are available to help – free of charge – to everyone who signs up for Dakota Roots.
