What does a Job Advisor do?
As a Job Advisor, I make sure that out-of-state seekers are aware of positions that might interest them. I know life can get hectic and seekers may not always have time to be looking – that’s where I come in. I send them the listings and give them any info I may have about the employer so they can make as efficient use of their available time as possible.
What can people expect when they Join Dakota Roots?
A friendly, stress free approach to their job search. We are here to help. With unemployment so low in South Dakota, we have to make sure anyone interested in coming back or moving here is aware of any positions that might be a good fit.
How much or little contact can they have with their Job Advisor?
That is completely up to the client. I have clients who email me once a week with questions on positions. I’ve been working with a certain client since I started with the program, so our emails are a little more in depth. Some only email occasionally with questions. We try to be as flexible as possible.
What’s the most important thing for someone who joins Dakota Roots to do?
Stay active and have a complete and accurate profile. It’s much easier for us to assist clients who maintain communication and provide us with direction on what they’re looking for.
What’s the best part of being a Dakota Roots Job Advisor?
The best part is when a client emails me to tell me they have a new position. The excitement and appreciation they show really sticks with you and is extremely rewarding.
