“I didn’t realize South Dakota had a program where a person was assigned to help you get the career you wanted.”
After graduating from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Mike thought opportunity only awaited him outside of the state. He and his family followed a path that took them to Iowa, Ohio and eventually Indiana. But no matter where they lived, it never felt like home.
Mike began looking at his options in South Dakota. And he was surprised at what he found.
“I didn’t realize South Dakota actually had a program where a person was assigned to help you get the career you wanted.”
While working with his Dakota Roots personal Job Advisor, Mike was overwhelmed by the flurry of opportunity his home state offered him.
“When I graduated there didn’t appear to be a lot of opportunities like these, but now that we’re back in South Dakota, I see that the job market is really growing.”
