Posted on October 26, 2020
You have hundreds of South Dakota career choices open to you. How do you know where to start? Can you trust what you find? The Labor Market Information Center (LMIC) not only gathers and provides unbiased and reliable state workforce stats, but also develops career materials you can count on. Check out these Career Exploration and Planning resources to explore your career options and make informed career decisions:
- Take the South Dakota Career Interest Survey (SDCIS). If you have no careers in mind, it will steer you toward broad areas of interest. If you already have some ideas, but not a definite career plan, it will help refine your options.
- Use the virtual labor market data system to learn more about occupations. Explore occupations based on results of your SDCIS. Or explore within a Career Cluster. You can also research apprenticeship career opportunities.
- Don’t know where to begin on the career decision making journey? Career Destinations breaks it down into simpler steps. It also suggests resources to use along the way.
- Want to focus on the highest paying careers with the best outlook? Check out South Dakota’s Hot Careers. They are good-paying jobs projected to need the most workers in the future. A Top 30 flier zeros in even further to the best paying occupations projected to be in the highest demand. Learn more about each Top 30 career in its Occupational Profile.
