In addition, customized job training is offered at the Career Learning Center.

Technical assistance is provided to help identify approaches and ideas necessary to develop a successful project.

The Dakota Seeds program provides internships and assistantships to college students and helps fill temporary workforce needs, while establishing a pipeline for permanent employees. Internships are opportunities for undergraduate students while assistantships are directed toward graduate students. For more information, visit the Dakota Seeds website.
