SD Week of Work: Check out on-demand videos from businesses

The South Dakota Week of Work is coming up April 19-23, and on-demand videos from businesses across the state are now posted on the 2021 Schedule page of the event website. Videos are organized by career cluster and spotlight South Dakota professionals talking about a wide variety of professions.

Tuesday, April 20, through Thursday, April 22, students can participate virtually in live panel discussions with South Dakota business and industry professionals. Students can choose from a variety of panels each day at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. CDT. Almost 100 panelists from 27 communities will represent career fields in agriculture, business, public service, private sector service, science and healthcare, and manufacturing and construction, for a total of 36 panel discussions.

Panel discussions will be recorded and made available for later viewing.

The week’s events are open to all middle and high school students. Registration information, career exploration resources, and a schedule can be found on the 2021 Schedule page of the South Dakota Week of Work website.

At the end of the week, a live wrap-up session with information about soft skills, job shadow experiences, and internships will help students take the next steps in their career paths.

Everyone who participates in the week’s activities is encouraged to share photos and success stories using #SDWeekofWork on social media.

The South Dakota Week of Work is sponsored by the South Dakota departments of Labor and Regulation and Education in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the South Dakota Retailers Association, and the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
