Business Services | Recruitment and Hiring

DLR provides and facilitates support, education and training to strengthen business in South Dakota. We make a coordinated effort to partner with government, non-profit, business and educational organizations to provide the tools and resources necessary for sustainable employment and economic self-sufficiency for the citizens of South Dakota.


Use our online SDWORKS jobs database to post job listings or get one-on-one, customized support. DLR encourages employers to list the starting wage or wage range on job orders. Listings without a wage are often ignored. The hourly pay or salary is one of the most important pieces of information to potential applicants. Pay transparency can be a powerful recruitment tool.


DLR has a variety of programs and resources to help in your hiring needs and access to several targeted groups of workers.

DLR also provides a general application template for businesses (Microsoft Word format).
