Virtual Job Service

Welcome to the Virtual Job Service page. DLR is excited to expand our service delivery and meet your needs virtually. Through Microsoft Teams, you can receive the same supports and services you are accustomed to receiving at your Job Service office through a computer or phone at a location comfortable to you.

Whether you are changing careers or expanding your skill set, the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation (DLR) is here to help. Before we can help you reach your goals, read through and complete the tasks on this page. If you need help along the way, please contact us and someone will reach out to assist you within three business days.
