SDWP staff at the Opportunity Summit


What we do for work is much more than simply a job, or a career path. Our work is central to who we are, what we value, and what we choose to do with our lives. Our focus is to support everyone on their career journey to know which jobs are out there and how to acquire the skills and experience needed to achieve career goals. Careers are a choice. We are here to help. Let us know how we can support you in your journey.

—Peter Callstrom, SDWP CEO
