Employer Resources
Thank you for your interest in hiring Dakota Wesleyan students and graduates! Our academic programs are designed to support critical and collaborative thinking in addition to technical skill. Each of our students is trained in effective communication, global awareness and strategic creativity. Additionally, we focus on developing individual strengths and talents to ensure professional, successful graduates.

The Center for Talent Development is here to assist you in finding the right employee for your organization. We offer the following services to employers:

Career FairsAs an employer, you have access to several events throughout the year to meet Dakota Wesleyan students and graduates and promote opportunities within your organization. Click here for a list of events and details for each.

Internship ServicesDWU’s internship program is designed to allow students a great deal of flexibility in selecting and arranging their internship experiences. Students may choose to receive academic credit for their internships as part of their studies, or they may use their internship experience as an opportunity for personal learning goals and career exploration.

Employers may want an intern to work on special projects, perform specific assignments, or rotate through several areas of the organization. Internship experiences are found in a variety of settings – for profit, nonprofit and government.

If your organization already has an internship program, consider selecting DWU students as interns. If you are just beginning an internship program, we would be happy to work with you in structuring your internship program. Please post available internships with the Mitchell Department of Labor or Mitchellhasjobs.com
