Meet Daniel

Workforce Challenge

Daniel, 16 years old, is attending Spearfish High School and has an interest in working outdoors with his hands. He was referred to the Department of Labor's Summer Work Experience Program.

Workforce Solution

Daniel obtained a work experience opportunity with Dakota Rental in Spearfish from June through August 2009. As a customer service representative, Daniel helped customers determine what equipment or items would work best for their project or event, wrote the order, and performed the set-up, basic repair and maintenance on the rentals.

Outcomes & Benefits

Both Daniel and the worksite were pleased with the work experience. He will continue to help as needed throughout the winter, and Dakota Rental anticipates they will have full-time work for him again next summer. Congratulations, Daniel!
