Meet Krystal

Workforce Challenge

In the summer of 2009, Krystal, an Augustana College student and graduate of Mobridge High School, needed to obtain work experience and gain exposure to career options. The South Dakota Department of Labor provided Krystal with a summer internship at the North Central South Dakota Economic Development (NCSDEC) office in Mobridge.

Workforce Solution

Krystal was placed in the position of researcher for NCSDEC. During her work experience, she learned the importance of economic development. Her responsibilities included researching industry trends, surveying company needs, updating client databases and Web sites, and developing reports for board meetings and general communications.

Outcomes & Benefits

Though Magee is a psychology and sociology major, she says the experience prompted her to consider taking some business courses and possibly getting a similar job in the future.
