The Career Center, formerly the Career and Academic Planning [CAP] Center, provides services that assists students with planning for careers. Through this office, a student can visit with a career counselor; take an interest skill inventory or participate in career development workshops. The Career Center's Career Resource Library provides information on more than 21,000 careers, major employers in the United States, various academic majors at South Dakota State University, and the employment status of SDSU graduates.

The Career Center offers experiential education programs. These programs provide the student an opportunity to integrate classroom study with periods of planned and supervised professional work experience with cooperating businesses, industry, and governmental agencies.

The Career Center also offers help to students searching for part-time, summer, intern, or full-time employment. The staff at the Center offers workshops and individual assistance to help students prepare resumes, develop interview skills, improve job-hunting strategies, and contact employers.

The staff at the Career Center instructs a two credit course designed to help students become more effective learners. This course is called "Mastering Lifetime Learning Skills" and is offered each semester. In addition, students searching for tutoring assistance, or who have concerns about test anxiety may find help at the Career Center.
