The notion of a 'dream' job means different things to different people.

It can be a specific location, a certain level of compensation, hours, or a field of interest.

Whatever your 'dream' job is a new survey says you have a good chance of finding it in South Dakota.

The survey says South Dakota is offsetting losses in ag-related businesses with solid growth in manufacturing where 2,200 jobs have been added in the past year, a 5 percent increase.
