Q. I think Alaska would be a nice place to live. Would I be able to find a job there? I love the natural beauty found there. -Brent
A. Hi Brent: It is a wonderful place to live. Been here 34 years and still stare in amazement at the scenery every time I go out in the car. I think you would be able to find a job here, even though I don’t know what it is you do….because Alaska is a state of great opportunity, with many occupations represented here. Some people work all year round; but there are folks who make enough in the summer, and live simply enough that they can coast thru our winter wonderland. I have some websites and #’s you can use to start your search. You can see what’s available on www.jobs.state.ak.us You can also look at the classifieds in the Anchorage Daily News to get an idea. That is www.adn.com I don’t have #’s for Fairbanks area since I am more familiar with Anchorage area, but since it is our biggest city anyway, it is a good place to start your search. The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce telephone # is (907) 272-2401 and the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is (907) 276-4118. Good luck. Y’all come!
