Your Alaska Job Awaits...

Job Landscape in Alaska


Alaska offers a unique economic picture. Compared to the mainland United States, Alaska has a significantly higher average wage across the board in nearly every occupation. However, Alaska’s cost of living is higher than the national average.

The Last Frontier offers plenty of jobs in the commercial fishing industry, as Alaska leads the nation in production of fresh fish and seafood like salmon, cod, halibut, shrimp, and crab. Aside from the fishing industry, office administration and sales positions occupy a large portion of Alaska’s job opportunities. Food prep and service is another sector of high employment, followed closely by education and training.

For the last half of 2013, Alaska's unemployment rate held steady at about 6.4 percent. That figure falls below the national average (6.7 percent), so the state’s economy is ripe with opportunity. Cities like Juneau, Petersburg, Homer, Wasilla, and Klawock offer thousands of jobs in various different industries.
