Default Adak Job seekers?

If you were looking to hire workers in Adak where would you reach out to find job seekers? It seems there is not much in Adak, no newspaper or radio frequency... where do job seekers go? I saw someone was moving from Bethel to Adak for a job... is it useful to go to other cities that aren't a 1,000 miles away in hopes that the person would move to Adak?

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Adak is now a small native community of about 160 people that is over 1/2 a million $$ in debt over heating fuel. not sure I'd be too keen on going there or purposely looking for a job to go there.

I was there in 92-93 with the Navy. It was really a nice place back then but there was also about 2500 people and a thriving town.

There are a few employers that recruit occassionally. The TSA fills screener positions at the airport. The City of Adak, Aleut Enterprise, TDX Power and the Adak Medical Clinic are a few to check out. They have all recruited for individuals on ALEXsys.
