Hello, I am a New York State IT Specialist considering relocating to Palmeror nearby areas in Alaska. My biggest concern is the reservation of state jobsfor Alaskan residents, which I understand. However, I do not want to relocateto Alaska and wind up unemployed and having a house to pay for. Does anyonehave tips on acquiring jobs (specifically Information Technology) in that areaof Alaska from long distance? In addition, I would appreciate the best way totravel from NY to Alaska, if I did not want to fly. I have 8 weeks of vacationso I do not have to rush there. This is just the tip of the iceberg ofquestions I have, but I know people are busy so I keep them to two. Thank youin advance

Flu up and rent a car and go around to places and look for a job, put in applications. Check out the place and then go home and wait for a job offer. If you are lucky you will get one, then you can move up.

I agree. Use a couple of weeks of your vacation to come up and do some face to face with potential employers.

Rent first, last and always. If you don't like your neighbors, you can move. You can't move a home - exactly.
