Can someone help me? I keep on running into controversial answers to my question
My husband works full time in a medical field here in VA. He wants to send in some resumes and talk to several medical centers/hospitals in AK. Does he have a chance at all, considering that he's nonresident? Will they just toss his papers out since he's not there yet or will they actually call him out for an interview? Our plans to move and become resident there are serious, however we're a one-income family (I'm a stay-at-home mom with small kids) so he can't quit his work before he found a new one, also for health insurance reasons. I saw several jobs that require the applicant to be Alaskan resident and I'm discouraged We won't run back here after a year, either, our plans are permanent - but will anybody actually consider it when hiring from out-of-state?
Thanks a lot!

If you do a search you should find some info within the ak forum. I think there are a handfull of folks coming up here that found jobs in the medical field, while out of state.

Thanks! I know it gets annoying to hear the same questions but we're stuck with dial up right now and it takes forever to load a page which cuts down on the time that I can actually usefully use for data collection while the kids are sleeping. So asking a question seems easier than go through threads. Sorry and thanks again!

I know the Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau hires many from out of state. Here's a list of their current openings:

I think there are other doctor and specialist positions that are open and not on the list. What does your husband do in the medical field?
