No, we're too busy trying to keep our own residents employed, so find your own job.

Your best bet is to move up & look for a job. I plan on doing something similar a little later this year.

You can also check this lilnk:

Alaska Job Center Network

The newspaper in Anchorage: ADN.com

Just be sure you have enough money to live off of if you come without having a job. You'd need at least a good 8 months reserve for rent, food, gas, etc. maybe even more months depending on how the economy goes. Good luck.

From what I have read about AK, it sounds like a beautiful place with friendly people.

I guess I could get use to the climate. 6 months of darkness? yikes.

No sunlight at all. You have to drive with your lights on 24/7.

Polar bears roaming all over the place, too.


It sucks.
