There are a lot of plumbers around Fairbanks, some without work. You may want to check with some of the local unions and see what they have to say, since these plumbers are inline waiting for jobs. You want to have a job first, before you move, unless you have enough cash to travel back home if you don't find work. Employment is not really that hot at the moment, and construction during the summer is predicted to go down. However, don't give up and keep on filing job applications. Sometimes the school districts hire workers, specially certified ones (CT1 -CT3).

If you have a good work ethic, you more than likely can find work, but always have a backup plan to get back home if it don't work out.
