Alaska Employment Analysis

( Data Date : August 2017 )

 Alaska Employment Data

Alaska, “the Last Frontier,” offers unique adventures, challenges and opportunities. At the same time, at the end of the day, the state’s economic and employment trends also parallel many of its mainland peers. For example, while you may be able to find work in the tourism or fishing industry, jobs are seasonal; and oil production in the state has greatly slowed in recent years.
