Finding A Job In Anchorage
August 14, 2017 | Barb Huntley
Whether you are looking for a job with your move to Anchorage or you are resident of Anchorage looking for something new, we wanted to put together a list of sources to help you with your job search.

1. LinkedIn 
Its 2017, you can’t deny that LinkedIn doesn't have any value to your career. You should be on LinkedIn with an updated profile and change your location to Anchorage, Alaska. This way recruiters in the area can see that you are living in Anchorage and could possibly reach out to you about job openings. Use the job search tool and make sure you are looking for employment within the Anchorage area.

2. Attend the Job Fair
A job fair will be held on September 27 at the Alaska Airlines Center. This is a great way to meet future employers face-to-face and hand them your resume in person. Make sure you have double checked your resume and you are dressed for the job you want.

3. Official State of Alaska Website
The Alaska State website (http://alaska.gov ) has a whole section dedicated to helping its residents find work. The site provides job listings from private companies, the state government, and federal government. They want these jobs filled so look through their listings and start applying!

4. Indeed.com
Indeed is the world's #1 job site. Indeed has become the catalyst for putting the world to work. It helps companies of all sizes hire the best talent and offers the best opportunity for job seekers to get hired. Upload your resume to Indeed and start searching!

5. The Old-Fashioned Way
Do your research on local companies and if you see one that you think you would be the perfect fit, take your resume and go introduce yourself in person. The worst case scenario is they say they aren’t interested. Best case scenario, they like the confidence you have and your interest in their company. They can always keep your resume on hand if they aren’t hiring now and consider you for future jobs.
