The State of Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development reports that the seasonally adjusted jobless rate (currently 6.6 percent) in Alaska has remained relatively stable for the past two years, while the national rate has continued to decline. On average, Alaska’s unemployment rate is about two percentage points above the national level. So there are jobs out there, but do you have what you need to go get the job you want? Are you ready to start the career that will give you satisfaction, as well as a paycheck?
