Finding Alaska Jobs: The Basics


Make no bones about it, looking for Anchorage jobs is a challenging and often difficult task. Even for those with plenty of job experience and confidence it can be a harrying experience. We'd like to give you some easy-to-follow basics to help you relax and make your search not only more effective, but hopefully, a lot less stressful as well.

1. Use connections: family members and friends or even friends of friends can be beneficial to your job search. It doesnÂ’t hurt to ask around. Someone may know someone who has an opening available. They could also help you become aware of openings that might not be advertised.

2. Know your skills: reflect on your past experiences and try to find something from them that could make you more marketable. This need not apply to past jobs; any volunteer or extracurricular activities in your past could give your resume a boost.

3. Make finding a job your full time job: this is a lot simpler than it sounds. If you are in a dry spell during your job search, simply make job searching your primary day-to-day activity. Set yourself a goal of putting in a certain number of job applications a day. Always remember that job searching is a numbers game. Your chances of at least landing an interview are much higher if you put out 20 resumes as opposed to five.
