Alaska Summer Jobs
Alaska's seasonal workforce is like no other! Between May and September the state's tourism industry is absolutely bustling, and there aren't enough Alaskans to fill job openings. Several large employers run lodges, bus and rail tours - these companies recruit thousands of people from the lower-48 for jobs ranging from drivers and chefs to servers, front desk staff, and baggage porters.
Then hundreds of small companies need staff for cruise ship operations, city tours, gift shop sales, food & beverage services, and more.
Ask anyone who has done it and they'll say the same thing: a summer job in Alaska is unforgettable. It's more than a job because you're meeting interesting people and seeing amazing things - think Wildlife and Glaciers - while also earning a paycheck.
