If you’re a college student looking for summer employment and adventure, consider looking West — *way* West. All the way to Alaska. There are more opportunities in that vast state than there are people to fill them! Alaska summer jobs include everything from nature and adventure guides to seasonal biologists to cooks, cleaners and service staff at hotels and restaurants. The pay range varies but is usually on the low side. Free room and board and even comped transportation sweeten the deal for many job seekers, though.
