Find information about Alaska jobs at http://www.jobs.state.ak.us, the official website of the Alaska Job Center Network.
Www.jobs.state.ak.us is the web address for the The Alaska Job Center Network web site. This website can also be visited through the “Alaska Job Bank” link found on the home page of the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOLWD) web site (http://labor.state.ak.us).
The main function of this website is to provide a doorway to the website for ALEXsys, Alaska’s Job Bank. ALEXsys stands for Alaska Labor Exchange system. By clicking on the image of Alaska map with the ALEXsys sign in the center of the page, you can enter the web site of Alexsys, the Alaska Job Bank at http://alexsys.labor.state.ak.us/.
The Alexsys.labor.state.ak.us site is designed for both job seekers and employers. If you are new to this site, you can use the Guess Access link to visit Alexsys. But it only gives you limited access. In order to enjoy the full services at Alexsys, you have to register for an account. After account registration, you will get a UserID and password. With these pieces of information, you can log in to your Alexsys account to access specialty services. If you are a job seeker, this site can help you to create a resume, find occupational information and locate position openings in your region. If you need to improve your skills or gain more knowledge, it may also be helpful to visit this site since it also provides education and training information. If you are an employer, you may want to find a candidate for your business or post a job at the Alaska Job Bank. If you are interested in learning more about labor market information, or about information which can help you make a decision on starting salaries to offer, this is also a good site to visit.
Besides the link to ALEXsys, this site also contains many other useful links scattered in 3 sections including “Main Menu”, “Hot Topics” and “Quick Links”. For instance, if you are actively looking for new jobs in Alaska, you may find the ”Job Seeker Resources” (in the Main Menu) section very informative, where you can find military recruiting, local government and other Alaska jobs info. If you are interested in getting a position at Job Fair or an on-site recruitment, you may want to check the recruiting schedules using the Calendar for Job Fairs and Recruitment. The “Job Fairs Calendar” link can be found in the list of quick links on the right hand side of the page.
I am glad to know the ALEXsys website. I think it is informative and helpful. Next time if someone asks me: How to find a job in Alaska or how to do an employment search in Alaska, I will tell them that the Alaska Job Center Network (www.jobs.state.ak.us) is good site to go to.
