Keeping it Cool in Alaska: Jobs in Anchorage

Anchorage, in the US state of Alaska, has almost 300,000 residents—making it the state’s most populous city! Enveloped by Alaska’s Chugach Mountains, Anchorage appeals to visitors everywhere because of its potential inland excursions to Denali National Park and the coast. Many tourists also use Anchorage as a starting point to go to Mount Alyeska Resort, the Kenai Peninsula, and Portage Glacer.

Besides being a refueling stop for many international flights, as well as a main FedEx center, a lot of professionals also head on over to Anchorage for work, due to its economy.

The Local Economy of Anchorage

The biggest sectors of Anchorage are the military, transportation, the federal, state, and municipal governments, resource extraction, and tourism. There are many corporate headquarters in Anchorage as well. In the resource sector, Anchorage serves as host to multinational companies like ConocoPhillips and BP. In transportation, Era Aviation, Alaska Central Express, PenAir, and Hageland Aviation Services are located in Anchorage.

Nevertheless, the top employers in Anchorage are Providence Health and Services, which is Alaska’s leading healthcare provider; Wal-Mart, the biggest discount store in the country; Carrs/Safeway, a grocery chain; Fred Meyer, a one-stop shop; and ASRC Energy Services Alaska Inc., which is a gas service and oil company.

A Good Place to Work and Live

Even though the unemployment rate in Anchorage is 5.70%, slightly higher than the US unemployment of 5.20%; and its recent and future job growth only at 0.15% and 34.61%, respectively, the city makes up for it with its 0% sales and income tax rates! Because of this, Kiplinger named Anchorage as the most tax friendly city in the US. This means, that although job seekers might have a bit of a harder time looking for work, they can earn more because the cost of goods are cheaper and they have more of their income to spend. As a whole, the typical Anchorage household income is USD 78,121, much, much, higher than the national average household income of USD 53,482. This is probably why Anchorage, in 2013, was listed by Forbes as one of the best places for business and careers.
