Jobs in Fairbanks, Alaska, United States

Fairbanks is a city located in the US state of Alaska. The city has a population of around 32,500 however if you include the surrounding metropolitan area of Fairbanks North Star Borough the population swells to just over a 100,000.

It is also the northernmost metropolitan area in the US, being just 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

Which means that it can get cold…

How Cold?

Fairbanks is often referred to as America’s coldest city. Average winter lows in the city run from −15 all the way down to −25 °F (−26.1 to −31.7 °C). In the summer months, the temperature range is between 70 and about 50 °F (21 and 10 °C).

So it’s cold!

The median house price is $190,200, the unemployment rate is 7.2% (2017) – much higher than both the national and state averages. Cost of living is 7.4% above the national average – though this still puts it below many Northern cities such as New York.

Personal Tax is very low in Alaska too, whilst all citizens are afforded a portion of the profits raised from the state’s oilfields – which can be a nice bonus every year!

The crime rate is higher than both the national and state averages.

The city is home to a remarkable amount of recreational facilities and festivals that draw many visitors from outside the state in particular during the winter. If you are a winter sports fan, then Fairbanks would be a great place for you to live. Facilities exist to participate in every winter sport imaginable, and the city hosts a number of winter and arctic games every year.

Economic Activity in Fairbanks

As the second largest city in the state, Fairbanks is an important commercial and transportation hub with its own International Airport.

There are two military bases and 17,000 military personnel based in and around the city, bringing with them a contribution to the local economy of some $390 million per year.

Servicing their needs, along with the large tourist population, means that service and sales are strong sectors within the city, along with education (owing to the university) and transportation (owing to the international airport).
