Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Everyone knows that Alaska has beautiful scenery and wildlife, but it’s almost impossible to describe without being there. Alaska is home to the tallest mountain in the United States, hosts huge glaciers, natural rain forests, unique wildlife, tasty fresh seafood along with modern towns and cities. People who are offered jobs in Alaska shouldn’t hesitate to consider moving there. Sure, Alaska may be quite cold in the winter with little daylight, but life their can offer brand new exciting experiences that more than make up for the cold winters and short daylight hours.

Of course, no matter how beautiful Alaska may be, it would be hard to move there without enough jobs to employ the population. Luckily, Alaska has a thriving economy which is strengthened by the vast amount of natural resources, primarily petroleum, located within its borders. Seafood is also a big industry with the export of salmon, cod, Pollock and crab. Jobs also come from military bases in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Tourism from people visiting the beautiful landscape also makes up a good component of the economy. With an unemployment rate of 7.5%, Alaska’s employment prospects are better than the national average.

There are many different nature activities in which to take part in Alaska. Hiking is probably one of the most popular due to the lush rain forests and beautiful white capped mountains. There’s more real estate in Alaska to hike than any one person could possibly cover. There’s also white water rapids, skiing, canoeing, mountain biking, hunting and general exploring. Alaska is the perfect environment for anyone who is a fan of the outdoors. Anyone considering relocating to Alaska should contact a global relocation company that specializes in helping people move to this beautiful state.
