Workforce Wednesday: Opportunities within the Municipality of Anchorage


The Municipality of Anchorage is hosting a free “job shop” aimed at supporting residents looking for employment. The program started in Mountain View and has expanded to the Z.J. Loussac Public Library. The job shops are part of Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz’s goal to create employment opportunities and be innovative in Alaska’s uncertain economic times.

“If you look at the bones of the Alaska economy, we are strong, still a resource development state, there is still plenty of opportunity,” Berkowitz said Wednesday.

There are hundreds of jobs that the Municipality offers, from information technology to law enforcement, maintenance and more. One city department that’s “in full growth mode,” according to the mayor, is the police department. Berkowitz has pushed for the department’s growth, which he now says has nearly 420 officers. An academy is set to start this summer.

A full list of Anchorage Municipality jobs can be found at the city’s website. More information can be found at the Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium’s website.
