This week on Workforce Wednesday, we sit down with Joe Bovee and Katie Finnesand of Ahtna, Inc., to find out about jobs in their region.
“The Ahtna region extends from the Canadian border, all the way to the Denali National Park, the Alaska Range, to the Chugach Mountains,” said Bovee.
When asked what sort of jobs in the region were available, Bovee mentioned work in natural resources, tribal agencies, state agencies, school districts and utilities. Bovee Estimated there were about 100 different jobs available. These jobs range from full time to seasonal.
When asked about educational requirements, Finnesand states that a preferred candidate would have: “An associates or bachelors degree in natural resources, or a related field such as biology, wildlife management, or environmental sciences.”
As far as pay, generally, expect a range of about $18 to $20 an hour for entry-level and up to $30 an hour for experienced candidates. These scales range over the numerous jobs available, though.
