There were 88 unique locations who joined across the state, from individuals to classrooms to teachers who shared the event through their own Zoom link. Students were able to ask questions through the Zoom chat and through interactive Google Slides.
The Zoom recording is available to share with classrooms, students/families, colleagues, and community group: Watch here.

In June Trends: This month we look at the oil industry’s history of employment swings and how this current round of losses differs. This issue includes an update on COVID-19-related job losses based on the first available detailed data, and on who received unemployment benefits in April as a result.
Trends begins 2019 with the Alaska Department of Labor & Workforce Development annual jobs forecast. For this year, they forecast a small amount of overall job growth. Regionally, the Fairbanks area’s employment will grow the most, largely tied to the preparations to house two F-35 squadrons at Eielson Air Force base over the next couple of years as well as the accompanying personnel and their families.
