We are your job source connection


Alaska’s People works to connect Alaska Native/American Indian people in the Cook Inlet region to employment and training opportunities and actively recruits the best candidates for CITC’s workforce.

Paid apprenticeship opportunities are designed to provide individuals with progressive work experience and build organizational leadership capacity through on-the-job training and skills development.








Located on the first floor of our Nat’uh Service Center, Alaska’s People’s full-service career center provides access to a network of employment and training opportunities and professional development tools, including computers, fax and scan services, online development training, career assessment, job-search assistance, and employment support.


Career counselors assist individuals in developing professional goals and provide resume support, interview coaching, and connections to job openings and training resources.


Alaska’s People hosts regular community job fairs and virtual and in-person recruitment events for key stakeholders and community partners. Job fairs promote employment opportunities for both job seekers and employers while creating networking opportunities for workforce development.
