 The Fairbanks work force is younger and more eductated than the national average. Not only are we more highly educated, but we also have partnerships between the University and business community to ensure we have the right employees with the right skills available at the right time. Our labor force’s skills range from welders to Microsoft CNEs, from service workers to arctic researchers.
