When you think of internships in Alaska you might think about large expanses of ice and warm winter jackets rather than career opportunities. Despite Alaska being the largest state (more than twice the size of Texas) but the least populated, there are still plenty of job and internship opportunities in Alaska. Over 50% of the population in Alaska lives in the Anchorage metropolitan area.
In Alaska and Anchorage in particular, a number of industries are booming. You can easily find energy internships (Alaska makes up for 22% of the nation’s oil production), transportation internships, (Anchorage International Airport sees a ton of trans-atlantic cargo flights), and tourism internships. Summer internships in Alaska are particularly appealing as summer temperatures range from sixty to eighty degrees and this is a particularly beautiful time of year to visit the state.
