Fairbanks is full of endless possibilities. It’s a great place to raise a family, embrace economic opportunity, expand your cultural horizons, be close to the outdoors, and meet warm and  welcoming people. This is a place where it’s possible to make your own opportunities. Expand your career. Find a home.  Reinvent yourself. Find a quality of life that you may not have ever experienced.

We find fulfillment in the natural world around us, enjoying a simple life, a sense of self-reliance, and peace of living in tune with the awesome beauty and challenges that living in Alaska provides. With the climate and the vast wilderness surrounding the interior  many Fairbanksans take full advantage of the abundant indoor and outdoor recreation activities available with their friends and families. We also enjoy attending community events that go on throughout the year. We have great healthcare and the schools are excellent for kids who live here in the Fairbanks North Star Borough.

This is still a frontier town in many ways. We’re looking for strong individuals who embrace life’s challenges with a sense of humor, independence, intelligence and a kind heart. If you’re ready to leave traffic jams, crowds and the rat race behind, and still live somewhere affordable, then this is the place for you. We invite you, to come to Fairbanks and see what it’s all about…
