Alaska jobs website unavailable due to external, vendor outage


June 30, 2022

(SitNews) Juneau, Alaska - The Alaska jobs website,, is currently not operational due to outages experienced by the external vendor, and is expected to be out of service for the next several days.

The employment registration process for new Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants, and the ability to utilize the system for job search and matching of Alaska job seekers to employers, will resume once the system is back in service. Claims filing and processing is a separate system and is not impacted.

UI claimants needing to register and create a resume should continue to check the availability of AlaskaJobs to complete these requirements.

"Our system vendor is working diligently to fix the issue impacting multiple states, and we hope to have AlaskaJobs back up and running very soon to serve Alaska’s jobseekers and employers,” stated Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Dr. Tamika L. Ledbetter.

Due to the outage, unemployed Alaskans are also encouraged to contact their local Alaska Job Center for job search assistance at (877) 724-2539 or and visit third-party job sites for employment opportunities.

This is an ongoing issue, and we will provide additional information as the situation develops. For more, watch for alerts at
