On this Workforce Wednesday we are taking a look at careers in tourism, specifically in Bristol Bay.

Alaska saw a record number of visitors this past year, and that number is expected to grow, especially in Bristol Bay, which is known for its world-class fishing and luxury lodges. There's never been a  better time to try to jump into the tourist industry.

Most of the work is seasonal but covers a wide range of positions and opportunities: from pilots and tour guides, to maintenance and customer service-- there are positions for a wide range of professional skills.

On average, an employee working in Bristol Bay tourism can expect to make around $10 an hour, with a lot of overtime included. With lodging covered, you won't have to worry about losing income to rent.
