Juneau Summer Jobs and Seasonal Employment
Named after the gold prospector Joe Juneau, Alaska’s capital city is as rich in culture as it is in natural beauty. Juneau is located at the base of Mount Juneau at sea level, providing ample opportunity for canoeing, kayaking, and other watersports for after work or on the weekends. If you’re looking for a unique job experience in Alaska, Juneau provides that opportunity.
When looking at any of our Juneau summer jobs, understand that while it is extremely beautiful here, the only way to access the city is by boat or plane. But just because the city is remote doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do. With a population of over 30,000, it offers the amenities of any city the same size. And as we mentioned, there’s plenty of adventure to be had!
