- Alaska Career Lattice Alaska

Alaska Career Lattice:  The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development's Research and Analysis Section launched a new online job-seeking tool, the Alaska Career Lattice, in December 2011.   The tool is based on extensive analysis of the Alaska Occupational Database, informed by required quarterly unemployment insurance reports from Alaska's employers, by tracking the occupation-to-occupation movements of workers from 2001 to 2009.  Researchers also incorporated extensive analysis of job characteristics from O*NET in developing the tool.  The lattice includes all occupations and provides specific focus on green, healthcare and STEM occupations.


The tool provides value to a broad array of audiences:  educators and school counselors who provide guidance to students on career choices; incumbent workers who wish to progress in their careers; unemployed individuals who need to leverage their existing skills without extensive additional training; and career counselors who need to assess the experience and skills of their clients. By looking at the actual occupation transitions Alaskans have made, users can benefit from real-life data in making informed choices about next steps in preparing for career options.  For additional information, visit
