CIRI is pleased to announce its third annual Job and Resource Fair, scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015.

To increase the Job Fair’s relevance to attendees, CIRI has created an online survey to find out what types of employment opportunities and industries shareholders and descendants would like represented at the 2015 Job and Resource Fair. To complete the survey, visit

The 2014 Job Fair created the opportunity for more than 150 shareholders and descendants of all ages to network with representatives from CIRI, CIRI Alaska Tourism Corporation, other CIRI-affiliated entities and other employers. A number of shareholders and descendants attended a resume workshop sponsored by Cook Inlet Tribal Council in preparation for the Fair. CIRI shareholders and descendants also had an opportunity to acquire interview clothing free of charge to increase their potential for success while job seeking.

“The fair was a good opportunity to meet with and further understand what certain employers are looking for,” commented a 2014 attendee.

A wide variety of industries, including construction, finance and law enforcement agencies, and several nonprofit companies, were represented by more than twenty vendors at the 2014 Fair. The representatives were pleased with the turnout and the quality of CIRI shareholder and descendant applicants. When asked the main reason for attending the Job Fair, the majority of these vendors cited, “To increase Alaska Native hire.”

CIRI is looking for vendors interested in hosting booths at the 2015 Job and Resource Fair. Space is limited, so if your organization is interested in being a vendor, please contact the CIRI Human Resources Department at (907) 274-8638.

As the 2015 CIRI Job and Resource Fair draws closer, additional information will be provided about the companies scheduled to attend, what positions they are seeking to fill and how shareholders and descendants can prepare for the event.
