There are damn few jobs in Alaska now. Everyone that worked in the Gulf oil patch is flooding every company in Alaska with resumes. With the collapse in oil prices there have been thousands of layoffs. There is a huge state budget shortfall and entire state is in a depression. The Alaska Comgressional delegation is not as powerful as it use to be so the federal funding for bridges to nowhere and other pork barrel projects has stopped. The state is also declining in population because people are moving out.
Your job prospects with a 100 ton license would be better in the charter boat fleet. No STCW or QMED required.
I suggest spending your first training money on BT, QMED Oiler and DDE courses. You probably have the seatime and some of the courses significantly reduce the required seatime.
