Click on any occupation title to go to that occupation’s career lattice page.
Important note: A worker does not necessarily have to traverse every rung to advance to or from the focus occupation. Occupations above and below the focus occupation are directly related to the focus occupation, but they are not necessarily directly related to each other. For example, actors and athletes are both related to agents of artists, performers, and athletes, but actors and athletes are not directly related to each other.
Analysis and development of the career lattice is by the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Research and Analysis Section.
