        • Holland America-Princess Alaska
          My name is Lynette Henderson and I am an assistant manager in Guest Services for Holland America-Princess Alaska.  A few months ago, a couple of colleagues and I visited Mat-Su Career Tech to give a presentation on our company here in Alaska.  We really enjoyed being there and sharing information with you and your students.  

          At this time, our website is available to take applications for the upcoming Summer 2015 season.  In Guest Services, there are positions available for applicants 16 and older.  Guest Service Hosts assist our guests going to/from the cruise ships, land tours, airport, their hotel stay in Anchorage, and day excursions.  Luggage Services employees give great service by making sure that each guest's luggage arrives to their destinations in a timely and accurate manner.  Teachers also make great employees and have been assets to our seasonal staff.

          We left brochures, cards, and other materials that give more information when we were there, but if you would like more or have questions, I would be happy to assist in any way that I can.  I actually live very close to the school in Wasilla so I could drop materials off or visit anytime.  My information to contact me is below.

          The website address to apply and receive detailed information is:  www.alaskatourjobs.com.  Again, if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact me.

          Sincerely,
          Lynette Henderson   |  Anchorage Guest Services   |   HAP Alaska-Yukon
