BBNC is an Alaska Native Corporation formed pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA), which was passed by Congress to address aboriginal land claims and promote the welfare of Alaska Natives. BBNC aspires to provide benefits to all its shareholders by creating employment opportunities for shareholders and their families. Therefore, in accordance with the intent of ANCSA to benefit Alaska Natives, as well as the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, P.L. 93-638, BBNC grants an employment preference first to BBNC shareholders, their spouses or descendants and second, to Alaska Natives, who meet the qualifications of the position.
The BBNC Shareholder Development Department tracks and monitors the implementation of the Shareholder Hire Preference across its operations. Below is the process and communication you can expect to occur as a shareholder when you apply for a BBNC or Subsidiary position:
- Upon submission of an application for an open BBNC job, the shareholder applicant should receive an email notice that their application has been received.
- Once received, the shareholder applicants are screened to verify shareholder status and applications are reviewed to determine if the shareholder meets the minimum qualifications for the job.
- If the shareholder does not meet the minimum qualification, they will be notified via email that their application has been reviewed but they do not meet the requirements for the position.
- If the shareholder meets the minimum qualifications, they will be contacted for an interview and subsequently contacted to notify about selection or non-selection for the job.
If you have submitted an application and have not been contacted (via email or phone) by BBNC or the subsidiary company within 1 week of applying for a job, please contact Shareholder Development at 907-278-3602.
