I am pleased to partner with the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce in presenting the 3rd Annual Hire Leeward Job and Career Fair. The fair will be held on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the University of Hawaii – West Oahu Campus, 91-1001 Farrington Highway, Kapolei, HI 96707. The event is free and open to the public.
Participating businesses and organizations represent a wide field of companies from health care, food service, retail, union organizations to hotels. The 3rd Annual Job and Career Fair will also feature a networking opportunity for businesses and organizations who may not have immediate job openings but would like to share future career opportunities with attendees.
The Hire Leeward initiative is a five – year plan with the following goals:
1. Encourage Leeward residents to seek Leeward jobs.
2. Reduce traffic congestion to town.
3. Encourage better coordination with Leeward job employers and job seekers.
4. Encourage Leeward residents to buy from Leeward companies.
5. Hold job training events.
6. Improve the quality of life for Leeward residents.
The registration period is open from now to February 20, 2015 at $125.00 (Early Bird Special – $100.00 if paid by December 5, 2015.) After February 21, 2015 a late registration fee will apply and a $25.00 late fee will apply totaling $150.00. Register online www.hireleeward.com by clicking on the “Employer Participation” tab.
