Jobs in Hawai'i

14 posts in this topic

Hi, I was just wondering a good place to search for jobs in Hawai'i, if there are any online sites that actually have a good amount of postings?

Thanks

Dave

Hello, there's quite a few sites, but it also depends on the field of work that you are interested in. Is there are particular field that you are interested in? Also, do you have a place to stay when you get there? Rent is very very expensive there right now, because the housing/rental market is very tight, especially, for affordables. It probably won't go back down for another couple years or so.

Here are some sites:

Hmm i'm a bit surprised about you not being able to find jobs in social work. I'd imagine that there are probably quite a few opportunities in that field but you'd probably have to network locally for that, a good way would be through HPU. Some things aren't normally advertised online. Also, temp agencies are another great way to get your foot in the door. I've done it and was successful, so you could probably send your resume and so on to places like that.

Well, in Honolulu there are no true ghettos like, what you'd find in many major US cities but there are quite a few older run down areas. Most of what some might consider to be ghettos in Honolulu would probably be located in parts of Waipahu, Wahiawa, Kalihi-Palama, KPT, Mayor-Wrights, etc mainly because thats where the majority of the low-income housing and so forth in the city is concentrated but its also the stepping stone for many of the newly arrived immigrants (and refugees) from places that are poverty stricken. Most of those areas are probably over 50% or close to it foreign-born. The majority from Samoa, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Chuuk, Marshall Islands, Pohnpei, Burma, China, etc.

As for students that go to HPU many live in the condo towers nearby or parts of Chinatown. The housing stock in that area is old for the most part but you can find a wide range of affordables to very expensive. However, the bus system is very good so you could live outward to places like Makiki (lots of condos/apartments there), Punchbowl-Wilder, Ala Moana-Kakaako, etc Those places are still fairly close and you could even bike it if you dont want to bus it.

BTW HPU is a great school from what i hear, although expensive, its very, very international and diverse. Students come from over a 110 countries. That University has also gained quite a reputation for many of its programs. Its also near the growing arts district, chinatown, and great hole in the wall restaurants.

Please ask away if you have more questions.

Just a follow up to those sites, one of them had government listings, and I found over 47 jobs in social services in gvt alone, and quite a few of them specialized in things I am very interested. Like I said early, I wish I knew when to apply etc, because of the move and what makes sense/doesn't I am kind of in a hard spot. oh well... I guess I take that on by moving this far. :rolleyes:

^I'd say start sending resumes out now to get your name in there and if you can find numbers give them a call and tell them about yourself and so on they may be able to refer you to the right people or give you the info you need. Also, i figured there'd be quite a few openings in that field, the state is very govt heavy so thats probably where the majority are located but i'm sure they are not all limited to govt.

BTW you don't have to worry about jet aircraft in Wahiawa, there is an old airstation called Wheeler which is connected to Schofield a major army base but they mostly fly helicopters. Airforce operations are at Hickman next to Pearl Harbor and mainly Air Guard/Reserve. While on the windward side near Kailua the Marines have an airbase but its on the otherside of the island. And as far as i know the navy doesn't have any fighter jets based on O'ahu anymore. Anyhow, back to Wahiawa, its nice and cool up there i love the weather up there and the clean crisp air but the town is very run down and old. However, there are other places near it that are nice places to live.
