Sen. Brian Schatz is looking to build his office staff.
Schatz, in a news release, says his office will take resumes of people interested in serving in either his Washington, D.C., or Hawaii offices. He says he's looking for "talented, energetic and public-minded people" who want to serve the state and nation.
The deadline for resumes is Friday.
Meanwhile, Schatz says it's important the state's congressional delegation unify around what's best for Hawaii. And he says every indication so far is that it will be able to do that.
Gov. Neil Abercrombie appointed Schatz for the Senate seat previously held by Daniel Inouye. Inouye, who died Dec. 17, had said he wanted U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa to succeed him.
