On Tuesday, Dec. 5, the O'ahu Workforce Development Board and the Department of Community Services American Job Center Hawai'i will hold a Job and Resource fair for former Island Air employees at the Dillingham Shopping Plaza at 1505 Dillingham Boulevard, Suites 110 and 206 from 9 a.m. through noon.
The Job and Resource fair will then be open to all job seekers between noon and 1 p.m. Admission and parking is free.
"Oahu’s unemployment rate is at historically low levels and it's my hope that former Island Air employees taking part in the Job and Resource Fair can find a position of their choice and bring comfort to their families during the holiday season," said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell.
Twenty employers (listed below) will be at the Job and Resource Fair to recruit for approximately 250 openings, which include the following job descriptions: accounting, business analysis, cable technician, customer service representative, food service, housekeeping, mechanic, office administration, project manager, sales, store manager, social service and transportation worker.
As some employers will be interviewing and offering jobs on the spot, applicants are advised to come dressed in professional attire with copies of their resume. In addition to the hiring event, the Job and Resource Fair will provide a venue for public and private organizations to share information on resources and services that are available to assist workers who are in-between jobs.
Community colleges will be presenting re-training opportunities at the event through short-term certification courses, apprenticeship programs and associate degree programs. The Hawai'i Department of Human Services will also provide information on financial assistance and childcare programs, as well as MedQuest requirements. Meanwhile, the Unemployment Insurance Division will be on hand to answer questions about unemployment benefits, and the Family Tree Project will provide information on family and therapeutic counseling. Volunteer Legal Services Hawai'i will also conduct workshops on tenant/landlord rights and emergency housing subsidies, and Hawai'i USA will cover information on consumer debt management and access to low-interest loans.
