If you are one of the thousands who spends hours commuting in traffic just imagine how your life would change if you could spend those hours with your family being able to do things like play with your keiki in the park and watch the sunset.

Imagine being able to work closer to home in a career that you enjoy.


Well, there are over 60,000 Leeward jobs, one for just about every adult household member on the Leeward coast—and one of those opportunities is waiting for you.

I invite you to be a part of this exciting job growth on our Leeward Coast at the 5th Annual Hire Leeward Job & Career Fair, taking place on Saturday, June 24, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the University of Hawaii—West Oahu.

With the annual theme of “Connecting Leeward Residents with Leeward Jobs”, the Fair will host over 70 businesses offering Leeward-based job opportunities.  There were over thousands of attendees at last year’s Fair and this year’s Fair is expected to have a large turnout as well.
