With the annual theme of “Connecting Leeward Residents with Leeward Jobs”, the 5th Hire Leeward Job & Career Fair will host over 70 businesses and organizations offering a wide range of Leeward-based job opportunities including: healthcare, financial services, food service, hospitality, retail, administrative, and more.
“For our Leeward residents– this isn’t just a career change, this is a lifestyle change,” said
Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine. “By finding a job closer to home, residents can leave their days of sitting in traffic behind, and spend those treasured hours with their families. Many don’t realize that there are over 60,000 Leeward jobs on the Leeward coast; one for just about every adult in my district.”
Councilmember Pine is proud to announce that this year’s Presenting Sponsor of the Hire Leeward Fair is Ko Olina Resort, whose partners, including Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, Four
Seasons Resort O’ahu at Ko Olina, Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club and Ko Olina Golf Club, will be looking to fill immediate job opportunities.
According to Ko Olina, the growing 642-acre resort company expects to generate an additional 27,300 jobs on the Leeward coast within the next 10 years, with an estimated 31,800 permanent jobs at full build-out. By partnering with Hire Leeward, they hope to connect hundreds of career opportunities to West O’ahu residents in the near future.
Additionally, Four Seasons Resort O’ahu at Ko Olina Director of Human Resources Joseph Hodnette will be present at Saturday’s Hire Leeward fair to provide free Leeward career education seminars, helping residents learn the skills and make the connections they need to find a job closer to home.
The 5th Annual Hire Leeward Job & Career Fair expects to host thousands of residents in attendance. Attendees can get priority and complimentary entrance into the Fair by registering online.
